According to the organisers behind the conference, Summit Events, sun protection & anti-ageing are the top skin care concerns of consumers in Asia-Pacific.
Sun protection has long been an area of concern on the region, particularly as Asian skin tends to produce more melanin when exposed to UV rays and can be easily damaged and prone to hyperpigmentation.
It is the largest contributor to sun care products, and the category is expected to increase by a constant value CAGR of 3% over the next 5 years as consumers become more aware of the harmful effects caused by UV rays, such as skin ageing and skin cancer.
Latest developments revealed
From the 8th- 9th July at the Singapore Hilton hotel, the conference will act as a platform for discussions on the latest sun protection methods and technologies, pollution, skin lightening products, as well as regulations that affect the development, advertising claims, and sale of sun protection and anti-ageing products in Asia.
“Based on the feedback we received, it was evident that the Asia focus of our last conference resonated well with delegates,” says Managing Director, Sue Trousdale.
“With that in mind, we are engaging more Asia-based speakers for the 2015 edition, and delegates can expect content that has greater relevance in addressing the Asia personal care market.”
