    Formulation Labs and R&D Tours

    Go behind the scenes and get hands on. Take a tour of this year’s hottest trends and learn how new ingredients can work for your formulations

    XX October 2018 – A highlight of in-cosmetics Asia that must not be missed is the new series of R&D Tours that take place on all three days. The 90-minute tours designed exclusively for R&D professionals offer the opportunity to discover the latest in breakthrough ingredients and technologies in a quick and highly informative manner.

    The R&D Tours were a major success when they launched at in-cosmetics Global. And at in-cosmetics Asia they will run on all three days of the show, each expertly put together and hosted by leading cosmetic chemist Rouah al-Wakeel. Focused on the key topics in the industry today, the three topics will be:

    • Biotechnology Actives (sponsored by Mibelle Biochemistry): An insightful tour with a focus on next-generation ingredients developed using molecularly-identical, natural ingredients

    • Leadership in Microbiomics (sponsored by Givaudan): Harnessing the beneficial nature of the body’s natural bacteria is already familiar in food and drink. Now skincare and cosmetics formulators are using skin-friendly bacteria to create ingredients promising healthier and more radiant skin

    • Natural Ingredients: Although hugely fashionable, these ingredients face strong demand for proof of safety, as well as transparency of sourcing, production processes and use of EWG ratings. This tour looks at a range of new, paraben-free ingredients, and those created without synthetic ingredients and fragrances or nano-particles

    Attendees on the ‘silent tours’ – that take place each day at 10.30-12noon, 13.30-15.00 and 15.30-17.00 – will hear exclusive commentary about the latest ingredients in each area, as well as being able to ask questions throughout the session.

    Learn new techniques in formulation

    Calling all R&D lab team members – the in-cosmetics Asia Formulation Lab sessions will take you exclusively behind the scenes, with top ingredient experts revealing the secrets of their winning formulations.
