The event, which gathered 909 exhibitors and welcomed 10,799 unique visitors from across 118 countries, last year in Barcelona, is returning to Paris with the aim to break new records.

The line-up of the 2024 edition will once again feature leading personal care ingredient suppliers, including Ashland, BASF, Clariant, Evonik, Lubrizol and Symrise. An array of country-specific pavilions will also be at the event, with a host of suppliers from France, UK, Spain, Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia, Peru, and China.

From the highly popular Marketing Trends presentations and sessions (with speeches from Euromonitor International, Kline & Co, Beautystreams, Ecovia Intelligence and Reach24h…) and the newly expanded Sustainability Zone (featuring over 190 products – all of which are new or have been launched within the past six months), to Technical Seminars and interactive Formulation Lab, the 2024 edition is expected to provide even more opportunities to explore the latest industry trends and opportunities in product development.

With France’s flair and influence on the global industry, the 2024 edition will be a pivotal moment for the beauty community to take note of the cutting-edge trends and foster direct connections with the very experts shaping the future of personal care ingredients," said Roziani Zulkifli, Event Director, in-cosmetics Global.
