Global Skin Care Technologies & Trends

Worry over the health of one’s skin is worldwide. Whether it’s Brazil or any other country, men and women are becoming increasingly more interested in solutions and technologies designed for anti-aging and rejuvenation, reducing oily skin and acne, increased moisturizing and, above all, sunscreen. According to João Carlos Basílio, president of Abihpec, the Brazilian Associations of the Toiletries, Perfume and Cosmetics Industries, the skin care category is the big business area of the sector the world over. “In Brazil it’s the fourth largest market sector, meaning in terms of moisturizing the skin and skin care we have some distance yet to go in awakening the interest of Brazilian women as a whole.” The national sunscreens market is doing fine: it’s more than holding its own, according to the association president. “The US is the leader and Brazil has been the second greatest world market in the world in sunscreens since 2008. Therefore, Brazil is the world leader in sunscreens.”

The industry will have a unique opportunity to see the latest technologies in this segment, presented by companies from different countries at the forthcoming in-cosmetics, the most important international fair in raw materials for the toiletries, fragrance and cosmetics (HPPC) products sector. The event takes place for the first time in Brazil on September 09 – 10 at the World Trade Center in São Paulo.
