This year’s in-cosmetics Asia  will also host a workshop dedicated to the hair care. The workshop will provide attendees with the latest information on innovative topics such as hair physiology, from Vaishali Gode, PhD, of Marico and hair care sensory evaluation, led by Meei-Lih Lin, PhD, at P&G. With the announcement from its new L’Oréal Hair Research Centre that it is to launch a ingredient to awaken dormant hair and enhance hair density, L’Oréal’s Umesh Padke will host an session on the latest Trends in hair care. The rest of the workshop will cover an array of updates from leading lights within the hair care sector, including "What’s New in Hair Styling" from Chang Wang, PhD, of DSM; "What’s New in Hair Colouring" from Sensient and "What’s New in Hair Conditioning," hosted by Christina He of Lubrizol.

The event will host two dedicated formulation workshops: The Basic Formulation Workshop and The Advanced Formulation Workshop, both run by Luigi Rigano, PhD. The Basic Formulation Workshop will discuss the key steps of formulation strategy in the development of a new product. The workshop will include a cosmetic introduction, covering functions, to ingredients categories and selection–finally moving on to the key steps in formulation strategy for new product development. The Advanced Formulation Workshop will take discussions up will present attendees with a series of formulation options and their respective hurdles and follow procedural steps on how to become a self-styled cosmetic formula designer. The workshop will conclude with evaluation discussions and the sharing of the sensory approach between the formulator, marketing team and the consumer.

New to the event's educational program is The Interactive Natural and Organic Workshop. During this hands-on workshop, run by Barbara Olioso, PhD, of Organatural Cosmetic Developments, attendees will create a natural product, while discussing the issues and challenges encountered along the way. Exhibition delegates will be encouraged to obtain "hero" ingredients from around the show, which will then be brought together during the session, with a select few taken through to creation. Olioso will lead discussions on the different possibilities, choices and compromises that come with creating a natural product.
