About

Smithers Rapra is delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Sustainability & Naturals in Cosmetics conference taking place in Barcelona, Spain on 31 May - 1 June 2018.

Smithers Group's world-leading conferences have a proven history of 30+ years providing invaluable forums for learning, discussion and networking. Some of the key events we have run include the Pigment Colour Science Forum, Sustainability in Packaging and the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy. Our team also provides expertise through testing, reporting and consultancy in chemicals, packaging, sustainability, bio-based materials and much more.

With consumers  becoming increasingly conscious of sustainability issues, a significant number are making the switch to natural and sustainable beauty products, and companies are facing the challenge of adapting their practices to stay ahead of the market. As the first of its kind, this conference will tackle this by providing the industry with a much-needed platform to discuss innovation and new trends in sustainability and naturals in cosmetics.

So, whatever level of the supply chain you're from, if you're working towards sustainability in cosmetics and bio-based ingredient developments, this is a must-attend event for you!
