Congress Argument 
Cosmetics lives with its times and constantly seeks to reinvent itself as consumer needs and expectations evolve. To the notions of pleasure, well-being and performance must now be systematically added those of the origin of the raw materials used and of naturalness. Moreover, the geopolitical and environmental changes complicate reliable sources of supply. Challenges faced by cosmetics are therefore numerous, mixing sciences, processes, sourcing, regulations, etc.

Since Antiquity, lipids have been the main ingredients used in the formulation of beauty products whether in their natural form of oils, fats or waxes or their derivatives, which benefit from numerous scientific and industrial advances. Their complex, varied and variable composition requires a perfect characterization in order to better understand their impact in formulation and their performance in application, but also allows to maintain a strong innovation process.

To propose to the consumer a high quality, the lipid materials used in cosmetic formulations must present a perfect stability in their composition, their smell and their colour and come from cultures and processes of extraction and purification eco-responsible.

But these new constraints favorthe appearance of new lipids from new plants, new biotechnological processes, the recovery of waste or even by-products offering cosmetologists immense possibilities for innovation.

The congress Lipids & Cosmetics will highlight 4 topics : 

  • New lipid raw materials
  • Lipids and environment
  • Physiological and cosmetic performance of lipids
  • Innovations in the formulation of lipids
