Event Details


The clean beauty movement is growing. Clean beauty implies that a product can be used without affecting the health of the consumer, based on its safety and toxicity profile. It also suggests transparency in the labeling of products and simplicity in the inclusion of ingredients. The definition of clean beauty does not necessarily imply the use of natural and organic ingredients, just that the raw materials are safe and have a good toxicological profile. Join us for this intellectually stimulating event, diving into the clean beauty movement, from trends in formulations and ingredients, to the retail space and the brand experience.



Welcome address

Clean Beauty – Minimalism in Formulation

After years of complex cosmetic formulations, a new trend based on minimal ingredients with proven efficacy and safety is growing as part of the clean beauty movement. Consumer demand for clarity, simplicity, safety and efficacy associated with a contained supply chain is driving the growth.
