The Society of Cosmetic Scientists holds several events throughout the year. Members can request a Certificate of Attendance for SCS-organised events, demonstrating their continuing professional development.

We have around 1000 members and are affiliated to the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC). The main objective of the Society is to advance the science of cosmetics. It does this by attracting membership among highly qualified individuals with both academic and industrial experience in the field of cosmetics and related sciences, as well as through its activities including publications, educational programmes and scientific meetings.

As a not-for-profit organisation we are governed by our SCS Council, the decision-making committee who are made up of 9 ordinary members of the Society and 5 Officers of the Society who are all elected by Full Members of the Society.
