Cosmetics: Science for Beauty and Lifestyle

IFSCC Congress 2018 – Registration open now!

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Hosted by the German Society of Cosmetic Chemists, the 30th IFSCC Congress, which will take place in Munich, Germany from September 18 – 21, 2018, is going to be the highlight of the cosmetic science world this year.

The 3-day congress programme will dig into the latest research of all cosmetic disciplines, bringing together the international elite of cosmetic scientists. Eight sessions with more than 80 scientific papers, together with hundreds of poster presentations and an exhibition with the key suppliers provide a comprehensive insight into the latest developments in cosmetic science.

In addition to this, 4 workshops round up the educational value of the Congress. The topics of the workshops are:

• Optical non-invasive in-vivo measurements in the cosmetic research
• Skin models in cosmetics
• Preservation of cosmetics
• Development and application of formulations containing caffeine for hair growth and beauty

This event is a unique opportunity to meet the international cosmetic research elite!


The motto of this year’s IFSCC Congress is: Science for Beauty and Lifestyle

The motto describes the demands of a modern society, which looks for science that connects research and emotion, progress and sustainability, thus creating emotions and results which reflect a young lifestyle.

The city of Munich has the reputation of combining a thriving city with a charming atmosphere. Munich is renowned for its lifestyle, for beauty and fashion and is the ideal city for hosting this IFSCC Congress.

Register now and enjoy the early bird price.

And don’t forget: on Saturday, September 22, the 2018 Munich Oktoberfest starts!
