The head of Mibelle Biochemistry says the firm will concentrate efforts on skin-ageing research as concerns of healthspan and lifespan come into the spotlight.

Founder and managing director Fred Zülli expressed his growing interest in the topic of healthspan and lifespan, and how it is fuelling the company’s research into the mechanisms of ageing.

With countries such as Japan and Singapore grappling with the burdens of ageing populations, the topic of healthy ageing is driving the development of products that can help us thrive and flourish even as we age.

How to win over… more expressive and mindful consumers in the evolving fragrance category

The fragrance category has evolved to become an essential category for wellness as well as self-expression, according to exclusive insights from major players Coty and L’Oréal, along with a line-up of exciting niche labels.

A decade on, the fragrance consumer now has a heightened appreciation for the art of perfumery.
