The one-day roadshow took place at Hotel Nikko in Ho Chi Minh City and provided attendees with the chance to learn more about the latest in personal care product ingredients and trends in the sector.
As a country that imports the vast majority of its chemical and natural ingredients, the roadshow also offered attendees from Vietnam’s leading companies the opportunity to network with cosmetic ingredient suppliers.
Attracted big players
Amongst those in attendance were some of the big cosmetics players including Colgate Palmolive, Estee Lauder, and Procter & Gamble.
The Capturing New Products and Trends roadshow was organised in partnership with the Cosmetic Chemical Association (CCA) in Vietnam and with the support of the Vietnamese Cosmetic Committee (VCC).
Key presentations included a session from keynote speaker Le Chau Giang, vice president of CTFAS, on ‘Opportunities and Challenges for the Vietnamese Cosmetic Industry within the Global Economy’, focusing on infrastructure, know-how, product quality, safety and legislation for the estimated 430 small and medium size cosmetic companies based in Vietnam.
Also included were sessions on Global Consumer Trends by Lubrizol Personal Care, Korean Cosmetic Trends by ActivON, and Calpain inhibitor UJI TEA EXTRACT focusing on Calpain, a calcium-dependent protein that plays a major role in the ageing process, by Nikko Chemicals.
Sarah Gibson, in-cosmetics Asia exhibition director said: “The roadshow has been invaluable in providing delegates with a unique insight into just some of the aspects of what we have to present at in-cosmetics Asia.”
“The roadshow has certainly generated huge interest from attendees and we hope to be welcoming many of them to the show in Bangkok in November.”
The in-cosmetics Asia show takes place this year in Bangkok from 6 to 8 November, and the Cosmetics Design team will be there to cover exclusive content for its new Asia-Pacific website.
