Guidelines – SCS logo

Guidelines for use of the SCS logo by members

SCS membership is awarded to an individual, not a company and therefore members should ensure that when using the SCS logo it should relate to themselves and not their company.

It should not be used in the general area of a company website or on company business cards.

It can however be used on company websites when related to a member, for example if a company website has individual personal profiles, SCS membership can be disclosed and the logo used on their profile page.

Independent consultants should also follow the same guidelines.

Individual members can use the following after their name on business cards or signatures on email:

Fellow of the Society – FSCS (logo can be requested from the Secretariat)
Full Member – MSCS (logo can be requested from the Secretariat)
SCS Diploma in Cosmetic Science – SCS Dip

Please contact the SCS Secretariat for further details
