Welcome Letter

Dear Permanent Cosmetic Professional

Thank you for your interest in the Permanent Cosmetic Association of South Africa (PCASA). The PCASA (a chapter of the SPCP) is a sound, non-profit South African professional association owned, operated, and controlled by its members and started in October 2011. The SPCP (Society for Permanent Cosmetics Professionals), is also a non-profit association, has laid down all the guidelines and structure for PCASA. The growth experienced in the SPCP since inception in 1990 is a direct result of its professional and legal structure, compliant with state and federal laws governing non-profit organizations. The Board Members of PCASA are represented by a diverse group elected by the members, serving limited terms. The PCASA is governed by a Code of Ethics that all members must abide to in order to set high standards in this industry. One of the main aims of PCASA is to create public awareness on the do’s and dont’s of this beautiful industry. Soon, the general public will look to our association as the voice of the industry.
