Taking place next week in Brussels, Belgium, 13th - 16th June, the event’s ttheme is ‘More han meets the eye: the benefits of cosmetics and personal care’.
The event is set to welcome over 300 industry experts, policy makers, decision makers and companies, with organising noting they will explore the contribution of cosmetics to wellbeing, to the European economy and to global markets.
They will also, according to Cosmetics Europe, delve into the complexities of regulatory practice, network and create new business opportunities.
Go beyond the surface
John Chave, director general of Cosmetics Europe, has spoken of his excitement for the upcoming event, particularly its approach of engaging with the ‘particularly dynamic’ regulatory environment in Europe.
“It is crucial both that we understand the implications of the curent regulatory agenda, but also that we anticipate what is coming,” he says.
“But regulation never exists in a vacuum - it interacts with wider societal influences, the economy, and the evolving needs and aspirations of consumers. We need to understand these elements if we are to advance a vision for our industry going forward.”
Programme of events
The Cosmetics Europe Week will see a varied programme spread across keynote speakers, panel discussions, breakout sessions.
Presentations cover such topics as EU Cosmetics Regulation, the role of personal care in a holistic approach to public health, consumer information and the digital revolution, plastic microbeads, skin allergy and Brexit.
“Cosmetics and personal care products bring real benefits to consumers in a deeper sense than is sometimes appreciate,” says Chave. “There is More than Meets the Eye to our industry. Our aim is to reveal a little of that at our conference.”
