Dr Oborska said: “By establishing the Polish Society of Cosmetic Scientists, we share the joy of returning to the best traditions of the Polish Society of Cosmetic Chemists and we invite all its former members. We also invite people who have not been related to us so far. We have a great enthusiasm for action and many plans. We will apply to join IFSCC and certainly start with educational events.”
