SCC Holds Polymers Course at National Headquarters on Oct. 28

September 27, 2013

The Society of Cosmetic Chemists will hold its first ever in-house course, ”Recent Advances in Polymers and Macromolecules in Polymers,” on Oct. 28, 2013 at its national headquarters in New York City.

Macromolecules represent the third largest category of cosmetic ingredients. Controlled radical polymerization, biomimetics, recombitant engineering and the drive towards “green” ingredients have all caused diversification and improvement of the functions of macromolecular cosmetic ingredients. This workshop will trace recent trends in the use of macromolecules by examination of patent filings, supplier offerings and recently introduced finished goods.

Attendance will be limited to 20 to allow discussion and development of the concepts. At the conclusion of this workshop, the participants should have a good understanding of the trends in the industry for macromolecular ingredients.

This limited attendance event will be instructed by Robert Lochhead. Dr. Lochhead, who has spent 25 years as an industrial researcher in polymer synthesis and science, is currently a professor at the School of High Performance Materials at the University of Southern Mississippi. He is an inventor on 22 patents and has written more than 100 papers and scientific reviews.

The fee for members is  $200, $100 for students, and $375 for non-members.
