In addition to focusing on our customers, we will also increasingly focus on consumers in the future," said Espinosa. “The cosmetics market is changing noticeably at the moment, and topics such as sustainability and mindfulness are becoming increasingly important – which of course also shift our customers’ needs. We are reacting to this development with creative solutions and want to prove that sustainability and product excellence are not mutually exclusive,” he added.
