The 25th IFSCC Congress closed with an exquisite gala dinner, hosted in the former olympic facilities at the Palau Sant Jordi. Delegates were entertained by street performers, flamenco dancers, castanet and fan dancers, excerpts performed from the opera Carmen, two dancing horses and more, positioned intermittently between award announcements and the passing of the gavel to the new IFSCC president for 2009, Xavier Romeu of Spain.
Award recipients for the 2008 IFSCC Congress included Erik Schulze zur Wiesche of Henkel for the poster, “Specific Repair of Aging Hair Keratin”; for best basic research, Shohei Kuroda of Pola Chemical Industries for the paper, “Epidermal Tight Junction: The Master Skin Barrier Regulator”; and for best applied research, Tomo Osawa of Shiseido for the paper, “Development of a Water-resistant/Detergent-washable Powder Coated with Stimuli-responsive Polymer and its Application in Sun-care Products.”
