Considered the transversality that characterizes all trade fair in every field, also Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna could do nothing but combine various tendencies, emerged very clearly from Cosmotrends report, solely written and designed by Beautystreams (international trend agency, a reference for cosmetic industry). These are the three general trends: according to science-backed innovation the next generation of skincare features exciting scientific innovations, underlined by clinical studies and collaboration with research institutions; holistic health: the “inside out” approach to beauty is more than a trend and it is redefining beauty wellness; next-generation sustainability, because brands are ever more mindful of the imperative to preserve the planet, so there is a look for concentrated waterless formulations, harvesting techniques, and manufacturing methods and also biodegradable, zero-waste packaging.
As regards packaging the International prestige of Cosmopack keeps growing, the only example of a fair that presents the entire cosmetic supply chain, from formulation to packaging, from machinery to automation solutions for the industries, from contract manufacturing to private label. Cosmopack will gather the 17% of all Cosmoprof exhibitors, representing 38 countries, with a growth rate up to 16% when compared to 2022.
