In fall 2015, the P1 and P2 Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design students attended an educational seminar about advanced skin care organized by the Michigan Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) chapter. SCC is the national organization for the cosmetic and personal care industry. At the seminar, which was held in Grand Rapids, Mich., most of the P2 students presented posters to the industrial attendees.

UT students represented the only population of students at the meeting, as our college’s Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design program is the only one of its kind in the nation.  The Michigan SCC chapter covered the cost of the 2016 SCC membership fee for UT students.

Five UT cosmetic science students – one from the MS in Industrial Pharmacy program and four P2 Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design students – were invited and sponsored by the national SCC office to attend the annual SCC meeting, which took place in Manhattan, NY in December 2015. Each of the invited students presented posters at this event, which welcomed nearly 1,000 attendees from all over the US and Europe. Students received complimentary registration and hotel accommodations in addition to $250 toward travel expenses.
