NYSCC Chairman Giorgino D. Macalino welcomes attendees to Suppliers' Day At-Home Live Week of Beauty.

Not even COVID-19 can stop Suppliers' Day. Giorgino Macalino, chairman of the New York Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists, opens NYSCC Suppliers' Day At Home Live Week of Beauty, September 28-October 2, 2020. Macalino noted that once the pandemic took hold and forced a lockdown in the New York/New Jersey area, NYSCC members jumped into action, creating online platforms to continue to educate members and produced hand sanitizers to distribute to local hospitals.

"I am bursting with pride and gratitude in how this chapter, board, committees and members have all quickly pivoted and re-adapted to this new reality," said Macalino.

He noted that the NYSCC At-Home Live series was launched rapidly in April to provide members with relevant content. The Chapter also created in-depth programs on the skin microbiome, sun care and color cosmetics. 

In other developments, NYSCC teamed up with the Long Island chapter to celebrate Pride Month and also produced 10,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to distribute to frontline workers in the New York/New Jersey Metro Area.
