U'Cosmetics 10th edition

Art can be found in our history and in our daily lives as well as in our know-how. It influences the daily creation of cosmetic products by inspiring new galenic products, new gestures or new packaging. For its 10th anniversary, on March 21, 2019, U’Cosmetics invites you to discover its new edition with the theme “When Art inspires cosmetic innovation”. With, as every year, a student competition coupled with a one-day conference.

Reading time : ~ 3 minutes

Art is a wide universe and cosmetic innovation draws on it to create trends and innovations for the future. On March 21, 2019, the UCO Bretagne Nord in Guingamp organizes the 10th edition of U’Cosmetics on the theme of Art & Cosmetics.

The student contest

The students in competition, in teams of 2 to 5 people, must imagine and present an innovative cosmetic project (formulation or concept) related to Art.
For this 10th edition, 10 schools have registered for the U’Cosmetics 2019 competition. These come from all over France and offer different courses: cosmetology, pharmaceutics, chemistry, formulation, marketing…

Teams may, if they wish, collaborate with young artists from art or design schools to complete their cosmetic innovation project.
The most innovative projects will then be selected by a jury, composed of 12 professionals from the sector, and will be awarded four prizes at the event:
• Two “innovation in cosmetic formulation” awards
• An “innovative concept” award
• A “Philippe Collas” prize, the public’s favourite

The professional conference

Its theme is also Art and Cosmetics. There will be seven interventions and they will be led by professionals. This conference will allow you to discover all the facets of Art applied to cosmetics! All the ways to “innovate through Art” and to be inspired by it will be discussed: the History of Art in cosmetics, new gestures, Whaou Products, craftsmanship, limited editions…
