Yan Liu said: “I was thrilled to learn that I won this prestigious prize. I am pleased and honored to accept this award! IFSCC is the top-class organization for cosmetics. Your recognition is very important for my career. I am longing to attend the IFSCC 2019 Milan Conference!

“I have always worked in the cosmetic industry, most of time in R&D but with a short period at marketing CMI, because I wanted to explore this industry from different perspectives. Now at Pechoin R&D, I focus on exploring advanced technologies and designing new products to fulfill consumer desires and unmet needs. IFSCC is a major source of inspiration for my work.”
