Encouraging a
new generation
entering the
dynamic field of
cosmetic science

A COSMETIC SCIENTIST KNOWS that
"playtime" refers to the time it
takes for a cosmetic product to
absorb or be distributed on your
skin, and that "payoff" is how
intense the colour of a product
transfers in one stroke. The
Ontario Chapter of the Society
of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) has
collaborated with Seneca to support Cosmetic Science students
who understand these terms
and can speak their language.
"We want to encourage people to come into the cosmetic
science industry. When we
were asked to help out, we
jumped in with both feet," says
Dennis Zuccolin, SCC Academic Liaison and Fellow, Product Safety at Estée Lauder
Companies. "It is a natural fit.
A win-win."
The Ontario SCC, part of the
National Society of Cosmetic
Chemists, brings together cosmetic professionals with a mission to further education and
foster research for chemists,
buyers and marketers. Chair

Dorothy Maraprossians (Business Manager, Personal Care
at Azelis Canada), Zuccolin and
other SCC members sit on the
Cosmetic Science program's
advisory committee and were
instrumental in launching the
only graduate certificate program of its kind in Ontario."
"When Seneca said they had
laboratory facilities, I knew it
would work. Students could
see what they were doing and
not just learn in the classroom,"
Zuccolin says. "There are
a unique set of skills that you
need to put together to go
forward with cosmetic product
development."
Seneca's Cosmetic Science
program teaches the art, science
and business principles for
the development of cosmetic
products. This program emphasizes chemistry concepts and

strategies from raw materials
to finished products. Graduates
go on to careers in cosmetic
formulation chemistry, research
and development chemistry,
quality assurance or regulatory
affairs.
In 2016, Ontario SCC established the Society of Cosmetic
Chemists Award for students in
the Cosmetic Science program.
Recipients must demonstrate
creativity, collaboration and
teamwork in the lab and have a
high GPA. Recently, the Ontario
SCC expanded their support
with a new bursary in the
School of Biological Sciences
and Applied Chemistry for
students who use counselling
and accessibility services.
"Cosmetic science isn't all
about the grades, it's about the
intangibles - creativity,
resilience and teamwork,"

Maraprossians says. "Seneca
students are versatile and eager
and are well prepared for the
complexity of the field."
Their support does not end
there. Both Maraprossians and
Zuccolin have hired students
for their work terms and have
taken part in the program's capstone project.
"With our gift, we are hoping
that people will stay in the
industry, become SCC members,
pay it forward and mentor new
students," Zuccolin says. "They
have a unique perspective."
"Seeing the students succeed
is really rewarding. It really
comes full circle," adds Maraprossians.
