Coschem Creativity Award presented to Surinamese diplomat                              

The Society of Cosmetic Chemists in South Africa, known by the name Coschem, annually honours those students who excel overall or in certain disciplines, with Special Awards (Top Module 1 and 2 students Awards and the Creativity Award). This annual event takes place in close collaboration with the Cosmetic Industry.

Coschem is the professional society for scientists in the Cosmetic Industry in South Africa, based in Johannesburg. The society is affiliated with the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC).  Its main goal is to promote the advancement of science and technology in the cosmetic and toiletries industry as well as to promote high ethical standards of cosmetic science.

This year’s Prize giving Dinner was held on 08 February 2017.

The Surinamese diplomat, Ms. Stephanie Gompel, is amongst the graduates who successfully completed the 2016 DIPLOMA IN COSMETIC SCIENCE. She was also extremely honoured to be presented with the CREATIVITY AWARD 2016, which is awarded to students for the most creative Module 2 Presentation. This presentation includes, but is not limited to, a clear conception of the subject at hand as well as exceptional verbal and non-verbal communication skills, supported by high quality visual aids, which will therefor result in a presentation of very high standards according to its requirements.

The above requirements were explicitly implemented by Ms. Gompel in the development of a Gentle Conditioning Baby Shampoo with the advent of new technology, whereby specific emphasis was placed on the Formulation Development, Packaging and Production, and Quality Management. This time-framed Product Development was onerous on even the most diligent of students. Perseverance, determination and love for the beauty industry played a pivotal role in the development of this product, (NuLIFE®Teddy Time Gentle Conditioning Shampoo).

It is therefore with pride and gratitude that a sample of this product was presented to the First Lady of the Republic of Suriname, Mrs Ingrid Bouterse-Waldring, who greatly welcomed this achievement.

Stephanie graduated in 2014 from the University of South Africa (UNISA) with a BSc degree in Biochemistry & Microbiology and commenced with her studies at Coschem in the same year. On the basis of her experiences in the beauty industry, she chose the course of Cosmetic Science. Stephanie is known to be a master nail technician, but her love for the beauty industry started at a very young age. At the age of 14 she became a certified nail stylist.

Stephanie is extremely proud and grateful for successfully completing her study at Coschem and being honoured with the Creativity Award. This is indeed recognition of her personal accomplishments and efforts.

She gives thanks to her family for their invaluable support throughout her studies. Stephanie is the daughter of the proud parents Eric Drielinger and Lucil Drielinger – Fernandes and sister to Terence Gompel.

Lucil Drielinger – Fernandes is the First Secretary at the Embassy of the Republic of Suriname in Pretoria.

The completion of her study and special recognition has encouraged Stephanie to continue her passion for cosmetic research and pursue her dream to eventually develop her own cosmetic line.

Congratulations to Stephanie and we wish her all the best with her future endeavours.
