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.
