Discover the world’s most exciting ingredients at in-cosmetics’ virtual conference

Riding on the success of its virtual conference in April, in-cosmetics Global will run another series of free webinars from 27 to 29 May 2020, enabling the personal care industry to learn about the world’s most exciting new ingredients.

Over three days, 14 leading suppliers will take part in a new ‘Ingredients in Action: Live Demo Showcase’, inspired by the Innovation Zone at in-cosmetics Global.

With the Coronavirus pandemic creating somewhat of an information vacuum when it comes to ingredient launches, in-cosmetics’ new series of live demos will help unearth the hidden gems and highlight how each ingredient can used to formulate novel new products.

Drive for innovation

Commenting ahead of the next series of webinars, Roziani Zulkifli, exhibition director for in-cosmetics Global, said: “It has been a difficult few months, but we are continually inspired to see the resilience of the industry. The beauty sector will rebound from the Coronavirus crisis, with McKinsey & Company already predicting that consumers will continue to see many products as affordable luxuries when shops reopen.

“However, a continued drive for innovation remains vital to the success of the personal care industry and as we emerge into the new normal we recognise that R&D teams need more information about the newest ingredients. And what better way to do that than hearing from the suppliers themselves, through a series of free-to-attend live demos.”
