Dried fragrance capsules and nanotechnology at in-cosmetics Latin America


Latin America’s leading ingredients sourcing event to showcase the raw materials and technology at the cutting edge of the personal care industry

in-cosmetics Latin America is gearing up to showcase the latest innovations in personal care ingredients between 20 and 21 September at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.

Innovation in the personal care industry all starts with raw materials and the technology used to extract them; for example, to create a revolutionary anti-ageing cream, it’s crucial that formulators have access to equally revolutionary assets and resources. It’s therefore no surprise that the world's largest ingredients suppliers pour millions into research and development, and showcase the fruits of their labour and investment at in-cosmetics Latin America.

The event will see companies such as Chemyunion, Kumar Organics, Tinci, Ikeda, Clariant and Croda showcase their market-leading ingredients to manufacturers from across the region.

Daniel Zanetti, Exhibition Director in-cosmetics Latin America, commented: "Innovation is the great engine of in-cosmetics Latin America. Brand new product launches, interactive show areas and an insight into the latest marketing trends create an inspiring environment in which business thrives.”

What’s in store

At in-cosmetics Latin America 2017, Chemyunion will demonstrate how it uses technology, science and expertise to innovate within health and personal care.
