With exhibitors coming from 15 different countries, mostly from Asia, and a range of products and services covering the entire sector (from ingredients to finish products), there was no shortage in surprises at Cosme Tech and Cosme Tokyo.

Traditional Japanese ingredients

Several brands were showcasing products with ingredients derived from traditional Japanese products.

The Marubishi Soap Company, for instance, has launched a soap containing luxurious sake made from 100% rice alcohol and produced by a long-established sake brewery in Kobe. “Sake is rich in amino acid, which makes the skin smoother and whiter,” claims the company.

As for the skincare line launched by Jozen Mizunogotoshi, a famous sake brand, it uses rice-alcohol fermentation technology to produce its main moisturizing ingredient.

Similarly, Citrus Juno Ltd. has launched Yutsuki, a moisturising cream rich in essential oil of Japan-grown yuzu (a Japanese fruit from the citrus family).

Strong Korean presence

Korean suppliers and brands formed the main overseas participation at Cosme Tech and Cosme Tokyo, with several innovative, or simply original, products.

In order to address the micro-needling skin stimulation trend, DTS MG offers a series of applicators with a dual mechanism that enhances product penetration and stimulates collagen production.

Dermal L&H is using a double fermentation method that has been developed in Korea to produce the ingredients of its newly anti-aging line: Cóem.

To be noted also, the success of snail mucus, a substance well known for its healing properties, among Korean brands such as instance Callicos (Hongwon Costech Co. group), with its Ultra Snail Series, or Elishacoy’s Skin Repairing Snail Cream.

Other innovations of high interest, the new products showcased by Korean brands Beyon and Belif (LG Household & Health Care group). Belif is an apothecary brand proposing products conceived from the herbal recipes and philosophy of Duncan Napier, a botanist and herbalist who opened its first herbal shop and clinic in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1860. Beyond is natural cosmetic brands targeting teenagers and young adults.

Cosme Tech: Ingredients & packaging

As far as packaging was concerned, the offer was less diversified, probably because most of the Japanese leading suppliers were not participating, but the average quality was quite high.

In particular, Honda Plus has showcased a wide and colourful range of packaging with an impressive variety of forms illustrating its know-how and creativity in terms of plastic injection. Katani Sangyo also demonstrated the high precision and quality of its metal leaves for the decoration of plastic boxes.

Korean company S&P World has showcased a wide range of applicators for make-up and skin care, including some notable innovations.

Regarding ingredients several innovative products were showcased. Est Pro, for instance, launched Silk Fibroin, a silk-derived substance that can replace surface-active agents. Or also Bloom Classic Co. that developed ranges based on organic certified seaweeds.

Also not finally, the hyaluronic acid and micro-needles combined offer by Cosmed Pharmaceutical Co.
