Contactless Cosmetics: Shaping the Future of Personal Care Sciences

Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence

Dear Visitor,

the echo of the extraordinary success of the 25th IFSCC Conference organized in October in Milan has not yet gone away, which we are called to repeat in a new International event: the 4th IPCE Conference.

Due to the emergency situation created by the COVID19, the original plan to hold the Conference live had to be reviewed: to give continuity to this event, so that, as established in the constitutive objectives, the authors of the best Posters at the last IFSCC Event can give their lecture to a competent audience, we have decided to transform the IPCE in a Web Conference on demand.

Even in this unusual format, this conference promises to be the most fruitful Italian scientific cosmetic event of the year; the Conference format will reflect that of the first IPCE Editions, so cleverly conceived by the Italian-Japanese-American steering committee: a Scientific Conference that gives relevance to the most deserving Posters presented at the last IFSCC Event; in this case, the 25th IFSCC Conference held in Milan on last October.

The steering Committee has decided to keep the original scientific program; the lecturers have registered their presentations in a suitable video format and all them, together with the 4  keynote lectures will be assembled to reconstitute the 4 sessions as originally scheduled: whoever registered will be authorised to look at the lectures at their best convenience for 1 month from the launch of the Conference on Sept  11th

This year’s theme “Contactless Cosmetics: Shaping the future of Personal Care Sciences” will deal with the biological processes, the effectiveness of formulations, and the evaluation methodologies by focusing them on the skin surface and its external boundaries, delegating functions (both positive and any adverse) to the biosensors and receptors located on the SC and Epidermis.

Unfortunately, with this format, the socio-cultural initiatives will be missing, but we will expect you participating at the 5th IPCE edition that, we promise, will be really unforgettable to properly celebrate the … new life; at the 100 “Earliest Birds” who register to this web conference we reserve a welcome surprise for the 2021 5th IPCE Edition.


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 involved for the 2019 edition the Hong Kong and the new borne China Societies of Cosmetic Chemists!
