The Michigan Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists is the newest of 19 Chapters within a national society that is comprised of over 4,000 members. The Society was founded in 1945 to promote high standards of practice in the cosmetic sciences and to provide the proper forums for the exchange of ideas and new developments in cosmetic research and technology. 


Dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science, the Society strives to increase and disseminate scientific information through meetings and publications. By promoting research in cosmetic science and industry, and by setting high ethical, professional and educational standards, we reach our goal of improving the qualifications of cosmetic scientists. Our mission is to further the interests and recognition of cosmetic scientists while maintaining the confidence of the public in the cosmetic and toiletries industry.


The chapter conducts quarterly meetings around the great state of Michigan, each featuring industry speakers presenting the lastest innovations and topics within the cosmetic industry. In addition, the chapter also host a biennial 1-day scientific symposium on the lastest topics impacting the global cosmetics industry.
