In-cosmetics 2016: Highlights

We’re back from a fantastic few days exhibiting at in-cosmetics! In-cosmetics is an international trade show for personal care ingredients, which brings together personal care brands and ingredients specialists all under one roof. It was a great opportunity to present ourselves to the industry alongside some of the world’s leading cosmetics and personal care manufacturers and brands.

In-cosmetics 2016: Highlights

Show Highlights

Lucy Simmonds, our Technical Business Development Manager, presented an innovation seminar titled ‘RSPO and Palm Free Emulsifiers for Natural Cosmetics’, on Thursday 14 April 2016, to an audience of more than 80 industry professionals. The seminar looked at the context of sustainability in the personal care sector and addressed some of the key drivers that are effecting change and driving trends in the industry - such as growing consumer demand for natural or organic products.

The presentation also introduced our new range of naturally derived emulsifiers, and how formulators can enhance their brand image, save costs and energy, and improve the speed and safety of product development.

"As many as 87% of global consumers consider a company’s social and environmental stance before making purchase choices"

New product launch:

Our new cold process range of DUROSOFT® emulsifiers were the highlight of our stand, as they were launched exclusively at the show - gaining a great deal of interest from visitors who were looking to formulate with a sustainable RSPO ingredient for use in natural cosmetics.

Custom-designed stand:

This year, we also invested in a custom-built stand by Sharmanshaw, built around the theme of ‘Creative Chemistry since 1856’ – playing on our technical expertise and strong heritage - and had fantastic feedback from everyone who came to see us.

Visitors were met by our technical and commercial experts on the stand, and discussed a range of project requirements, product ideas, and help with formulation challenges within the areas of: Melt & Pour Soap Bases, Extruded Soap Bases, Liquid Soaps, Cosmetic Bases and Emulsifiers.

Thank you to everyone who came to see us – both existing customers and new. We’re looking forward to in-cosmetics London 2017 already!
