Cosmetics industry left behind by international negotiations on biodiversity

- Last updated on GMT

Negotiations on the trade in biodiversity-based products that will impact how cosmetic companies source their natural ingredients were continued earlier this week in Paris.

Maria Julia Oliva, from the Union for Ethical Biotrade, explains how the cosmetics sector, which has been fairly silent in negotiations so far, differs from its more vocal pharmaceutical cousin when it comes to sourcing ingredients and know-how from abroad.

Olive believes cosmetics companies may find their trade in natural ingredients becomes more difficult if the international rules don’t take their needs into account.
