I am delighted that, during my year as President of the SCS, I will be part of shaping this event. It is an opportunity to showcase leading research, talk about the future and highlight the constant innovation that characterises our industry. The Conference podium presentations, industry exhibition stands and the hundreds of posters that will be put forward come together to form a three day festival of cosmetic science! At a time when human well-being and sustainability is constantly discussed, our industry helps people to look great and feel good – and science is driving…

…our knowledge about how to do this with a light footprint on the Earth. Science is revolutionising the way we live every aspect of our lives – and that includes the cosmetic products that help people thrive…

IFSCC Congresses take place all over the world and are organised and funded by the qualified national societies. In the UK the national society is the Society of Cosmetic Scientists (SCS), which encompasses Ireland. The SCS one of the founding members of the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC).

It will be twenty years since the UK last hosted an IFSCC Congress. For many of the younger professionals in our industry – that is a life time! This is our chance to shine the spotlight on the science behind our industry; on how our companies and organisations drive the innovation, performance and safety of the beauty industry. Many SCS members give freely of their precious time, often generously supported by their employers in recognition of the value of the peer support and learning that our meetings contribute to professional development. None do more so than the IFSCC Congresses and Conferences. The 2022 Congress will be a truly global event that brings our industry together; it is a place for our community of cosmetic scientists from all around the world to share their latest findings.

There is nowhere else that this happens and I invite everyone working in our industry to help us celebrate, whether as a sponsor, a presenter or a delegate at the IFSCC 2022 in London.
