Sustainable Cosmetics Summit
Nov 06 - 08, 2017

Changing the face of the beauty industry by sustainable development         

 The Sustainable Cosmetics Summit will feature sustainable sourcing, green formulations, and social impacts. The growing use of agriculture materials in cosmetics & personal care products is raising questions about sourcing practices. An update will be given on sustainable sourcing of cosmetic ingredients, highlighting issues with supply chains and transparency. Another session will cover developments in green formulations. What new green materials are making their way in cosmetic & personal care applications? How are brands integrating sustainability into their products formulations?

Approaches to address the social impacts of cosmetic products will also be featured. How can brands increase the social value of their products? What can be done to encourage responsible use and disposal of cosmetic and personal care products? An interactive workshop tackles the sustainability issues associated with fragrances.

Organised by Ecovia Intelligence, the aim of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit is to encourage sustainability in the beauty industry by bringing together key stakeholders on a regular basis at international locations and debate major sustainability issues in a high-level forum. Each summit brings together decision makers in the beauty industry, including cosmetic manufacturers, ingredient & raw material suppliers, retailers & distributors, industry organizations & certification agencies, researchers & academics, investors, etc.
