ASCC 2020 Conference 

If you are a raw material supplier, finished product manufacturer, brand owner or in any other related discipline (such as packaging, marketing or IP protection), the ASCC Conference is an excellent opportunity to highlight new exciting technologies and research, showcase the latest market trends and provide a hands on experience that people will be talking about well after the event. In the last few years the ASCC Conference has continued to grow and attract a diverse range of delegates, all with a link to the Personal Care Industry, both in Australia and Internationally.

Announcing Travis Badenhorst and Jess Van Zeil as our Plenary speakers!

Travis is the President of the NZSCC, NZCRS committee member and is the Chief Scientist and Global R&D leader for Snowberry. Travis obtained a BPharm from the University of Otago before working as a pharmacist for a number of years. He then completed a MHSc and PhD at the University of Auckland whilst working in the skincare industry. He has over a decade worth of experience in the field, multiple published international papers, often presents at conferences such as the NZSCC and World Congress of Dermatology, and is now a regular to the ASCC.

Jess Van Zeil is an eye patch wearing, 26 year old business owner, best-selling author and resilience expert. She has faced a multitude of challenges in her life, including being diagnosed with cancer when she was 22. As a result, she’s learned a lot about resilience and the art of bouncing back!

Jess realised she didn’t want anyone to face life’s challenges unarmed. The art and science of building resilience has become her passion.

Jess developed the PATCH system which will give you the skills and tools to grow and thrive when faced with change. She has shared her story and the PATCH methodology on stages across Australia including the NAC in 2018 alongside Tony Robbins, Turia Pitt, Michelle Bridges and Naomi Simson. In 2019 Jess’ book “Eye Won” was published internationally.
