In-Cosmetics: Solar Beauty in Barcelona

In just a few weeks, I’ll be traveling to Spain for the In-Cosmetics conference located in Barcelona on April 17-19. In-Cosmetics is the leading global business platform for personal care ingredients, and will be showcasing a diverse range of innovative ingredients and technologies in the cosmetics industry. Since we focus on educating our readers, I’ll be sharing what I learn at the conference through live posts on and during and after the conference.

This year, In-Cosmetics will be focusing on solar beauty, a topic I am particularly interested in learning more about being a surfer who has spent the greater portion of my life in the sun. I’m on a constant quest for the most safe and effective sunscreen and can’t wait to learn more about new developments in this sector of the personal care industry. We get many questions from readers about sun care and I look forward to being able to report back on the most innovative ingredients and breakthrough research being showcased at In-Cosmetics. One particular exhibit of interest is NanoWorld, which will teach about nanoparticals in sunscreens and their regulatory status around the world.

I’ll be speaking on a press panel the opening day on Reinventing Beauty: Breaking Traditional Dimensions for Growth, where we will debate the findings of the Euromonitor International’s research on the future of the beauty industry including innovation, product positioning and evolving patterns in retail and growth.

What do you want to learn about? Do you have specific questions re: sun care you’d like me to look into? Let me know in the comments below.

Are you going to be there? Leave a comment below; I look forward to connecting in Barcelona!

  1. I'd like to know more on what the safest and most effective sunscreen is. I'm hoping I can still make it to Barcelona as soon as possible.

  2. Being able to report back on the most innovative ingredients. That's good then. Surely the readers would love to hear a lot from that. Enjoy the rest of your day.
