The Beauty Revolution
During the past five years, the cosmetic ingredient market has
witnessed industry-wide changes in the way consumers shop
for beauty. New brands are also exploring exciting new ways of
entering the market. As such, new trends and challenges are appearing. These include the growing influence of digital beauty
and wearables, Brexit, the sustainability debate and ethical developments, such as halal’s influence across fragrance raw materials
and cosmetic ingredients alike.
All of these trends will be covered in detail during the education program at In-Cosmetics Global.
As wearable technology continues to thrive, consumers are
now able to gain in-depth insight into the inner workings of their
own body. Mintel research shows that 18% of Chinese consumers own a wearable device, up from 13% in 2014. To put in perspective, nearly half (48%) of UK sun care users would also be
interested in an app that can be used to track changes in their
skin or moles. All this wearable technology means that brands
must evolve their offerings to remain relevant.
Anastasia Georgievskaya is co-founder and research scientist
at Youth Laboratories, a company developing tools to study aging

artificial intelligence (AI). She will be exploring AI in depth during her session on using artificial intelligence to enable consumers to look younger.

to create new product innovations, with exclusive insights from
sourcing the latest innovative ingredients, through to formulating
