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.”
