Formulating in the Climate Change Age

  • Climate Change is a much-debated topic that has been polarising lay people as well as scientists. Whether one believes it is happening or not, we are all experiencing some unprecedented phenomena, or at least we all perceive something is not quite right.

    What is the role of the cosmetic industry?

    This year's Formulation Summit will explore how cosmetic scientists in general, and cosmetic formulators in particular, can play a positive role.

    “Natural” and “sustainability” are the words that come to mind, even though it is now time to look beyond these concepts and embrace a wider and more holistic idea of the cosmetic industry.

    View the programme and discover how you can make a positive impact on the environment in the climate change age...
