The SCS encourages scientists globally with an interest in cosmetics to submit abstracts for the opportunity to present from the podium or as a scientific poster at the 2022 IFSCC Congress. Abstracts will be reviewed and selected by SCS’s Scientific Committee. The submission deadline is January 31, 2022. Selected winners will be notified by email on March 1, 2022. The three-day congress features a variety of topics within the beauty industry, from technological advances and innovation, to beauty-based science.

Majella Lane, M.D., chair of the Scientific Committee and director of Skin Research Group, UCL School of Pharmacy, London, said:

"We are excited to announce the opening of the abstract portal on This moment marks a significant step in the planning of this Congress—the first IFSCC Congress to be held back in the UK for 20 years. We will be looking for research that progresses cosmetic science and has not been previously presented or published to the industry.

"The outstanding standard of the science that will be presented at the event makes the 32nd IFSCC Congress London a must-attend occasion for everyone involved in cosmetic research. There is nowhere like London to give people a unique stage to demonstrate their creativity and innovation and to really shine."
