FIRST CO-ORGANISED IPCE CONFERENCE HELD WITH SICC CONGRESS SCORES A HIT

From 19-20 June Italy’s Stresa Convention Centre hosted the 42nd SICC National Congress and the 1st Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence Conference (IPCE), co-organised by the SICC (Italy) and SCC (USA) and endorsed by the SCJ (Japan).

Four scientific sessions featured 22 top level lectures and were introduced by well known keynote speakers Luigi Rigano, Miki Minamino, Fujihiro Kanda and Peter Tsolis. They shared cutting-edge information on the progress of personal care science in the world. 

Preceding the conference on Sunday 18 June, educational courses on advanced topics including epigenetics and lipodomics set the scene: 

  • Molecular Biology and Gene Expression for the Cosmetic Chemist (moderated by Howard Epstein)
  • Skin Lipids: Essential Role of Lipids on Skin Health (moderated by Apostolos Pappas)

On the same day, a roundtable on legal differences offered a lively discussion involving regulatory officers and industry experts. 

Both the educational courses and the roundtable were greatly appreciated by the audience.

The enchanting atmosphere of Lake Maggiore and the Borromean Islands formed the backdrop to what proved to be an unforgettable event for the 150 international attendees. Based on the success of this first event, it has already been decided to repeat this interesting Conference in June 2018, again in Italy, probably in a different charming location on the Mediterranean sea!
