Farewell Letter from the Chair

W

…Susanna Fernandes

hat a ride! Admittedly, I started the year with trepidation, as we were still in lock-down. Although the NYSCC chapter was on solid ground with its virtual and on-demand programming, I still had no idea what the year ahead would bring in terms of keeping our members informed and engaged, especially with the prospect of hosting inperson events. Thankfully, due to the hard work and dedication of our fellow scientists, COVID vaccinations were approved and administered throughout the country and around the world. Slowly, the world started to re-open and the NYSCC was there with open arms! Our first in-person event was the Golf Outing, followed by a full day program on “Skin, Hygiene, and Microbiome” and a NYSCC chapter favorite, Culinary Night, which were all held with great success. Of course, bringing the industry together for our main event—Suppliers’ Day held on November 10th-11th at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center—is an accomplishment that I will never forget. It was such a thrill to see everyone (even international colleagues and peers) and bring this year’s theme, “Embracing Beauty,” safely to life. Speaking of Embracing Beauty, there were so many programs that underscored this theme including “Formulating for Inclusion,” “Celebrating Women in Science,” and the enlightening webinar: “NYSCC Proudly Embraces LGBTQ + Beauty.” More highlights include the launch of the NYSCC podcast – The Science Behind the Art. Maria Sousa and her co-hosts did an outstanding and entertaining job. I was honored to be a CEW Ambassador for their Beauty Creators Award. It was a privilege to discuss innovations and trends in ingredients and their importance in product and brand development. Enhancing our programs for those just entering cosmetic chemistry was also a fulfilled passion of mine. Our Mentorship Committee worked hard to advance our members’ personal and professional growth. There also wasn’t a dry eye in the house at the Education and Awards Night Ceremony during Suppliers’ Day. The program was more intimate than past events with an elegant sit-down dinner at HK Hall along with the moving presentation of “The Roumelia Alina Inclusion and Diversity Scholarship” in honor of our past secretary and beloved member of the Chapter. Serving as Chair this year has been such a rewarding and gratifying experience. I have made incredible friendships and have grown so much personally and professionally. However, I could have not have done any of this on my own. Many people who were my guiding lights and support systems including my incredible executive board, Giorgio Dell’Acqua, Mohamed Abdulla, Leor Fay Tal, and Giorgino Macalino—my predecessor, trusted advisor, and friend. I also cannot thank enough our amazing program and committee chairs who went above and beyond to place the NYSCC at the forefront of the cosmetic industry. To close out my final chair letter, I want to send sincere appreciation to all our members whose support and enthusiasm of this Chapter has kept us afloat and vibrant throughout another challenging year. I wish you peace, health, and happiness this holiday season. I look forward to a bright New Year!

Letter from the 2022 Chair

…Giorgio Dell’Acqua

hank you, NYSCC members, for the honor of being your incoming Chair for 2022. I have been involved in this dynamic industry for more than 20 years and proudly spearheaded the Chapter’s Scientific Advisory Committee and blog. Next year, you will see science and sustainability as centerpieces to many of the Chapter’s activities and programs. Much gratitude to Susanna Fernandes, my predecessor, for leading the NYSCC to new heights in programming, engagement, and after two years, the successful return of our in-person Suppliers’ Day event. Read all about these accomplishments in her farewell letter and throughout this special issue of Cosmetiscope. With the help and guidance of the new board members—Alex Blakeman, Luciana Coutinho, and Stacey House—along with Mohamed Abdulla and of course Susanna, we will continue this Chapter’s legacy of focusing on education in cosmetic science and elevating the role of the chemists. I am also looking forward to working with our dedicated program and committee chairs in offering unique content and experiences that will resonate with the beauty and personal care community. I plan to collaborate with more organizations and associations instrumental in fostering, promoting, and growing the Chapter’s mission. And, we will continue the upward trajectory of supporting and mentoring young professionals in our industry and look forward to creating new programs to achieve this goal. Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season and happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. Cheers to a promising 2022!

T

he beauty and personal care product development community was reunited November 10th and 11th for one of the most important Suppliers’ Day events in its history. More than 6,800 registrants, eager to find solutions to current challenges, met with over 380 exhibitors across 75,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The engagement continued with Suppliers’ Day “Virtual Month of Beauty” capturing new registrants and views since its kick-off on November 12th. “Exhibitors and attendees alike were energized by the look, feel, and size of the show as well as the number of people who attended—and most importantly with the high quality of attendees who were present,” said Susanna Fernandes, Chair, NYSCC. “Every inch of the show reverberated our theme of Embracing Beauty and Celebrating What We Create!” Noteworthy were the international participants, from 30 countries including Australia, France, Italy, United Kingdom, as well as from countries in Africa, Asia, and South America, who were able to attend as the travel restrictions were beginning to be lifted in November.

“NYSCC Suppliers' Day delivered on its promise of producing a high-quality face-to-face event for the industry despite the many obstacles and travel restrictions still in place due to the global pandemic. Our engagement with attendees and leads from the event exceeded our expectations. We were able to have meaningful and non-rushed conversations with our customers and new prospects. The event and awards night ceremony provided a safe environment for us to get back to business and network. We are really looking forward to Suppliers’ Day in May of 2022,” said Marie Thadal, Business Development Executive – Americas, Coptis Inc. A highlight of Suppliers’ Day was the debut of the INDIE360° Program, an immersive educational and 8

sourcing experience providing up and coming indie brands with the insight, information, and resources needed to succeed. It featured a half-day conference that included lively panel discussions with leading founders and an INDIE Pavilion that spotlighted newer to market companies who are utilizing unique ingredients and formulations. The INDIE360° program was moderated and chaired by Luciana Coutinho, Luluble, with panels and pavilion participants curated by Daniela Ciocan, Access Beauty Insiders. Suppliers’ Day also boasted standingroom only Presentation Theater sessions that included tracks focused on green beauty, sustainability, certification (Discover Sustainability), and the global beauty marketplace (The World of Chemistry). Kicking off the show was a ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured NYSCC and SCC leaders of today and tomorrow, as well as executives who were instrumental in ensuring a safe and successful live Suppliers’ Day in New York City. “As President of the SCC it was a thrill for me to witness and be a part of Suppliers’ Day taking place live at the Javits Center. The energy and buzz in the exhibit hall were exhilarating and underscore how important in-person events are for discovering new innovations and business-building,” said Liz Streland, 2021 National President, SCC and Senior Account Manager, Nagase Specialty Materials. “As an exhibitor, we were very pleased with the depth of conversations that we had with attendees and the leads generated from the event.” The Future Chemists Workshop hosted dozens of college students from Rutgers, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Long Island University, University of Miami Health Systems, Montclair State University, Fashion Institute of Technology, and The University of Toledo who competed in mini-challenges for the best formulation. The NYSCC Mentorship Committee hosted a Breakfast Mixer and Information Session with the launch of a robust Mentor/Mentee Database. The Digital Age of Beauty returned with presentations on trends, predictive analytics, modeling, and a look at the “digital” buying process as did Fragrance: The Invisible Art with all the essential players

The inaugural People’s Choice Award winner was Skin Moderne, a brand that has been relentless in the pursuit of clean, effective skincare and technology. “Skin Moderne is dedicated to fostering a culture of innovation for skin wellness. We continuously probe, search, experiment, and craft new ways to improve our ingredients, technologies, and skincare products,” said Richard Purvis, CEO of Skin Moderne, who was present at the champagne reception to accept the NYSCC Suppliers’ Day People’s Choice Award. Plans are already underway for 2022 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, which is returning to its traditional timeframe of May 3rd-4th, again at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, with more than 70% of exhibitors already re-signed. “The show floor for Suppliers’ Day 2022 will be as large as our expanded area in 2019. The NYSCC will also strengthen its industry and media partnerships and continue to work closely with its members and the SCC to create the best global ingredients event for the industry, by the industry,” said Giorgio Dell’Acqua, Chair-Elect, NYSCC. “Next year, the latest in cosmetic science and sustainability will be core focuses of the Chapter.” For more information visit www.nyscc.org/suppliers-day.
