« New Systems + New Focus = New SCC »- Cosmetics & Toiletries

David Smith, Executive Director of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC)

« In desperate need of a system upgrade to meet consumer expectations, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) found itself held back. It needed a plan to adapt for both the industry and its the members. That’s where we began this discussion with David Smith, executive director of the SCC.

Can you recall life before the Internet? It’s hard to. Heck, some of you may have never not known the Internet. (To give you “kids” an idea, in the old days, we used things called “fax machines” to send “instant messages.”)

As the Internet went mainstream (and got faster), users were transported to a digital place where they became the center of their own reality. That sure changed the way we all research, communicate, attend college, order dinner, etc.—and it’s still changing. As consumers, we can now get what we want, when and how we want it; and this has set a precedent for what’s possible.

As such, established businesses were forced to evolve from offering traditional products and services, to anticipating consumer needs and even reinventing (customizing) to meet them. And in the meantime, new industries emerged from this consumer-centered dynamic. E-commerce is one great example.

It was within this setting of system upgrades and consumer expectations where our very own Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) found itself held back—not unlike other organizations. It needed a plan to adapt for not just the industry, but for the members it serves. That’s where we began our discussion with David Smith, executive director of the SCC, about several big changes.(…) »

« Epigenetics and Aging: A New Player in Skin Care »- Cosmetics and Toiletries

 » The cosmetics and skin care industry is constantly developing new products and technologies that aim to slow down the skin aging process. Epigenetic processes play an important role in skin aging. Several new cosmetic products target epigenetic mechanisms and have shown promising results as novel cosmeceuticals.

Epigenetics describes the physiological reprogramming that occurs in the cell without changes in the DNA sequence. The main epigenetic tools used by the cell are:

  • DNA methylation
  • histone modifications
  • histone variants
  • chromatin remodeling nanomachines, and
  • the regulatory activity of microRNAs (miRNAs).

The combinative use of these tools regulates the accessibility of the DNA to outside factors in the nucleus, which affects vital cellular processes including transcription and DNA repair. Although the study of epigenetics in clinical medicine is relatively new, the applications to dermatology are profound—with mechanisms and future therapeutic modalities being examined in melanoma, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, psoriasis and aging. The cosmetic industry has taken serious interest and begun to develop new anti-aging products that target epigenetic processes. (…) »


These products use a Himalayan red rice active ingredient, which works by decreasing DNA methylation levels on gene promoter regions.

« Study Finds High Levels Of Stress Leads To Skin Complaints »- Cosmetics Design-Europe

« Researchers say that going down the non-drug route to deal with psychological stress and also protect the skin could be the answer having found that heightened stress levels are associated with many skin complaints; although not pimples on the face.


A research team at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) and Temple University made the observation having carried out a questionnaire-based study, published in the international, peer-reviewed journal Acta Dermato-Venereologica.

The aim was to assess the relationship between perceived psychological stress and the prevalence of various skin symptoms in a large, randomly selected sample of undergraduate students. (…) »
