The last edition of in-cosmetics Global, the leading cosmetics and personal care ingredients show, which was held in Paris from April 2nd to 4th, 2019, welcomed more than 12,000 visitors through its doors (compared to 9,392 last year in Amsterdam and to 9,726 the last time the show was held in Paris in 2016), announced the organizers.
During the event, the Global Beauty Day hosted three special round-table discussions that brought together industry professionals for open discussions on Lifestyle Choices - such as vegan, halal, all-natural and environmentally-friendly; LGBTQ+ identity, exploring beyond the gender boundaries; and Skin Types & Colours. Each conversation explored the way consumer choices are influencing the development of cosmetic products from the ingredients used to the marketing stories told. A diverse mix of industry experts joined forces to discuss these impacting factors, from Jessica Blackler, Founder and Managing Director of unisex beauty brand Jecca Blac; sustainable brand Beauty Kitchen; Rob Forgione and Denis Kovalyov, Co-founders of My. Haircare, the cruelty-free, vegan haircare range; and Chantal Amalric, Beauty Care Strategic Marketing Manager at SEPPIC - Air Liquide Healthcare Specialty Ingredients. The trends in each of the three areas were brought to the discussion by Mintel, Peclers Paris and GlobalData.
Other popular events such as the Indie Trail, the R&D Tours, the Innovation zone, the Sustainability Corner, The Make-Up Bar and the Formulation Lab, also returned this year.
The 2020 edition of show will run from 31 March to 2 April in Barcelona next year.
