CosmeticBusiness offers Inspiration and new Ideas for the Cosmetics Industry

Preparations for CosmeticBusiness 2023 are in full swing! With about five months to go before this industry get-together opens its doors, the exhibition space is almost fully booked. More than 300 exhibitors and companies from over 20 countries will present their products and solutions for cosmetics production and packaging from 14 to 15 June 2023 at the MOC in Munich. Product developers can look forward to wide-ranging and inspiring innovations, particularly from new exhibitors in the ingredients sector. Additional features such as the Spotlight novelty show, the tried and tested theme routes and a varied conference programme round off the event.

From ingredients and private label production to filling and packaging machines as well as the full range of packaging materials, CosmeticBusiness offers all the building blocks of cosmetics production and packaging in one location. "Here at CosmeticBusiness, we can really feel the positive developments in the industry. Exhibitors are eager to get back to networking, making new contacts and more than anything, meeting in person again. The rapid pace of exhibitor registrations over the past few months is evidence of that", notes Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. "The trade show is the perfect event for decision-makers from the cosmetics industry. It is the only place they can find the entire knowledge and experience of the full supply chain concentrated in just one location."

CosmeticsBusiness continues its Growth Trajectory

At CosmeticBusiness, around 300 exhibitors and represented companies from over 20 countries will be showcasing their expertise across more than 11,000 m² of exhibition space. Alongside all the important German suppliers, international cosmetics suppliers mainly from France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Poland will be exhibiting their products. 34 per cent of the registered exhibitors are from outside Germany. Registrations include over 40 new exhibitors as well as established industry players who missed the last two trade shows due to the pandemic. These include companies in the colour cosmetics sector such as bomo trendline, HCT Group, and HCP Germany Cosmetic. The Frike Group from Switzerland and Cosmetic Service will be presenting their service portfolios as contract manufacturers for cosmetics brands for the first time. Exhibitors specialising in filling and packaging machines include PackSys Global from Switzerland and Zigler from Poland. The logistics service provider DACHSER will also be exhibiting for the first time.

Focus on Innovations and New Products

The well-established SPOTLIGHT novelty show, which shines a light on new products, is the first stop for visitors looking for inspiration and the latest trends. In the Innovation Corner in hall four, new products and innovations by exhibitors will be impressively presented in glass display cases. The new products on display are also indicated by the Innovation Route label in the online Exhibitor Directory, which leads visitors straight to the relevant exhibitors' stands.

Start-ups with their innovative solutions will also provide the industry with fresh inspiration. Players who have only recently entered the market and are exhibiting in the Innovation Corner include Bio Plastics Recycling GmbH, which specialises in recycled plastics for cosmetics packaging.

The accompanying two-day conference programme rounds off the features at CosmeticBusiness with lectures on trends and the latest developments in the cosmetics supplying industry. Programme details will follow in April.

Wide Range of Ingredients

A particular source of inspiration is the Ingredients Exhibition Area in hall two. This year it is even larger, offering developers a broad range of suppliers. A quarter of the over 40 new exhibitors will contribute to expanding the range of active components, fragrances and other ingredients. Companies such as Azelis, Berg + Schmidt and Kreglinger will have their portfolio on display at CosmeticBusiness. As part of the conference programme, Professor Jessica Freiherr from the Fraunhofer IVV will speak on the effects and significance of fragrances in cosmetics products.

Sustainability as a Driver of Innovation in the Industry

From ingredients to packaging, sustainability concerns are accelerating breakthroughs in the cosmetics industry at a pace never seen before. Changing consumer behaviour with its focus on more sustainable products demands intense effort and tremendous innovative power from the cosmetics industry and its suppliers.

Numerous exhibitors at CosmeticBusiness will present sustainable solutions. Along the Green Route, visitors can discover sustainable products and solutions such as the innovative new cosmetics packaging offered by Holmen Iggesund from Sweden. In cooperation with Swedish technology supplier Yangi, they have developed a process for manufacturing three-dimensional packages from cellulose fibres. The moulded cellulose fibres are intended to replace solid plastics in cosmetics packaging.

Visitor Registration Opening in March

Starting in early March, visitors can use the CosmeticBusiness website to secure their tickets to the trade show, which will be held from 14 to 15 June at the MOC in Munich.
