The annual International Phytocosmetic and Phytotherapy Congress (IPPC) is the marquee event of Phytoessences.org, subsidiary of International Society of Phytocosmetic Science (ISPS). ISPS is a non-profit, worldwide professional society comprised of individuals and institutions engaged in the science of using plant based ingredients in the production of cosmetics and personal care products.
The International Society for Phytocosmetic Science was initiated in 2013, and nowadays its membership comprise of scientists and industry experts from more than twenty one countries. In 2014, our membership requested an official publication for the society in form of an Open-access, peer review with potential for indexing at various agencies. Accordingly, society has established the International Journal of Phytocosmetics and Natural Ingredients (IJPNI) that published abstracts and manuscripts from our events in addition to a number of manuscript submitted from elsewhere.
