The coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented health, social and economic crises. The cosmetics industry has been affected in various ways: from the supply of raw materials, production process, to marketing and distribution of finished products. Consumers are also changing the way they buy and use cosmetics & personal care products. The sustainability implications of this pandemic on the cosmetics industry will be discussed at the upcoming Sustainable Cosmetics Summit. The European edition will be hosted on an online platform on 2-5th November 2020.
