SCC Midyear Symposium in St Louis Wrap-Up

Last week was the Mid-Year SCC Scientific Symposium held in St. Louis, Mo. It was an excellent event that featured two days of fascinating talks on microbiology in cosmetics, emerging cosmetic markets, anti-aging technologies, and the science of consumer perception.

During the talks a few of us were Tweeting our notes and you can see them by doing a search of the hashtag #sccstlouis

Here is a short summary…

Most of the talks were both informative and entertaining. I thought it was an excellent meeting. There were also a couple of social events in which we got to mingle with the couple hundred cosmetic chemists there. It was great fun. I can’t wait for the next one.
