The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) has relaunched its Kosmet database – the only global database populated exclusively with cosmetic science abstracts. The IFSCC is offering free access to Kosmet until 1 November 2018.
Commenting from Seoul, South Korea, IFSCC president, Dr Peter Kang , says: ‘The new Kosmet interface will make the Kosmet cosmetic science database much easier to use. Many scientists told us the old Kosmet interface wasn’t user-friendly – and we listened. We invite all cosmetic scientists to try the new Kosmet today.’
Elevating science in the industry
Thanks to financial support from corporate sponsors Greentech and Pechoin, the IFSCC is able to offer Kosmet on a complimentary basis from now until 1 November 2018. The offer is available to all individual members of IFSCC member societies – over 16 000 cosmetic scientists worldwide.
All 83 000+ abstracts can be searched by anyone. To download an abstract for free the user must register with Kosmet and indicate the cosmetic science society to which they belong.
‘The relaunch of Kosmet is one example of how the IFSCC is trying to bring additional science to more scientists around the world,’ comments Dr Frédéric Leroy, Paris-based chair of the IFSCC Science Committee. ‘In the coming months we will be adding papers and posters presented at IFSCC congresses and conferences, so Kosmet will become an even more valuable resource over time.’
