The IFSCC 33rd Congress will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 4th to 7th September 2023 and we would like to welcome you!

Under the theme «Rethinking Beauty Science» we will try to deal with the most current and relevant scientific topics in the sector divided into 3 large specific groups:

Rethinking Skin Science: Skin, oral, sun, and hair care: breakthrough technologies for cosmetic developments promoted by recent scientific research. New substances, new functions, new efficacies, new evaluation techniques.
Rethinking Beauty Science: Texture, odor and color, multi-sensoriality. A strong added value to cosmetics, its impact on uses, consumers and marketing. Cosmetic and beauty product experiences backed up by technology.
Rethinking Nature: Responsible cosmetic development. What have we learned from nature? Towards the guarantee of safer cosmetic products.

In addition, there will be interesting pre-Congress working groups and the technical exhibition with the main manufacturers that will present the latest developments in the sector.

It will be a great opportunity to meet and learn, teach, demonstrate and of course share our science, industry and wisdom along 4 great days. We will also be able to share, know and debate besides the conferences and posters sessions, in various and chosen social events such as the Congress Welcome Cocktail; a fun, different and informal dinner; and the closing gala dinner with great personalities from the cosmetic science and industry from around the world.

We hope it will be of your interest, wishing to see you in September 2023 in Barcelona.
