A Brief History of the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC)

The IFSCC is a truly worldwide federation dedicated to international cooperation in cosmetic science and technology. Interest in the formation of such an organization crystallized in Paris in 1956 and culminated in the birth of the federation in Brussels, Belgium on September 8,1959. At that time there were only 8 countries entering the Federation. Today, 45 Societies representing 56 countries have met the high standards of scientific and educational qualifications of the IFSCC and, as members, support the organization’s aims and programs. The most recent countries to join are Russia, Slovakia, India, China (Hong Kong), Singapore and Malaysia. The number of individual members in the Federation now exceeds 14,000 and is still growing.
