Intertech’s manager of pigment studies and Summit director Hugh Olmstead issued a call for technical papers for the meeting.
“This conference will focus on the mega-trends, technical innovations and new market opportunities for functional colors and additives in decorative cosmetics,” Dr. Olmstead said. “Conference sessions will cover the market drivers and growth outlook for pigments, as well as formulating additives such as substrates, fillers, dispersants and emollients.”
Presentations will also cover new ways to test and color-match pigments, as well as manufacturing and formulating issues, Dr. Olmstead said. “An emphasis will be given to market trends, growth prospects, new business development opportunities, regulatory and safety issues and the ever-changing definition of beauty and its effect on color cosmetics.”
The summit is expected to attract 150 delegates and will feature 21 speakers, two panel discussions and two 3-hour seminars.
Topics to be submitted for consideration should be sent to Dr. H.D. Olmstead, Intertech Conferences, 19 Northbrook Dr., Portland, ME 04105. More info: (201) 781-9800; Fax: (207) 781-2150; E-mail: info@ intertechusa. com; Website: www.intertechusa.com.
