For its 11th edition, the exhibition organized in Paris on 15 and 16 January by the French Society of Cosmetology (SFC), brought together nearly 150 exhibitors. In a few years, this event has become a must, both for ingredient suppliers who present their latest active ingredients and for visitors who discover innovative raw materials, trends and new technologies.
In addition to presenting their new ingredients, companies can also participate to the Formulation Prize.
For the 2019 edition, the theme was “Surprise us with your best formula”. This choice is explained by a desire to allow all exhibiting companies to be able to participate by demonstrating their creativity.
65 candidates were in the running, here are the winners and the presentations they made of their candidate formulas.
