Dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science, the Society strives to increase and disseminate scientific information through meetings and publications.
Comprised of over 4,000 members, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists was founded in 1945 to promote high standards of practice in the cosmetic sciences. We serve as a focus and provide the proper forums for the exchange of ideas and new developments in cosmetic research and technology.
Since 1948 Chapters have been the lifeblood of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists. We now have 19 Chapters throughout the United States and Canada which conduct monthly meetings, educational seminars, suppliers' days and publish monthly newsletters. These Chapters are run by dedicated volunteers who lend their time and expertise to the smooth and efficient operation of each Chapter.
