The Southwest Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemist (SWSCC) is dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science by striving to increase and disseminate scientific information through meetings and publications. By promoting research in cosmetic science and industry, and by setting high ethical, professional and educational standards, we reach our goal of improving the qualifications of cosmetic scientists.
Our mission is to further the interests and recognition of cosmetic scientists while maintaining the confidence of the public in the cosmetic and toiletries industry.
The Southwest Chapter was formed in 1975 with the help of Ole Lorenzetti who submitted a petition to National with the names of the first 25 members. The chapter has grown to the third largest chapter within the SCC with over 250 members. We conduct 6 monthly meetings throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with a focus on the latest innovations in the cosmetic/personal care industry. Our chapter hosts an all day Educational Seminar or Suppliers day annually.
