The world’s leading event for personal care ingredients has announced this year’s line-up for its popular Marketing Trends Theatre, Technical Seminars, Formulation Lab, and Sustainability Zone.
14 March 2023: Ahead of what is set to be the biggest event on record, the organisers of in-cosmetics Global have announced the full line-up of this year’s packed conference programme. Spanning the Marketing Trends Theatre, Technical Seminars, Sustainability Zone and Formulation Lab, attendees will be presented with a wealth of information and leave inspired by the industry’s most influential experts.
Throughout the three-day show, the in-cosmetics Global Marketing Trends Theatre will host speakers from Euromonitor, Mintel, Kline, Beauty Kitchen and Ecovia, to provide attendees with the latest market intelligence. Speakers will also explore topics such as the skin virome, the growing demand for uplifting claims, fragrance innovation, driving sustainable performance and the ageing well movement.
Attendees can also learn about carbon negative skincare, an in-depth interpretation of CSAR and regulatory trends in China, how technology is transforming the beauty industry and circular business growth and beauty practices in 2023. With 23 market-leading presentations and panel discussions, the Marketing Trends Theatre is a must-attend for those visiting this year’s event.
Technical Seminars lead on multifunctional ingredients
Meanwhile, Technical Seminars will return with representatives from Lubrizol Life Science Beauty, CLARIANT and Cargill among those confirmed to deliver unique insights into the latest personal care ingredients, technology and formulation techniques.
More than 90 free technical seminars will be held over the course of the three days, delivered by raw material suppliers. They will touch upon a range of topics including anti-ageing, UV protection, sustainability and more.
Eight sessions will cover multifunctional ingredients, as the less-is-more attitude to personal care continues to gain popularity. Here, fermentation, performance testing and multifunctional bioactives will be among the hotly anticipated topics covered, with representatives from THOR, Active Micro Technologies and bitop headlining the line-up.
Anti-ageing will also be a popular topic, with the likes of Provital demonstrating how to combine nature and science in a novel approach to well-ageing. SILAB will also address anti-ageing with a focus on the role of the immunosenescence process, while Incospharm tackles senescent cells.
Putting Sustainability First
With the focus of this year’s show strongly on sustainability, the new Sustainability Zone, sponsored by AAK, will welcome expert keynote speakers and ingredient suppliers to discuss the latest advancements and achievements in sustainable beauty.
More than 30 sessions will help attendees understand how the industry is working towards more radically sustainable practices. From the eco-design of cosmetic ingredients and how to connect with the eco-conscious shopper, to the decarbonisation of raw material supply chains and leveraging bioscience and green chemistry, the 2023 programme will challenge and inspire attendees to see the science of sustainable beauty.
Hands-on in the Formulation Lab
For R&D professionals at in-cosmetics Global, the popular Formulation Lab, sponsored by Brenntag, provides an unmissable, hands-on experience. Pre-registration is required to join one of 24 exclusive sessions, such as ‘Modern formulations based on sustainable ingredients’ delivered by Evonik, and ‘Formulating cold process crème gels using oleosomes’ with Azelis. Fellow ingredient suppliers, Clariant, Lubrizol Life Science, Symrise, Provital, Dow and more will also deliver exclusive sessions at this year’s event.
Roziani Zulkifli, Exhibitions Director at in-cosmetics Global, said: “This year’s education programme will focus on the most-talked about trends and topics impacting the industry today. Our carefully curated line-up represents the depth and breadth of the cosmetic and personal care industry, and the challenges it faces within our changing consumer and environmental climate.
