The Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 Robert A. Kramer Lifetime Service Award as Robert Y. Lochhead, PhD (University of Southern Mississippi) and Joseph P. Pavlichko (posthumously). The awards will be presented during the Society’s 73rd Annual Scientific Meeting on December 17, 2019 at the Sheraton NY Times Square.
Application of sunscreens is one of the most efficient ways of protection; however, their efficiency and safety have remained a challenging issue. So, it seems necessary to consider the potential side effects for limiting the use and amount of sunscreens. In this study, an high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system equipped with a UV–visible detector has been used.
The Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) announced the election results for the organization’s 2020 executive officers and area directors. Together with the Board of Directors, they are the governing body focused on the mission, strategy and goals of the Society and are responsible for representing the interests of more than 5,400 individual cosmetics and personal care industry members globally.

Using Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for cage testing, we studied the influence of mosquito density and sex ratio in laboratory repellency tests of the biopesticide Ethyl butylacetylaminopropionate (IR3535™) (20%) against three mosquito species ( Aedes aegypti , Anopheles aquasalis , and Culex quinquefasciatus ).
Quantitative analysis of dimethicone is often required to support quality assurance testing of finished products. We report a new, rapid analytical method based on Fourier transform infrared spectrometry, using a special attenuated total reflectance cell to determine concentrations of dimethicone directly in aqueous emulsions present in personal care products. This rapid, simplified method eliminates sample preparation to remove water, while providing reliable results across a wide range of dimethicone concentrations.

The impact that rhamnolipid (RL) and sophorolipid (SL) biosurfactants has on solution surface activity when used in conjunction with the commercially important zwitterionic surfactant cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) is highlighted for the first time through surface tension and surface rheology measurements on binary and ternary mixtures of these surfactants.
The Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) is pleased to announce Zoe Diana Draelos, MD, as the recipient of the inaugural Florence Wall Women in Cosmetic Chemistry Award, the Society’s first-ever award honoring women’s scientific and leadership contributions to the cosmetics and personal care industry.
