The trade show has stated that more than 400 exhibitors and 9,000 visitors are anticipated to attend the show.
Widely recognised for its personal care and cosmetics market, the APAC region accounts for 36% of the global market. To spotlight this, in-cosmetics Asia aims to provide a platform to connect the regional and global personal care community with comprehensive business and networking opportunities.
Expecting new exhibitors
The show is expecting several new exhibitors from the tech sector, including a biotech start-up, a bio-venture company, a Malaysian sustainable palm oil supplier, a personal care and fragrance range, and an Indian manufacturer of plant-based extracts and natural ingredients.
As new companies are registering their attendance, the show’s Innovation Zone will display most new ingredients and formulas in the market.
Sponsored by Mibelle Biochemistry, the Innovation Zone will feature dedicated areas for active and functional ingredients. Additionally, it will facilitate sourcing opportunities for attendees.
This year’s Spotlight On, a dedicated product display, will focus on three developing sectors: Fragrance, Healthy Skin and Makeup.
At this display, visitors will see a range of formulated ingredients relating to these popular product categories.
