More than 650 persons (over 100 were physicians) attended the symposium on "Selected Mechanisms of the Skin: Sweating and Pigmentation" held at the Biltmore Hotel, New York City, on May 8, 1963.
The Society of Cosmetic Chemists is the scientific organization of the technical personnel interested in cosmetics. The Society has for a number of years sponsored symposia and seminars (currently three national programs of this type are held annually). This was the first occasion on which one of these programs was cosponsored.
The objective of the symposium was to present current scientific views and recently developed experimental data in the two areas of interest which would be of value to an audience of cosmetic chemists as well as clinical and research oriented dermatologists.
