CCUK is an association for everyone in the cosmetics industry supply chain and we are able to act as a bridge between the industry and different sectors, such as academia and the bioeconomy, allowing knowledge to flow along the value chain. This has been demonstrated this month by two activities connected to the Research & Innovation pillar, led by Dr Katerina Steventon (NBIC) and Dr Gill Westgate (University of Bradford). We are also delighted to announce the call for entries in an ‘Innovation in Action Technology Showcase Challenge’ session to be co-hosted with the organisers at IFSCC 2022 in London in September. Read all about these activities later in this newsletter.


April has been a busy time with trade shows and exhibitions and in person meetings in full swing and finally happening at last! All being well it looks like this will be set to continue as the year goes forward and we hope to see you at an upcoming event soon and we will also plan to hold in person networking events for our members the first time. See the Events diary for more details of where we will be and what we are planning. However, our thoughts are very much with those whose lives are still impacted by Covid-19 and the recent distressing developments in Ukraine. On a happier note, we wish Her Majesty the Queen all the best for her recent 96th birthday and for the forthcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations.


This month we celebrate the arrival of Spring with the announcement that Dr Katerina Steventon(Independent Skincare Consultancy) is joining CCUK as a Director. After working with her on a successful series of webinars in her role at NBIC, most recently on March 29, we are delighted to welcome Katerina to lead the Research & Innovation pillar at CCUK.

This month we say goodbye to Lisa Buck, who has made the difficult decision to stand down as a Director of CCUK. Lisa was one of the founders of CCUK and before that was a founder of the successful chemical process industries membership organisation, YCF Ltd.
