Welcome to the Website of the
23. IFSCC Conference 2015
in Zürich from 21.–23. September




The Swiss organization of cosmetic chemists SWISS SCC is organizing the conference in 2015 in Zurich. The city of Zurich is easy to reach by plane, train and a network of motorways. No matter which way you choose to come, we will kindly welcome all of you to be our guests.

In 2015 it is exactly 20 years ago that the last IFSCC conference was held in Switzerland. It took place in Montreux at the Lake Léman with a beautiful view to the Alps. We looked back to that conference. Its title FACTS AND ILLUSIONS IN COSMETICS gave us the inspiration for the new scheme in 2015. Time has changed and facts have gained importance with changing legislation for cosmetic products and their ingredients (REACH) and many new developments in the area of analytics and product testing whether in vitro, ex vivo or in vivo.

The new conference title became
More Facts, Less Illusions.

We are convinced that some more illusions will be transferred into facts and that there is much more to come in the future.

The conference venue will be the Conference Center Zurich, nicely located next to the Lake of Zurich with again a beautiful view to the Alps and very close to the attractive city center and the international airport.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Switzerland soon.
