Trend Flashback: Women’s Innovations
One of the predictions in last December’s Cosmetics Design video ‘Top ten cosmetics and personal care trends for 2017’ was that, “Women will stand out in 2017 as the founders, inventors, and business leaders in personal care and cosmetics.” Here, we’ve compiled a short list of just some of the year’s news that bears out this trend.

Many of the brand innovations Cosmetics Design reported on this past year have come from the indie beauty sector, so several of the articles featured here are from the weekly Indie Beauty Profile column. The Indie Beauty Profile will return in the New Year; but in the meantime, if you lead or know of a compelling independent cosmetics, personal care, or fragrance brand, feel free to contact Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske (qrnaan.hgebfxr@jeoz.pbz​) to be considered for the column.

And here is a selection of articles highlighting women’s innovation and leadership in the cosmetics and personal care industry this year:
