in-cosmetics North America will take place at the Javits Center in New York City on Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 18. Beauty industry suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and consultancies will be exhibiting at the event. While a preponderance of attendees work in product development as marketers, brand managers, R&D / R&I experts, formulators, cosmetic chemists, etc.
“The Marketing Trends presentations deliver the latest insights, trends, facts, figures, market analysis and research intelligence in the beauty industry,” according to press materials from the event organizers.
And the in-cosmetics team calls attention to 4 topics they believe should be of particular interest to beauty makers now: clean beauty, regulations and international standards, the skin microbiome, and J Beauty.
