In their keynote-presentations, futurologist Prof. Dr. Harald Welzer and Trend Researcher Lola Güldenberg will investigate how the industry and retail can meet the cultural changes impacting the entire cosmetics market and particularly the natural and organic cosmetics market.

The first conference day will centre on the topic of what natural and organic cosmetics customers expect and how they orient themselves. Under the motto out of the box experts, journalists and bloggers will discuss the expected transparency and the safety of natural cosmetics.

On the second conference day, participants will look forward to a prominent panel, which will discuss and establish growth strategies for the natural and organic cosmetics trade.
