More than 400 exhibitors are anticipated to join the line-up, with more than 9,000 attendees expected to head to the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center (BITEC) from Nov. 1-3.
Representing the Epicenter of Innovation
Widely recognized for its thriving personal care and cosmetics market, the APAC region remains the largest in the beauty and personal care sector, accounting for 36% of the global market. It has long represented the epicenter of innovation, spearheading some of the world’s biggest beauty trends thanks to its innovative approach to new products and ingredients. Helping to put this innovation under the spotlight, In-cosmetics Asia will provide a platform to connect the regional and global personal care community with a host of comprehensive and cost-effective business and networking opportunities.
Technology will also be at the forefront on the Cellicon Lab stand. The Korean bio-venture company specializes in dermal delivery technology of topical therapeutics. Its revolutionary peptide technology, PermeaCell, is designed to penetrate the stratum corneum (SC) by intercellular and the epidermis by cell-to-cell transmission.
Hot New ingredients
With the array of new companies joining the line-up, the show’s popular Innovation Zone will once again provide an invaluable snapshot of some of the most innovative new ingredients and formulations to hit the market. Sponsored by Mibelle Biochemistry, the Innovation Zone will feature dedicated areas for active and functional ingredients, showcasing ingredients from Croda, Ichimaru Pharcos and Chemyunion and more, while further facilitating sourcing opportunities for attendees.
With thousands of personal care professionals including R&D specialists, formulators, chemists, marketers and indie brand owners in attendance, the 13th edition of In-cosmetics Asia will also deliver unrivalled educational opportunities.
The comprehensive Marketing Trends & Regulations program will define industry trends for professionals from across the new product development process. Confirmed topics include ageless beauty and the evolution of anti-aging to embracing aging by S&J International Enterprises; Conquering Beauty E-commerce: Innovation and Reinvention by Azarine Cosmetic; Disrupting the Beauty Landscape – the role of Gen Z and Millennials by Flying Fish Lab; and Beauty From Within: Nootropics and Nutricosmetics by Global Data.
The popular formulation lab will also return, providing invaluable opportunities for formulators and R&D specialists to learn about new ingredients and formulation techniques. Registration for this year’s daily interactive live training sessions will open soon for current and emerging formulators, delivered by suppliers such as Gattefossé, Nikko Chemicals and Hallstar Beauty.
New for 2022, the lab will also host an exclusive masterclass led by in-cosmetics Asia’s new Technical Advisor, Dr. Oliver Hofmann. The session will focus on solid cosmetics and waterless formulations as Oliver explores the issues facing formulators as brands look to remove plastics and respond to increased demands for ‘waterless’ or ‘solid’ cosmetics. Attendees will also get the chance to see these new techniques in action when Oliver formulates a solid sugar scrub in which the exfoliant is suspended in a mixture of oils and waxes.
Attendees who pre-register for this year’s event will receive an exclusive In-cosmetics Asia 21-page industry report. With insights from The Kline Group and Gentleman Marketing Agency along with references to research by McKinsey and Company, Euromonitor and more, ‘The Changing Face of the APAC Cosmetics Industry’ report explores the impact of the pandemic on the APAC personal care and cosmetics market. It covers how the pandemic has spurred local growth, the sectors celebrating a revival in popularity and the next chapter of product trends. Register today to receive a complimentary copy.
