R&D

  • Ideas that help you succeed in R&D

    The personal care industry is driven by scientific innovation, which puts pressure on R&D professionals.

    Standing out in the lab, and from the competition, means finding new ways to be innovative without compromising on formulation stability, safety or efficacy - it's a lot of responsibility.

    That's why, for three days of the year, in-cosmetics Asia offers a place for suppliers of personal care ingredients and cosmetic creators to come together...

    So you and your R&D team can learn and source solutions from Asia that facilitate international success - both for you at the bench, and your business.

  • Testimonials:

    • Sri Lanka has a small population we do not manufacture a lot of the chemicals and ingredients, to find a suitable partner for our requirements is the challenge, the show has given us the opportunity to overcome that challenge. We need this type of show and exhibitions to meet these suppliers and learn about technologies.
