The event is a unique source of new cosmetic product ideas, pulling the entire network to conceptualise and implement them efficiently. As the largest cosmetics market in Europe, it provides an ideal platform to showcase innovative products and technologies in four primary segments: 

  • Ingredients (Active ingredients, natural extracts, fragrances, oils, fats, waxes, dyes)
  • Manufacturing (Formulation, contract manufacturing, private label, machinery, quality assurance)
  • Packaging (Packaging materials, finishing & decoration, marking & labelling)
  • Services (Testing & certification, consulting, sales promotion & displays, distribution & logistics, media)

At Cosmetic Business, visitors can expect live demonstrations, workshops, competitions, and an intensive conference program with a focus on sustainability, raw materials, packaging and future developments. One of the highlight events is the Innovation Corner, dedicated to start-ups and the latest trends in the cosmetics sector. The novelty special show SPOTLIGHT and “Meet the Start-up! Area” provide young professionals with a unique opportunity to experience high-level B2B networking and present their business ideas to key decision-makers.
