Lipids & Cosmetics congress

4th edition
Cosmetics lives with its times and constantly seeks to reinvent itself as consumer needs and expectations evolve. To the notions of pleasure, well-being and performance must now be systematically added those of the origin of the raw materials used and of naturalness. Moreover, the geopolitical and environmental changes complicate reliable sources of supply. Challenges faced by cosmetics are therefore numerous, mixing sciences, processes, sourcing, regulations, etc.

Since Antiquity, lipids have been the main ingredients used in the formulation of beauty products whether in their natural form of oils, fats or waxes or their derivatives, which benefit from numerous scientific and industrial advances. Their complex, varied and variable composition requires a perfect characterization in order to better understand their impact in formulation and their performance in application, but also allows to maintain a strong innovation process.

To propose to the consumer an high quality, the lipid materials used in cosmetic formulations must present a perfect stability in their composition, their smell and their color and come from cultures and processes of extraction and purification eco-responsible.

As such, the Lipids and Cosmetics congress has been contributing for several years to create synergies between all the necessary skills.

In a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, come to share ideas, present results or discover the latest research initiatives and innovations in the fields of lipids for cosmetics.
