• Formulating for the conscious consumer

    Conscious consumerism is on the rise: shoppers aren't just looking for cosmetics and toiletries that make them look, smell and feel good but are actively seeking out personal care products that are soothing for the mind, "healthier" for the body and better for the planet.

  • Attend the Formulation Summit 2019

    In response to this increasingly growing trend, the in-cosmetics Formulation Summit is looking to empower R&D professionals and formulators with the latest science and research in formulating for mindful, health-conscious and eco-conscious consumers.

    Delegates to the summit can expect high-level talks and presentations - delivered by industry experts - that address both the formulation challenges and opportunities in developing "healthy", "mindful" and "ethical" personal care products, as well as networking opportunities that facilitate collaboration and creativity around the topic.

  • What will be covered?

    Across the two days of the conference, industry experts will look to address the best practices when formulating for conscious consumers within three distinct topics:

    Good for the body

    Developing products for healthy skin and hair, the microbiome and alternative preservation strategies.

    Good for the planet

    Creating waterless cosmetics, ocean and reef friendly suncare and formulating for degradable packaging.

    Good for the mind

    Defining emotional cosmetics, neurocosmetics and using psychology with cosmetic claim substantiation.
  • When and where?

    The Summit will take place from the 19th to 20th November 2019, at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge.
