NYSCC Mission Statement

The Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) is dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science. The Society strives to increase and disseminate scientific information through meetings and publications. The Society promotes research in cosmetic science and industry, and sets high ethical, professional and educational standards to improve the qualifications of cosmetic scientists. Our mission is to further the interests and recognition of cosmetic scientists while maintaining the confidence of the public in the cosmetic and toiletries industry.


What the NYSCC Offers

The New York Chapter of the Society (NYSCC) is by far the largest Chapter, with over 1400 members. With major events like our Suppliers Day, all day educational seminars and social events, we provide varied opportunities for our members to continually expand their professional and social horizons. We have led the way in using social media to extend our interaction with our members and anyone interested in cosmetics as a science. We consider ourselves the global leader in providing scientific and commercial knowledge relating to our industry.

While most of our members are educated as scientists, anyone can become a member as a National Affiliate or Student Member, and all our meetings are open to everyone. Our website and newsletter, the Cosmetiscope, provide complete information on our activities and provide much valuable information on cosmetics and personal care products.
