Introducing IFSCC Research Awards

The IFSCC is a forum for presenting research findings aspired by cosmetic researchers across the globe.

The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) is an international organization of cosmetic engineer associations founded in 1959. With headquarters in New York, 79 countries and regions and more than 16,000 members are part of the IFSCC (as of October 2020). Japan formally joined the IFSCC in 1962.
The IFSCC supports activities for the improvement of cosmetic technology and for the development of safe and beneficial cosmetic products. In particular, the IFSCC congresses and conferences are major events where cosmetic engineers gather from all around the world and present the results of their recent research. The congresses are held every even-numbered year and conferences are held every odd-numbered year.

Shiseido has been awarded with the highest number of awards in the world.

Shiseido has been awarded a total of 28 awards at IFSCC Congresses and Conferences between 1976 and 2020. This overwhelming number of awards is an indication of Shiseido’s unrivalled level of technology.
