The number of ethical labels is mushrooming in the cosmetics industry. Natural and organic are the most established, however new ones are emerging that represent some ethical, health and / or environmental aspects: Halal, Non-GMO, Fairtrade, Vegan, Gluten-free, etc. A dedicated workshop will discuss recent developments, adoption issues, as well as give future projections. What labels are showing most growth, and what are the opportunities for Asian brands? More details

Since 2009, the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit has been encouraging sustainability in the beauty industry by bringing together key stake-holders and debating major issues. Other editions in this international series will be hosted in Europe (24-26 Oct), North America (May 2017) and Latin America (Sep 2017).
