Further, the company reports that SPF delivery remains one of the bigger challenges, with deliverable SPF numbers not high enough to yet satisfy current market demands.

Update Sept. 9, 9:32am EST

The 16th HBA Annual Trade Show and Educational Conference World kicked off September 9th with a key note from skin care expert and dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, providing strategies and insight on the relation of antiaging to inflammation.

This year’s show boasts 742 international industry suppliers and educational partners presenting their latest products, innovations and expertise. Mintel, a global market research company, will host "Innovating Trends;" a daily sampling session allowing attendees to experience the growing nutricosmetic trend and taste, touch and feel beauty products from around the world—including candy fortified with collagen, chocolate with skin nourishing vitamins and fat-burning water.

The Fragrance Business Product Pavilion—featuring top fragrance houses (including IFF, Arylessence, Cosmo, Flavor & Fragrances Specialties) as well as IFRA and RIFM—also opened. The conference will open on September 10th.

GCI magazine will be providing daily reports from the 16th HBA Annual Trade Show and Educational Conference, September 9-11.

Come back daily for reports on new product launches and insights from the conferences. We will have photos from the show floor at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, plus highlights from GCI magazine's Fragrance Business event.
