The Latest at TRI

Our colleagues in the SCC are running a week-long online education event this month (June 21-25) called “SCC Education Week”. It’s a series of four continuing education courses related to various aspects of cosmetic product development, followed by a cosmetic claims seminar on the final day (plus a fun online networking event afterwards).

Info about SCC Education Week is here: https://members.scconline.org/SCC-Education-Week


Discounts are available for TRI Member Companies (companies listed on this website as member companies). Please contact the SCC for more information.

Barbecues are a famous tradition around the world, very much associated with summertime. Every country has its own particularities when it comes to the cooking process, even between states these differences can be found, but the common factor is gathering friends and/or family together.



Brian Kelly is a TRI member that performs claim support studies. Among his several crucial roles, Brian is a fantastic barbecue chef! In the pictures is possible to see some of his MasterChef skill in the barbecue grill. During summertime before pandemics TRI used to throw barbecues twice a month and gather all TRI Team together outside. Hopefully, these events will become possible again very soon.


Meanwhile we stay wanting to eat these wonderful foods!


TRI wishes all a nice summertime!

The 9th International Conference on Applied Hair Science, which was held on-line from June 7th to June 11th, had 1,007 registrations from hair scientists all around the world. The largest number of registrations ever in the history of this conference.



Feedback from attendees has been very positive, with nearly everybody telling us, in the feedback survey, that they were ‘very satisfied’ with the educational content of the conference. Here are just a few comments we have received,


“It was nice to have a variety of different topics from all areas about hair. Also, it was nice that everything could be watched later as well, with the advantage to pause or go back to get a better understanding”

“High quality presentations! Broad spectrum of topics! Very good - as usual!”

“Digital format enabled participation of non-US participants from companies where travel restrictions would have prevented it normally.”

“The 6-minute oral poster presentations (were a) fantastic opportunity”

“I want to thank the organisers for finding a way to make this happen. Having not attended conferences / exhibitions and met up with less people over the past two years…..this has perked me up again, if you will, and re-lit the fire which excited me to enter this industry in the first place.”

Clearly, a job well done. Congratulations to Trefor Evans, Paul Cornwell, Marcella Gabarra, Ivana Martin, David Graham, and Eleanor Lehman for all the hard work needed to make this magic happen!


For those already registered at the conference, all the presentations can still be streamed from the conference site for the next few weeks (https://cvent.me/lzEmBg). Longer-term, TRI will be editing the material and putting most of it on the TRI Library (https://library.triprinceton.org). Content will start becoming available from 1st October for TRI Library members and TRI member companies.
