The Naturals in Cosmetics Science Conference

The world of natural cosmetics is evolving. A natural positioning is becoming increasingly important to consumers due to its association with safety, sustainability and a low environmental impact.

However, consumers are not prepared to compromise on product performance and this accompanied by developments in technology mean that we have moved a long way from simple natural material additions to today’s complex formulations delivering high performance products.

The comprehensive three day online programme of this SCS Conference will feature key experts on sustainable sourcing of our industry’s key feedstocks plus certification bodies and standards that consider different aspects of naturalness and environmental impact. We will also be hearing about trends in natural cosmetics and the experience of consumer goods companies operating in this field.
