Wrap up: January Chapter Meeting

Didn’t make it to the January chapter meeting???

Well, you missed a great talk on the use of analytical chemistry techniques that Dr. Joyce Zhao and her colleagues at Jordi Labs employ to identify the constituent components of various personal care products. In her case studies Joyce reviewed results from her analysis of:

  1. Bar soap
  2. Rose petals
  3. Designer vs. Imitation fragrance (hint…spend the extra money!)
  4. Lot-to-lot comparison of bar soap

Joyce’s presentation was impressive, informational and a delight to attend. If you did not get the chance to attend or would like to review what was presented, then Click Here for the slide deck and enjoy!

The 2016 IFSCC was a wonderful opportunity to connect with people from all over the personal care and cosmetic science industries and to learn more about the newest developments in basic research and technology. Below are some photos from our members who attended the conference in sunny Orlando.
