IT Awards

This year again, exhibitors had the opportunity to submit their innovations to the Innovation & Trends Awards jury.

According to the jury, the 2024 edition will offer a unique insight into the trends that are redefining the standards of skincare and makeup: the steep rise in the use of environmental-friendly materials, such as recycled plastic in mascaras and cellulose refills for lipsticks; the rise of products focused on transforming uses with proposals such as sticks, grinder cleansers, or even jelly foundations; or ultra-technical formulas merging skincare and makeup; as well as innovative manufacturing techniques and processes.

The four winners — in the formulation, full service, packaging and accessories categories — will be announced on Wednesday May 29 at 10:30 a.m. at the awards ceremony.

Overview of beauty trends

To meet visitors’ expectations, the organizers are renewing and enriching the MakeUp in Paris trends area by hosting three new agencies: Spate, Nielsen IQ and Labelchic. Their presence will complement the insights and perspectives offered by Nelly Rodi, Peclers Paris, Beautystreams, Cosmetics Inspiration et Creation, La French Company, Dynvibe, In Trend, WeOutWow, and Asia Cosmelab.

Through a series of workshops and conferences, brands will have the opportunity to explore hot topics such as the skinification of makeup, the transformative impact of science on beauty, the evolution of online beauty, eco-responsibility in the creation of cosmetic products, and the changing aspirations of consumers in terms of beauty and well-being.

Conscious Beauty Area

In response to the quest for sustainability in the cosmetics industry, the organizers of MakeUp in Paris are launching the Conscious Beauty Area, a dedicated area that was acclaimed during the Los Angeles edition in February.

This immersive experience will be structured around three product families — Natural and Renewable Raw Materials, Ecodesign, and Green Chemistry — highlighting renowned exhibitors such as: Keminova Italiana SB, GNG Group, Geka, Chromavis, Tair Jiuh, or even Taiki.
