Mary Kay Inc. recently unveiled its findings on sunscreen viscosity at the 2019 Sunscreen Symposium presented by the Florida chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
A global beauty company and leader in skincare innovation, Mary Kay continued its decades-long commitment to skin science research as a sponsor of the event, which was held Sept. 12–14 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The symposium brought together hundreds of cosmetic industry professionals to highlight leading scientific developments globally and provide updates on current regulations.
Mary Kay presented findings on research experiments that demonstrated how sunscreen viscosity, a property that effects application to skin, can be adjusted using processing parameters.
“The use of sunscreens in daily wear products—such as moisturizers—make it critical for us to constantly develop sun care products that exceed our customer’s aesthetic expectations,” said Dr. Lucy Gildea, chief scientific officer at Mary Kay Inc. “Mary Kay’s research and development team is committed to developing leading-edge technology and we’re proud to share our latest findings on ways to develop sun care products with improved ease of application and proper coverage.”
The Florida chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) is one of 19 chapters nationwide. Mary Kay’s sponsorship of the 2019 Sunscreen Symposium marks the latest in a series of partnerships between the global beauty brand and the scientific and academic communities.
“Participating in events like the 2019 Sunscreen Symposium, as both a sponsor and presenter, allows us to learn and share relevant, cutting-edge skin science research,” said Dr. Gildea. “Innovation is in the DNA of our company and we are dedicated to discovering the trends and technologies that enable us to create irresistible products for our independent sales force and ultimately, for our Mary Kay brand lovers worldwide.”
