Industry Relevance

in-cosmetics is a powerful brand that commands attention across the entire world. There are several successful satellite events located in all major industry regions: Latin America, Asia, North America and Korea. Another satellite exhibition is the specialised in-cosmetics Formulation Summit, which has been running since 2015 and created specifically for R&D professionals, senior formulators and decision makers in that field. 

in-cosmetics is an annual event held in a new city in Europe every single year and manages the entire process chain for the cosmetics sector. The product portfolio features fillers, personal care ingredients, colorants, emulsifiers, formulation, fragrances, humectants, preservatives, tanning agents, solvents, sunscreen, surfactants and more. It is the perfect platform to gain recognition and expand your geographic reach.

The exhibition halls also host several special, educational zones. The largest and most popular is the Fragrance Zone populated by the prestigious fragrance houses, producers and distributors of extracts and ingredients in the world. The special area not only facilitates business deals, but offers expert advice on everything from regional differences to how to source aromatic components. You will experience the full breadth of scents from around the world. 

The next two zones walk kind of hand in hand. First, there’s the Lab Zone dedicated to the recent developments in lab equipment. In addition to the information aspect where you get to see trends in action, visitors can also connect with experts that could advise them on how to meet their needs. In the Testing & Regulation Zone, exhibitors do their best to present their work in regards to test running and what has changed in terms of regulations and practices. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

The great thing about in-cosmetics is the inclusivity in terms of who gets to exhibit and who makes the trip. Exhibitors in particular are personal care manufacturers and suppliers from the full spectrum. We are talking about small and large companies as well as those who work in different scales from niche to bulk. As mentioned above, the entire process chain is represented from raw materials and ingredients, fragrance components, lab equipment and software suppliers to testing and research. As far as visitors, the names will get you to book a stand right now – we are talking about Procter & Gamble, L'Oréal, Unilever, Estée Lauder, Glossier, Korres, and Ellis Faas.

The countries with national pavilions are France, South Korea, Brazil, Spain, South Africa, the UK, Colombia, Peru and Tunisia, which only confirms the international appeal of in-cosmetics Global in 2022. If you’re a niche supplier, getting a spot at your country’s pavilion is the best way to reach the maximum audience. Visitors are quite invested in searching for the best possible new products beyond their geographic region. The potential for visibility with buyers is high. 

Additional Value of Attending

The road to being discovered is easy when you sign up for a spot on the guided tours taking place during the event. First there are the R&D Tours, which are only open to R&D professionals from cosmetics and contract manufacturers. It’s a silent tour on a specific trend that’s currently popular in the industry led by an experienced guide, who takes visitors through a curated lineup of booths. The goal of the tour is not just to inform and educate, but introduce exhibitors to potential buyers. 

The other series of tours is called the Indie Trail – a digital resource for on-site visitors. This small booklet is designed to help indie brand visitors to navigate the event and find the best exhibitors working with smaller productions. It’s an easy way to get noticed during the event and ensure you get a steady stream of foot traffic naturally. You’ll also be visible to digital visitors through the exhibition’s digital platform. 

The supporting programme is one of the best and there’s an item for every professional background involved in the cosmetics industry. If you’re heavily involved in the business development side, the Marketing Trends stage provides you with industry trends, facts, figures, market analysis and research data every day of the trade fair. Learn from the best of the best about every single area of the cosmetics sector.

Sustainability has become a top priority in recent years and you can discover how to go greener in your production at the Sustainability Corner. The goal here is to find all the ways and resources in order to achieve true sustainable beauty. In this case it’s about advancements in sustainable raw materials, business structures and processes. 

Continue learning from experts by signing up for the Technical Seminars, which range in topic and line of work. The lineup features in-depth knowledge of the benefits raw ingredients provide to sharing scientific evidence that substantiates the claims associated with their products.
