Hair styles, and colors, are symbolic and iconic statements made throughout history.

May Meeting ReviewWe had a busy May Chapter meeting at the Venetian. We started the evening with Paola Battiston from Seneca who updated us all on the recently launched Cosmetic Science Graduate Certificate program at Seneca.We were then fortunate to have SCC Ontario scholarship winner Katerina Juskey give a brief presentation on Colour Cosmetic Trends and Claims Market Research. Katerina graduated with a Master of Science and Technology majoring in Fragrance and Cosmetics from (UVSQ/ISIPCA) in Versailles, France as well as a Masters in Business and Management (MBM) from the University of Padua, Italy in December 2015.Together, the two competencies make up the European and Fragrance Cosmetic Master program, which she completed with 19 other international students. She was required to fulfill a 6-month internship to graduate from this program, which she completed at Estee Lauder in the R&D Anhydrous Lip Group last year in Markham, and she is now a Chemist with the R&D Outside Vendor Team.Finally our featured speaker was Saina Taida gave a detailed presentation on “Biotechnology and Cosmetics”.What is a “good” bio-functional active? How are biotech based actives used in cosmetics measured? How realistic is the molecular biology data and to what extend can we rely on them for beauty claims? Saina talked about some commonly used biotechnology techniques and tools that could be used in the cosmetic sciences area of knowledge as well addressed challenges in getting the right information from numerous available studies in biotech sector for cosmetic related businesses.
