A Voice for Our Members

We are the Society of Cosmetic Scientists Nigeria, and the 50th member of the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC).
The primary aim of the Society is to promote the advancement of science and technology in the cosmetics and personal care industries in Nigeria and the diaspora.
We work by attracting membership among highly qualified individuals with both academic and industrial experience in the field of cosmetics and related sciences. We collaborate with institutions to advance the knowledge as well as through our activities including publications, educational programmes and scientific meetings.
Comprised of experts in the field of cosmetic science, technology and engineering, we provide a voice for our members during the consultation process in the areas that affect our industry. We are the scientific hub for Nigerian cosmetic scientists around the world.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, hence we are governed by our NICOS Council, a group of people appointed to make decisions in the interest of the Society. Council is made up of up to 7 ordinary members of the Society and 5 Officers of the Society who are all elected as Full Members of the Society.
