Aprinnova Announces Clean Beauty Expert Panel for Future of Clean Event

Sponsored by Aprinnova

Aprinnova has confirmed Ken Cook, Vivienne Rudd, Caroline Hadfield and Frederique Lafosse will participate as expert panelists during its Future of Clean event on Monday, April 1.

Clean Beauty is the emerging answer to consumer demand for products that reflect their core values such as sustainability and transparency, however a global standard for “clean” still does not exist. This gap risks “clean-washing” and confusion among both consumers and brands.

The group of expert panelists will offer diverse insights about critical opportunities towards achieving a global clean beauty standard from consumer advocacy, market trend, cosmetic R&D and brand equity perspectives.
