Our Mission

Thank you for visiting our Chapter’s website and becoming part of this growing and dynamic community.  It is our goal to elevate the role of the cosmetic chemists and formulators in product, ingredient and brand development by providing year-round engaging and relevant educational, sourcing and networking programs.

A focus on science and sustainability will be woven throughout all our programs and activities throughout this year.  We will also endeavor to make our content, collective mindshare, and resources accessible to beauty and personal care professionals from around the world.

I am also pleased to announce that we are expanding our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives with a newly formed D&I Committee whose mission is to engage all society members to participate in conversation and scientific ideas that provide leadership in the cosmetics community around Diversity and Inclusion. All current and future members will be embraced and recognized regardless of color, gender, age or sexual orientation.

Please visit our Events section frequently for more information on the inspiring, illuminating, inclusive, and fun programs that the Chapter has planned for this year. I sincerely hope that I can re-connect and meet many of you in-person.

Finally, as the SCC’s largest Chapter and organizers of Suppliers’ Day, North America’s main event for beauty and personal care ingredients and formulation innovations, we rely on the dedication, support, and expertise of our members. I strongly urge you to consider becoming a volunteer and help shape the industry and this Chapter’s future!  You’ll gain incredible networking opportunities that span the globe while providing real value to your colleagues.   Please click here to complete the volunteer form, to find the best fit for you within our committees and upcoming projects.
