Suceed in 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.

    • The lab session I attended introduced me to a stirring mechanism I wasn't familiar with, as well as other new techniques. I will definitely implement much of what I've learnt back in my business - it was a very useful experience.
