She explained that the Asia awards are unique in that they will honor one new raw material and one new finished product launched specifically for the Asian market. In contrast, the awards presented in Europe will maintain their international focus.

Suppliers scheduled to exhibit include BASF (Hong Kong), Bronson & Jacobs (Thailand), Croda (Singapore), DSM (Singapore) and Evonik (Germany), all of which exhibited previously. In addition, first-time exhibitors include Emery Oleochemicals (Malaysia), Natural Sourcing (USA) and Toyo Sugar Refining Co. Ltd (Japan).

Visitors who register for the show, held in Bangkok, before October 29 will receive a number of benefits, including free fast-track entry to the exhibition as well as a $30 discount off all educational workshops.

A dedicated half-day Regulations Workshop at in-cosmetics Asia will aim to guide manufacturers through the most recent developments and how they will be affected, both now and in the future. Annelie Struessman, PhD, technical director of CONUSBAT, will lead the first session, titled, "EU: Preparation for the Regulation Implementation." This will provide visitors with technical information on the regulations that are set to replace the European Cosmetic Directive in 2013. 

Wendell Wei of China Gate will assist manufacturers at staying on top of the Chinese cosmetics market, as he hosts "China Focus: What is New?" Considering the key hurdles in registering products, Wei’s session will detail requirements for registration, the regulatory agencies involved and their responsibilities–as well as what to expect from upcoming changes.Confusion continues to reign over the latest Asian regulations ,and Alain Khaiat, PhD, of Seers Consulting will address this in "ASEAN–Korea: Overview of Changes." Khaiat’s session will be supported by a presentation from Le Chau Giang from Johnson & Johnson. Giang will explore regulatory strategies that raw material suppliers, as well as product manufacturers, can follow in order to enter or innovate in Asia.
