The 3rd edition of Cosmetorium has been a success, demonstrating the energy and creativity that drive the cosmetic industry in Spain.
More than 2000 professionals gathered on 26 and 27 September at the Palau de Congressos de Barcelona (an increase of 40% compared to 2017) to discover the latest ingredients and trends in design, creation, development, marketing and production of cosmetics.
Cosmetorium offered one of the largest commercial showcases in the sector in an edition marked by the growth of the exhibition area, a total of 1,326 m2 divided across two levels of the site. 128 companies participated (+ 19% compared to previous editions) from across the world presenting their latest launches, products and services to visitors who came to the stands, complemented by a program of 36 Techfocus business conferences.
The sessions of the regulatory block, organised in collaboration with STANPA, and the trends of the cosmetics of the future were highlighted, a beauty scenario for 2020 to which Ambra Orini from The Beautymakers transported us. As a novelty this year, practical activities were added to the program of activities and live demonstrations that dealt with issues related to formulation, textures and machinery.
The Cosmetorium Awards were also presented, which in their second edition rewarded innovation in formulation. The first prize went to the company Vytrus Biotech for Perfect Touch: Skin rebalancing and Vitalizing Serum, a serum formulated with natural thickeners respectful of the microbiome of the skin; Bicosome won the second prize for Advanced Re-balancing Ritual, a formula that mimics the natural nanostructures of the skin and made in matchá tea; And, finally, the third prize went to Unigolden for SPF 50 Three-Phase Photoprotective Spray, an SPF 50 silar protector with UVA / UVB balance (ISO method 24443) presented in an innovative and unique three-phase shape.
Cosmetorium, designed by the Spanish Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SEQC) and organised jointly with Step Exhibitions, is the reference forum on formulation, manufacture and distribution of cosmetic products in Spain. Its fourth edition will take place on 23 and 24 October 2019 at the Fira Montjuïc site.
