Cosmétagora is always a much awaited and popular event in the cosmetics world. The current trends were revealed in the area dedicated to the presentation of the formulas selected for the fifth Cosmétagora Formulation Award. 66 laboratories were in competition. CosmeticOBS chose to start by introducing the four formulas rewarded, and then all the others (in the alphabetical order of the laboratories and by resuming their sales leaflets).

COSMOS Face cleansing paste
The uniqueness of this O/W COSMOS Emulsion lies in its texture!
At first, its old-fashioned ointment look awakens curiosity. Then, it reveals a real sensorial experience: apply a generous quantity, and the paste slowly melts on the wet skin to turn to a soft, creamy texture and offer a persistent sensation on the skin even after it has been rinsed off.
We went back to basics with simple raw materials like VITACEL© CS 20 FC, natural, biodegradable cellulose.
Used as a real texturing agent here, this fibre derived from wood visually transforms the emulsion, which instantaneously gains volume and unctuosity.
Sensoriality is amplified, followed by endless softness.
The small, supple brush modernizes the use of the product: it offers a new gesture for daily, delicate cleansing.
This surprising toothpaste-like paste containing 99% natural ingredients will wrap your skin in a cotton bubble!
