Fragrance is full of emotion & power. It can stand for a movement, a tradition or even a sub culture. It can offer flashbacks to a happy childhood, the resurrection of a loved one or the transportation to a life we can only imagine.
Scent is such a powerful tool - but how has history influenced our fragrance tastes and trends over the past 70 years?
This session will provide an insight into how the twentieth century has influenced the way we use fragrance today and what we can expect in the future.
The rise of the social influencer and how this impacts the future of fragrance

Where does innovation start? We know that a speedy development process is one of the key ingredients to a brand or product’s commercial success today.
This presentation will explore the art of identifying consumer needs in the early days and making the connection to technical solutions at pace. We will also share a few simple steps to apply ‘reverse innovation’ - a different approach to the one currently used in product concept development.
Sun and pollution cause important damages to the skin. As a unique quencher, antioxidant and selective chelator, Synoxyl® AZ provides 24/7 skin defense & skin repair. It is clinically demonstrated to elevate skin defenses by 40% and reduce photoaging by 29% in less than 30 days.
In recent years, the trend for “Green Beauty” has become super mainstream with more and more producers and consumers looking for beauty and personal care products that are ECO friendly and sustainable. This is what inspired us to look beyond our customers desires and create formulations that not only protect your skin but also protect the environment. We based our formulated solutions on the concept of Clean, Pure & Simple.
Our Chantilly Cream is a shower based whipped cream presented in an aerosol format that allows you to measure the exact amount of product you need to wash and moisturise your skin while reducing waste CLEAN
Most of the ingredients involved in our formulations are nature based with the Chantilly Cream in particular only containing certified ECOCERT constituents PURE
We believe that the Cosmetics market is looking for less ingredients in formulations therefore we developed a formula that contains less than 10 naturally based ingredients SIMPLE
During the Inspire Presentation Brenntag will show you as a leading international distributor of a comprehensive range of cosmetics ingredients, how we manage to recognise market trends at an early stage and how the Brenntag formulation team responds to those trends. Brenntag will emphasise on the Concept Clean, Pure & Simple and illustrate how we managed to meet our customer requirements.
Recent cosmetic trends have pushed the industry in the direction of what has been loosely termed as “natural products”. While this term sounds good from a marketing perspective, the definition is not clear and means different things to different individuals and organizations. During the course of this presentation, we’ll explore the raw materials that makeup colorants and what customers are actually seeking when the use this loaded terminology.
An overview sharing history and evolution of hair products within an industry sector catering to Afro hair; and how developments in products as it relates to perception, ingredients, reach and target audience have transformed to become inclusive solutions to the diverse needs of textured hair.

PIIDesign focuses on marrying the creative and technical worlds together.
In every culture hair is an integral component of one’s beauty, especially for women. Currently the hair care and styling industry is worth over 87 billion USD and set to reach over 202 billion USD by 2024 (www.statista.com/statistics/254608/global-hair-care-market-size/).
In modern society where the demographic is multi-cultural we can clearly see the cross-cultural styling trends evolving. This will open up the hair industry to create exciting cross-cultural fusions.
In this demonstration you will observe how certain products that are currently targeted towards a particular demographic, can be used in others, which will lead increased revenue opportunities when marketed appropriately.
The session today will cover a look back at some older “blast from the past” formulations and raw materials up dated for a new audience, a look at current trends and formulations which sit well in the “here and now” and some “bright” ideas for future formulations.
The Trichological Society – What is it all about? A relatively young society advancing the understanding of trichology and matters related to hair and scalp diseases and disorders.
How the society may be able to help you. Open your eyes to the many and varied careers related to hair and scalp problems.
Dr Shahmalak will give a presentation about eyelash and eyebrow transplantation and its effect on patients.
Brief overview of a pioneering surgery and the benefits to patients
The skin as our largest organ hosts approx. one million bacteria per cm². This sounds scary? Maybe... But IT’S A GOOD THING! Millions of tiny organisms define our skin flora and play an important role in skin’s functioning. This explains a new skin health trend using ingredients strengthening commensal skin bacteria. Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH offers a carefully selected active ingredient derived from a hero probiotic, the lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus! It supports a healthy appearance of the skin by stimulating the growth of selected beneficial bacteria in order to keep and restore the natural balance of the skin.
Mycosporine like amino acids (MAA) have potential as natural biocompatable sunscreens
Solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) has adverse effects on human health such as sunburn, skin cancer and photoageing. The outcomes are the result of molecular damage such as DNA photolesions and oxidative stress. The use of sunscreens can prevent short term and long term adverse effects, as well as damage to DNA1. Synthetic sunscreen filters are designed to be stable. This may result in their accumulation in fragile marine ecosystems and damage to marine species2. This raises the urgency of developing biocompatable sunscreens and one option is the development of algal mycosporine like amino acids (MAA) that are natural UVR filters and antioxidants. Laboratory studies in skin cells and chemical systems have shown that MAA offer protection against UVR-induced damage to DNA and oxidative stress3. They also inhibit the UVR-induced expression of genes associated with inflammation (sunburn) and photoageing. Furthermore, MAA activate skin cells’ natural antioxidant defence mechanisms4. These data suggest that MAA have potential as natural biocompatable sunscreens with the added benefit of antioxidant properties.

In a BASF survey of 100 volunteers, 90 percent reported that stress had a negative effect on their skin, causing it to turn dull and dry. Daily stresses are known to translate into cutaneous stress, with cortisol as its main mediator. Hyalurosmooth® suppresses excessive cortisol release and re-activates the synthesis of collagen I and hyaluronic acid. Bringing the positive effect of a mindful lifestyle – rested from the inside – Hyalurosmooth helps the skin recover its hydration and radiance. Extracted from the Indian Cassia angustifolia, Hyalurosmooth is IECIC listed.
Traditional petro-based ethoxylates are known for their high-performance benefits but are derived from non-renewable sources, making them undesirable for formulators seeking to create more sustainable, bio-based formulations. Now, new bio-based ethoxylates offer the same high-performance benefits while supporting sustainability efforts due to their renewable bio-mass feedstocks. This presentation will demonstrate how using these sustainable materials can enable formulators to meet rising demand for bio-based formulations without sacrificing performance, with formulation examples detailing the impact of bio-based ingredients.
