The Latin American Congress of Cosmetic Chemistry
COLAMIQC, the Latin American Congress of Cosmetic Chemicals, is an event aimed at professionals and students in the cosmetic chemical field, where magistrates are held, as well as presentations of scientific works - oral and in need - from the industry and studies in Latin America. . Held every two years and with the support of the International Federation of Cosmetic Chemical Societies (IFSCC), the event grows with each edition, as does the Latin American market.
The first COLAMIQC was held in November 1973, in the city of Buenos Aires. It was the beginning of a process of exchanging technological experiences. The newly formed ABC was present and promised to organize the next event, which took place between November 17 and 19, 1975, at the Anhembi Convention Center, São Paulo.
The III COLAMIQC had its headquarters in the city of Lima, in Peru and with it the integration of Spain and Portugal into the group, due to historical ties. The editions were followed by Viña del Mar, a "Garden City", in Chile, Acapulco (Mexico) and Cartagena (Colombia).
In 1985, Brazil hosted the VII edition of the event, this time in Rio de Janeiro and again organized by ABC. In the following years, the event was organized by Guayaquil (Ecuador), Santiago (Chile) and Caracas (Venezuela).
The XI COLAMIQC had as its theme "Science and Cosmetic Industry - the challenge of integration" and represents a historical milestone, since it was the last before the formal integration of MERCOSUR.
