With many cosmetic and ingredient firms looking to the food industry for inspiration, the next edition of the Latin American Sustainable Cosmetics Summit - taking place in São Paulo on 28-30 September 2015 - will feature the growing convergence of foods and cosmetics in the beauty industry.
The agenda comprises four seminar sessions and a technical workshop. The growing use of food ingredients in cosmetic formulations will be explored, as well as the use of such materials as the starting point for cosmetic ingredients. The potential of nutri-cosmetics in Latin America, superfoods for beauty, novel food actives, and skin nutrition will also be covered.
The green formulations session will cover sustainability issues associated with agricultural materials. Dr. Anita Pissolito, for instance, will give an update on Brazilian biodiversity regulations and their implications to cosmetic and ingredient firms. The US cooperative Natural Plant Products will state the difficulties in measuring the environmental footprint of vegetable oils. Other papers will discuss sustainable processing methods, sustainable palm oil, and novel actives.
Furthermore, industry leaders such as Caudalie Brazil, Grupo Boticario and Natura Brasil will share their company’s experience and give insights into their new sustainability endeavours and their expertise.
The 4th Latin American edition will be hosted at the Pullman São Paulo Ibirapuera on 28-30th September.
