Colipa changes name to Cosmetics Europe

The European Cosmetics Association, formerly named “Colipa” (an acronym initially standing for “Comité de liaison de la parfumerie”), will now be called “Cosmetics Europe - The Personal Care Association”.

At the same time, the association, which has been representing the European cosmetic industry for fifty years, is also adopting a new logo and visual identity and launching a new website:

The European cosmetics industry is the flagship of the cosmetics industry worldwide. This year our trade association celebrates half a century of working together for our industry. The change of name to ‘Cosmetics Europe – The Personal Care Association’ reflects the importance of this dynamic industry globally,” said Director-General of Cosmetics Europe, Bertil Heerink.

The changes come at a time when the European cosmetics industry, which represents one-third of the global market, is facing several challenges with the shift to a new regulation and the implementation of a final ban on animal testing. Earlier this month, the European Commission opened the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal, the online notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on cosmetic products, which will come into force on July 2013.

The European cosmetics industry employs a total of 1.7 million people either directly or indirectly, including about 17,000 scientists. “Cosmetics Europe – The Personal Care Association” works with 18 multinational companies, 27 national associations and 4000 SMEs.

Just like fashion that is eternally being reinvented, perfumery also works in cycles. And the floral accord is no exception. The very essence of femininity, today floral fragrances are less invasive than in the 1980s, as was the case with Poison by Christian Dior.
