“Effectiveness Through Targeting:
Using Delivery Systems in Cosmetic Products” -
In the search to meet consumer
demand for effective anti-aging products, formulators are increasingly
adopting solutions that leverage ingredient delivery technologies. Such
technologies can enhance the effectiveness of an active by better
controlling its trajectory once applied to the skin or hair as well as by
improving other qualities such as stability or solubility.

“The sub-alpha phase of monoglyceride-water gels and its
potential effects on gel stability”
Fan Wang and Alejandro Marangoni Department of Food Science, University of
Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
While characterizing the phase behaviour and stability of saturated distilled
monoglyceride-water gels, a phase transition was observed at ~13°C. The nature
of this thermal transition in 20% (w/w) glyceryl monostearate:sodium stearoyl
lactylate (GMS:SSL, 19:1) in water (MGgel) was studied by differential scanning
calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) . Simultaneous powder XRD-DSC was
used to characterize the crystalline structure of the MG-gel in the temperature
range 1 to 75 °C. GMS sub-alpha XRD patterns were observed below 13°C. The
long-term stability of the sub-alpha phase of the MG gel system was also
investigated, which was less than one month at 5, 25 and 45°C. Results showed
thick layer of nanostructured water in the sub-alpha phase. Such water layers
may contribute to the high water swelling capacity and gel stability of
monoglyceride gels at refrigeration temperatures.
How to get the most out of a cosmetic industry
meeting or trade show by Perry Romanowski
As a cosmetic chemist you are presented
with ample opportunities to go to trade shows. It seems there is some kind of
meeting going on every month. Trade shows and industry meetings are a great
chance to meet lots of people, learn during excellent talks, socialize and even
meet cosmetic science celebrities. When done right they are a lot of fun.

A Farewell Message from the
My term as the Chair for 2013 has come
to an end. The year has gone by so quickly, it is hard to believe it is over. We
had a really busy year in 2013. We started the year off with an evening meeting
in February. We enjoyed Julia Hernandez’s presentation on the Hair Care market.
During the Cocktail hour we also had poster presentations given by our 2012
scholarship honoree Cendy Wang on“Petroleum-Free Structured Emulsion for
Cosmetic Applications”. In March, we hosted a full day event education day
instructed by Randy Wickett on the topic of “Advanced Skin Science”. We were
able to offer this course free of charge to all SCC members.
The spring closed off with an evening meeting in May, at which Perry Romanowski
spoke on Skepticism and the Cosmetic Chemists. In July we had our 13th annual
golf tournament which took place in Caledon Woods Golf Club. We had a wonderful
turnout with 115 attendees! Special thanks go out to Gagan Jain and Craig
Broijer for their time and effort in organizing this grand event. And also we
thank our good friend Wayne Fretz who took a great series of pictures at the
