Looking for THE place to be for the latest in cosmetic ingredient and product innovations in the personal care industry? Want to build connections with cosmetic raw material suppliers, manufacturers, agents and experts? The ASCC Conference is THE place to be.

In 2022, our 54th Annual Conference will be held in Adelaide, 10-12th May.

The 2022 conference is all about celebrating women in personal care: their contributions as chemists and creators, innovators and suppliers, and most of all, the driving force behind inspirational beauty trends that propel our very exciting industry forward – both from within the industry and as consumers.

Women have always been the largest users of personal care and cosmetics; and over recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in women joining R&D teams, founding and running cosmetic companies, and taking the lead on growing diversity and performance in product creation. The women that are demanding more from their personal care as consumers are increasingly becoming the voice of scientific creation… we’re shattering that glass ceiling!

We’ll also be celebrating the changing face of beauty: what is beautiful? Together we will redefine beauty, a definition that is built on diversity, equity and inclusion. It knows no bounds and allows us to explore new and exciting products for all.

With a host of educational opportunities, networking events, more supplier booths than ever before, poster and innovation zones, come be inspired and find out the latest industry launches and developments.

Join us as we shatter that glass ceiling, celebrate women in our industry and redefine beauty for all!
