The Science Behind the Future of Personal Care

Following the information we are currently receiving from the UK Government about the coronavirus, the SCS has cancelled the SCS Annual Conference taking place on 30 June – 1 July 2020 in its current form.

We will be looking at moving the programme for the SCS Annual Conference to SCS Formulate taking place later this year 17-18 November at the Ricoh Arena.

About the SCS Annual Conference

The ‘Science Behind the Future of Personal Care’ continues the SCS Annual Conference series which focusses on alternate years on the broad topics of “Science” and “Nature”. These series of conferences cover a range of topics and themes and provide a level of discussion of the current topics in cosmetic science that you won’t find elsewhere.

The cosmetics industry is a dynamic and constantly changing environment. In terms of science, technology, regulation and the commercial market we operate in, there is a constant drive for advancement. The aim of this years SCS Conference is to bring us up to speed with those developments and prepare us for the years ahead.  It is one of the core aims of the SCS to provide opportunities for education and continued professional development in the area of cosmetic science and the agenda has been created with this in mind. For 2020 we are thrilled to welcome speakers from some of the most important personal care companies in Europe.

In personal care technological advances come in many different forms, from a greater understanding of the properties of the skin to a new test method for UV protection to a new way of assessing how consumers interact with their products.
