The idea of organizing an event of high scientific value, mainly engaged in strategic areas of personal care has emerged on late 2016 between members of the Italian and USA Executive Boards.
SICC, the Italian Society of Cosmetology, has always been in favor of a synergistic integration between research models in the most advanced Nations in cosmetic science. It is also one of the most important strategic objectives of the World Federation (IFSCC) to promote intercontinental dissemination and training in cosmetic science to students and Junior cosmetologists.
Leveraging then the appeal of “Made in Italy”, it was decided by mutual agreement to hold the event in Italian touristic resorts with high cultural surroundings.
The major players of the Cosmetic industry will be asked to present their cutting edge scientific results in order to claim the relevance of their Personal Care products for the wellness of human beings and to defeat the common believe that Cosmetic Science is a by-discipline of the pharmaceutical science
Besides USA and Japan, that have been actively participating to the first 2 editions and that continue to endorse the 3rd edition, we have involved for the 2019 edition the Hong Kong and the new borne China Societies of Cosmetic Chemists!
The 1st IPCE Edition have been held in Stresa on June 19th-20th, 2017; the main themes considered technological and formulation excellence on three Personal Care disciplines: Make-up, Skin Care and Sun Care; the program was completed by pre-conference educational courses on Epigenetics and skin Lipodomics, The 2nd IPCE Conference has been held in Sestri Levante from June 3rd to 5th, 2018; the main theme “The Future of Cosmetics is Now” has dealt with 4 major items (Emotional Cosmetics; Hi-Tech in Personal Care; The Future of Ingredients and Functional Cosmetics) and two pre-conference educational courses on “Microbiome and Microbiota” and “Cosmetic Testing”.
The 3rd Edition will be hold exceptionally in Hong Kong, because of the contemporary engagement of the Italian Society of Cosmetic Chemists in the organization of the 25th IFSCC Conference on 1-2 October in Milan, taking advantage of the concomitance of the 14th ASCS Conference organized by the HK and China Societies.
We can anticipate that the 4th Edition in 2020 will return to Italy or ….. travel in another Continent to comply with the Acronym Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence Conference!
