Sustainability is a high priority for personal care and cosmetic ingredient suppliers, manufacturers and brands. Helping the industry to take the next step towards circularity, in-cosmetics Global will return to Barcelona, Spain at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via from 28-30 March 2023 with sustainability at the forefront of discussions.
More than 700 personal care ingredient suppliers will showcase their latest ingredients. Among them will include BASF, Croda, Ashland, Solvay, Clariant, Momentive, Evonik, Lubrizol, Nouryon, Arxada (formerly Lonza Specialty Ingredients), Stepan Europe, Wacker, Shin-Etsu, Roquette, DSM and Symrise. Meanwhile, almost 60 new exhibitors will attend for the first time, including AntalGenics, Cellugy ApS, Escruder, Gravel AI, Innomost and Sequential Bio.
Zoning in on Sustainability
The new sustainability zone will welcome exhibitors who can support suppliers and manufacturers in becoming more sustainable and will cover product planning, formulation and ingredient sourcing, packaging, manufacturing and transportation.
Elsewhere on the show floor, dedicated zones will focus on specialist topics. From ingredient launches in the innovation zone to product showcases in the fragrance zone, lab zone and testing and regulation zone. Furthermore, the sensory bar and makeup bar will return to show new product launches.
Brands and ingredients will also be on show by location. The country pavilions will capture the trends and innovations showcased by suppliers, spanning France, UK, Brazil, Spain, China, Tunisia, South Africa and new to the show this year, Indonesia.
Also returning to the show will be the R&D tours open to R&D professionals from cosmetic/contract manufacturers. The themes for this year’s tours include microbiome advancements in skin care and anti-aging, skinification and biotech.
Available in a digital and printed format for on-site visitors, this year’s indie trail will help attendees navigate the event.
Learning From Industry Experts
The education program at this year’s in-cosmetics Global will discuss pertinent trends impacting cosmetics and personal care brands. Market intelligence will be explored in the marketing trends theatre, where experts will share industry research and market analysis.
The formulation lab will return to provide opportunities for formulators and R&D specialists to get hands-on with the latest formulation techniques.
Roziani Zulkifli, event director, in-cosmetics Global, commented: “More than ever, we’re seeing sustainability dominate conversations, with suppliers, manufacturers and brands all dedicating time and budget to understand how they can minimize their impact on the planet. As the conversation continues to expand, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our new sustainability zone at this year’s event. It will further expand the opportunities for attendees to discover solutions to every challenge facing their business. We’re counting down the days to return to Barcelona – our first Spanish event since 2015 – and the chance to inspire the industry to take the next step in the critical journey to circularity.”
