The organisers of next month’s in-cosmetics Asia have released details of education programme speakers set to take to the stage at the Bangkok trade show.
The programme features the likes of Euromonitor, Mintel, Asia Cosme Lab and many other industry-leading organisations.
Key topics at this year’s event include conscious consumerism/sustainable beauty; the influence of premiumisation in personal care; regulatory requirements for ingredients; and skin tone management.
A key session scheduled for the Marketing Trends Theatre will be ‘Conscious consumerism and the pursuit of sustainable beauty’, run by market research company Euromonitor International.
This will explore how mindful consumerism has created a discernible shift in consumer shopping habits.
This year’s education programme at in-cosmetics Asia will highlight some of the key developments in the APAC skincare market and how brands are taking on prominent industry challenges.
Run by Asia Cosme Lab and being held in the Marketing Trends and Regulations Theatre, a session on skin tone management will deep-dive into the evolution of the market, where inclusivity is being increasingly championed, while also promoting an ideal skin tone and complexion.
In line with this, the programme will feature several technical seminars including ‘For younger and healthier skin — Bioactive brightening & tightening solutions’ by Sylvia Liu of Bloomage Biotechnology and ‘Velvety skin feel and wrinkle reduction with upcycled fermentation ingredient’ by Kenji Oike of Vitamin C60 BioResearch.
Regarding hair care, Tanya Rajani of Mintel India, will lead a discussion on India’s hair oil secrets, analysing the latest trends in the market and the role of hair oils in India from treatment to wellbeing.
The event will also feature ‘Love is in the Hair’ a visual showcase profiling trendy ingredients that are presented in formulated prototypes – demonstrating how they can be used in finished products.
This is designed for visitors looking to formulate next-generation hair and scalp care products, embracing key trends before they hit the market.
This year’s education programme also features several demonstrations on how to develop suncare products in the Formulation Lab, with sessions hosted by Elementis, Nikko Chemicals and more.
“Through a combination of technical seminars, product and ingredient showcases, and marketing trends sessions, the in-cosmetics Asia education programme will highlight the biggest innovations in sustainable and ethical beauty today,” said event director Sarah Gibson.
