We are very excited to announce our Keynote speaker Mr Paul Frasca, Founder & Managing Director of award winning Sustainable Salons Australia the first comprehensive resource recovery service designed for the salon environment that rewards salons and gives back to the community.

We are very proud to introduce the conference IFSCC guest speaker:   Perry Romanowski has spent the past 25 years researching and developing products to solve consumer problems in the personal care and cosmetic industry. His primary focus has been on hair and hair-related products. He is currently vice president of Element 44 Inc which specialized in science education. In 2014, Romanowski created the Practical Cosmetic Formulating online training program to provide cosmetic chemists continuing education across a broad range of formula categories.  Previously, Romanowski worked for Alberto Culver serving as a senior project leader for hair care innovation. He is currently the President of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC). Additionally, he has made appearances on popular TV shows including the Dr. Oz show and the Rachel Ray show.
