Society of Cosmetic Chemists donates to Cosmetic Science program

The Society of Cosmetic Chemists, the national professional organization for the cosmetic and personal care industry,  donated 18 books and 7 SCC monographs to the UT Cosmetic Science Library. This gracious donation will enable our students to enhance their access to program-related reference materials. Students most certainly appreciate having these materials available to assist them in their studies and help them become more knowledgeable in the field of cosmetic science and personal care. We truly appreciate the SCC’s support.

Submitted by The P1 class, Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design 

P1 students from the Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design major had the privilege of going to the Society of Cosmetic Chemist Michigan Chapter meeting in Big Rapids, Michigan at Ferris State University. We arrived to the university’s campus early afternoon to attend a presentation given by the executive board of the chapter. The presentation was about careers in the cosmetic industry and why making cosmetics is a science. After the talk, we had the opportunity to display posters and to network with major cosmetic companies such as Dow Corning and Amway before the meeting officially started.

There were two lectures given by guest speakers that day entitled, “Green Fragrance Solubilizers” and “Exopolysaccharides – EPS.” They were both very interesting and educational and gave us all an insight into the science of formulation. After the talks, we were able to continue networking over a lovely meal catered by the university. As a class, we graciously appreciate the funding from the dean’s office that made this trip a success. None of the students that went had ever been to a SCC meeting before, and we were very excited that we had the opportunity to go thanks to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. We gained so much knowledge on the industry and the science behind formulating.

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.
