Moving to Europe: indie beauty takes centre stage
It’s a sign that indie beauty is on the rise globally, as independent players move with more agility, due to their size, than more established, larger players.
Indie brands can also be reactive to niche consumer demands and respond rapidly to feedback, making the most of online and digital platforms in order to offer an authentic, engaged brand profile.
“Independent brands are among the fastest growing product categories,” say the show’s organisers.
“They are capturing consumer attention, influencing trends, and becoming a coveted part of retailer collections.
“The Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) was founded to support the growth and success of independent beauty brands and the entrepreneurs behind them. Since its launch in 2015, IBE has grown to become the largest professionally-curated event of its kind.”
