With concerns about labels proliferation in the cosmetics industry, the ethical labels session will give an update on recent developments and give future projections. Details will be given of new labelling schemes, such as Vegan Society, Nordic Swan and Fairtrade. Farhan Tufail from Halal Certification Schemes will highlight the potential of the Halal labelling scheme for cosmetics.

Furthermore, the digital marketing session will look at the influence of mobile technology on the marketing of cosmetic products in the context of sustainability.

The agenda of the European edition of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit reflects the growing complexity of sustainability in the beauty industry. According to the organiser Organic Monitor: brands not only have to consider green ingredients, formulations and labelling schemes, but also packaging impacts, raw material sourcing, carbon and water footprints, as well as the pervasive influence of mobile technology on marketing.
