Submissions for the Journal of Cosmetic Science

Journal of Cosmetic Science


The JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE publishes papers concerned with cosmetics or the sciences underlying cosmetics, as well as other papers of interest to SCC members. In particular, the journal welcomes papers concerned with cosmetics, cosmetic products, fragrances, their formulation and their effects in skin care or in overall consumer well-being, as well as papers relating to the sciences underlying cosmetics, such as human skin physiology, color physics, physical chemistry of colloids and emulsions, or psychological effects of olfaction in humans. Papers of interest to the cosmetic industry and to the understanding of the cosmetic markets are also welcome for publication. The Editorial Advisory Board is responsible for establishing policy and maintaining the Journal’s high standards. The Editor relies on the advice of reviewers who are experts in the field in deciding whether a submission has sufficient scientific merit to warrant publication.

All papers presented before a meeting or seminar of the SOCIETY OF COSMETIC CHEMISTS, or those papers submitted directly to the Editor will be considered for publication in the Journal. Papers presented before the SOCIETY OF COSMETIC CHEMISTS are the property of the SOCIETY and may not be published in or submitted to other journals. Only if the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE is unable to publish a presented paper, may it be published in another journal of the author's choice.

Results concerning animal (not human) physiology are outside of the scope of the Journal, therefore manuscripts reporting results related to it will not be taken into consideration for publication in the Journal of Cosmetic Science.




SWSCC Mindbenders Program 2017


Volunteer Opportunity: Calling all Cosmetic Chemists!

We need at least 35 Cosmetic Chemists to help with the SWSCC and Mary Kay day at Mindbenders Summer Camp on June 21st. Please volunteer to help with this fantastic opportunity within the STEaM fields for 6th, 7th and 8th grade FISD students.

Mindbender Academy encourages participants to explore the world of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Each day features fun, hands-on activities to extend learning outside the classroom. “It is our hope that we can continue to inspire our Mindbender participants with fun and challenging activities that introduce them to multiple career opportunities within the STEaM fields.” said Peter Burns, past president of the Frisco Education Foundation Board of Directors.

The SWSCC has teamed up with Mary Kay Cosmetics to take the lead on June 21st from 7am to 6pm. We will have 400 students to participate that day. We will have 8 class rooms of 25 students in the morning session (8am-12pm: 200 students) and will repeat this session in the afternoon (1pm -5pm: 200 new students). The camp will be held at the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center, 9889 Wade Boulevard in Frisco.

Mindbender Academy is a program of the Frisco Education Foundation made possible each year thanks to volunteers and the financial support of numerous businesses and organizations.
