Sicc is a "no-profit" association, founded in 1958, that groups the professionals from the Italian cosmetic world, with the aim of give credit and visibility to the figure of the cosmetologist and the cosmetic science.
It is a multi disciplinary group that pursues its statutory goals through meetings and educational events amongst cosmetologists and dermatologists, marketing experts, researchers, pharmacists, company experts, schools and University.

Sicc counts more than 400 associates and was a founder and now an active part of the IFSCC (International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists) IFSCC, the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists is a worldwide federation dedicated to international cooperation in cosmetic science and technology.
Interest in the formation of such an organisation crystallized in Paris in 1956 and culminated in the birth of the federation in Brussels, Belgium on September 8, 1959.

At that time there were only 8 countries entering the Federation. Today, 48 Societies representing 64 countries have met the high standards of scientific and educational qualifications of the IFSCC and, as members, support the organization's aims and programs. The number of individual members in the Federation now exceeds 15,000 and are still growing.
