About the Webinar

Tony O'Lenick delivered this Keynote Lecture at the IFSCC 2022 London Congress on Tuesday 20 September for Session 9A - Science & Technologies behind cutting-edge ingredients.
Overview   There are a number of different approaches available to make raw materials to address different aspects of sustainability. These approaches include source substitution and totally new polymer development. To better understand the substantivity of these new polymer classes O'Lenick will introduce the “BRAG” system used to evaluate new materials to determine their potential improved sustainability and will speculate on their potential use in cosmetic products of the future.

Tony O’Lenick is President of Nascent Technologies Corporation, a product development and consulting company he founded in 1999 to develop raw materials and formulations that have an improved environmental footprint.  Prior to Nascent, Tony was President and Co-founder of Siltech LLC, a specialty silicone company for 31 years. He has also held technical and marketing positions at Alkaril, Henkel Corporation and Mona Industries.  

Tony is the author of seven books, 100 technical articles, and has over 300 patents. He teaches courses in silicone and organic chemistry and has received industry awards including the Samuel Rosen Award (American Oil Chemists’ Society), the Innovative Use of Fatty Acids Award (Soap and Detergents Association), and the Partnership to The Personal Care Award (Advanced Technology Group). Tony was Education Committee Chair of the International Federation of the Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) from 2016 -2020. He received the Maison G. de Navarre Medal Award in 2018 and the Merit Award in 2019 from the Society of Cosmetic Chemists, the Society’s highest accolade. Tony currently serves as a Board Member of the American Oil Chemists Society.
