Beauty executives are gearing up to network and discover some of the most innovative ingredients and products in beauty at this year’s NYSCC (New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists) Suppliers’ Day, a must-attend event for beauty and personal care executives. The two-day tradeshow is taking place from November 10 to November 11 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. Attendees include cosmetic chemists, ingredient executives, R&D professionals, and formulation and marketing experts.
“We are excited to be able to come together for two days of insights, innovations, and networking to help propel the industry forward. The theme of the event is ‘Embracing Beauty,’ and will focus on overcoming challenges and formulating for inclusivity and diversity while inspiring creativity and novel product development,” said Susanna Fernandes, Chair, NYSCC.
