17 French businesses are expected to attend the In-Cosmetics Asia 2019 trade fair
France is a world-renowned supplier of raw materials for the cosmetics industry. Certified for their quality and purity, these raw materials comply with the strictest regulations and the requirements regarding social ethics. They are winning over the world’s leading luxury brands. Offering a wide range of vegetable, marine, mineral and chemical ingredients, 17 French businesses are promoting the French Touch at the French pavilion organised by Business France during the In-Cosmetics Asia trade fair in Bangkok from 5 to 7 November.
According to the Markets and Markets report, the global demand for cosmetic ingredients is expected to reach $17.6 billion by 2020. The global market for cosmetic ingredients has experienced sustained growth, driven by the increased demand for cosmetic products worldwide. This market has the benefit of highly-efficient R&D designed to develop high value-added active ingredients. French businesses are increasingly ingenious in their innovations or improvements to their formulae and in their response to new trends. They must however adapt to regulations that are constantly evolving.
Among the new trends, we note that cosmetic products based on natural and vegetable components are increasingly requested by consumers who wish to ban all toxic products, such as phthalates, phenoxyethanol or even parabens, from their daily lives.
