An essential part of the IFSCC’s mission is to support research in the field of cosmetic science.
Every year the IFSCC holds a Congress (even years) or Conference (odd years) at which podium presentations are given and posters presented. Awards, each with a cash prize, are given at both events. Other Awards and Prizes are given to individual Scientists and Societies.
Note that with the change to All Congresses starting in 2023, there will be a slight change in the awards given.
