In personal care, science continues to ‘sell’ products. Creative difference is a key factor in success. This 2-day biennial conference will bring together the latest thinking and expertise from leading practitioners and suppliers in recognition of ‘Science in a Bottle’.

The 2018 Science in a Bottle conference will focus on personal care that really makes a difference. 

Happiness & well-being   
An insight into how using cosmetics and personal care products can trigger certain emotions, enhancing the user’s overall experience and how this can have an impact psychologically.

A focus on the biological function of the skin barrier, how certain biological mechanisms can help protect the skin from the environment and how these mechanisms can be enhanced by the use of cosmetics.

Safety at the forefront   
Highlighting the key methodologies that have been developed and introduced since the ban on animal testing of cosmetic ingredients and finished products, which should act as a beacon for other global cosmetic regulators. 

Technology – How beauty is adapting to the digital world   
Covering what technology is currently available on the market, what we should expect in the future and how this technology will have an impact on how we formulate products for this new buying platform for consumers.
