Numerous tests have been developed to estimate a surfactant’s mildness in rinse-off formulations. In this study, mixed surfactant systems were examined for their impact on surfactant penetration into the skin and skin hydration using in vivo and ex vivo methods.
The objective of this study was to assess the variables related to the usage of cosmetic products among a representative sample of the Lebanese population, including self-perception, facial attractiveness satisfaction, body image, and self-esteem.
The goal of the USDA’s BioPreferred® Program is to increase the use and purchase of Biobased products. Webinar speakers Kate Lewis, a senior analyst for the USDA’s BioPreferred® Program and Florencia Goren, the Vice President for Corporate Development and Strategy for Beta Analytic Testing Laboratory will give an overview of the BioPreferred® Program. Kate and Florencia will discuss what the BioPreferred® program offers the industry and consumers, and how the audience can navigate the process to have their ingredients or marketed formulations become USDA Certified Biobased Products.
The Society thinks it’s time to acknowledge more members more often, so we’ve decided to place a spotlight on members whose dedication to the SCC has not gone unnoticed. Learn how one way in a lab working on various cosmetic products, changed Emmanuel Quartey’s life forever!
