SPEAKERS & TOPICS

TRENDS
More than masks: 
which Asian trends have potential in the UK
Julia Wray (Editor, SPC Magazine) 
Synopsis Western markets are increasingly looking East for inspiration when it comes to beauty and personal care. But what standout and emerging trends from Asia could prove potential winners for UK brands? And which ones might struggle to bridge the cultural divide? 

REGULATION
Current and upcoming regulatory challenges in Asia

Olivia Santoni (CTPA Head of Regulatory and International Services)
Synopsis The Asia cosmetics market is a booming market. The Asian population is equivalent to 59.69% of the total world population. However it is also a very challenging region because of the various regulatory regimes. Companies looking at exporting cosmetics in this region need therefore to understand the different requirements in order not to have their shipment blocked. This session will highlight the key regulatory challenges the cosmetic industry is currently facing in China, India, Asean and Korea and what we should expect in the future as several countries in this region are currently reviewing their cosmetics legislations.

PRESERVATIVES
Dealing with the current pressures on preservative systems
Alex Fotheringham (Microbiological Solutions Ltd) 
Synopsis Formulators of cosmetic products are facing a diverse range of pressures to reduce or change their existing preservative systems. Consumers are becoming more conscious of cosmetic ingredients and increasingly demanding, while regulators are using new safety data to impose bans or strengthening existing limits. This is against a backdrop of a reduction in preservative research and development and the constant drive for cost effectiveness.
All of these factors increase the potential for inadequately preserved products to enter the market place, and it is key that as an industry we understand how to withstand these pressures. This presentation will explore some solutions to these problems with specific focus on the European Cosmetic Regulation and manufacturing processes.

Venue: Leigh Court, Abbots Leigh, Bristol BS8 3RA
