The day is finally upon us, SkinCare Ingredients 2011 has arrived and will be the first ever VTS event in the cosmetics industry, taking an in depth look at the latest topics and trend in the skin care category.

The event starts today at 2pm CEST, 8am EST – a time that allows for the maximum number of industry professionals from the major European, American and Asia-Pacific markets to attend at any given point in the day.

Conference programme

The conference programme has been designed to touch on all the most cutting edge themes that are driving the market, including the emerging markets, naturals and the ever-growing anti-ageing category.

The programme will kick off with a market overview by Vivienne Rudd of Mintel, who will talk about the latest developments in the skin care ingredients category and how technology is increasingly behind new launches.

Hitting on the naturals area, there will also be a presentation chaired by Cosmetics Design science reporter Katie Bird, about the increasingly important area of green chemistry, a phenomenon that is making the manufacturing process increasingly efficient and eco-friendly.

Two experts from ingredients developer Glycolic will join industry expert Stephen Daniells, senior editor of Nutraingredients USA to give presentations about the growing importance of pre- and pro-biotics in skin care formulations.

There will also be a segment on the emerging markets, chaired by our very own Simon Pitman, and featuring key presentations from Virgina Lee, senior research analyst with Euromonitor and Dr. Martin Rudolph, head of product development at Beiersdorf.

A place to interact

It is also worth mentioning that questions can be directed at the speakers both during and after the presentations, while recordings of the presentations can be downloaded for those who cannot make the event on the day.

The show itself consists of an exhibition hall with 15 sponsored booths occupied by some of the biggest players in the skin care ingredients business, including Evonik Goldschmidt, Cognis, Eastman, AAK, Dow Corning and Lipotec.

You can also keep up-to-date with the social media suite and get involved by tweeting with the #SkinCareIngredients hashtag.
