Intertech’s fourth annual decorative cos- metics conference, the Color Cosmetics World Summit, will be held at the Hotel Concorde La Fayette in Paris Oct. 4-6. Ed Faulkner of Sun Chemical will be the conference chair.
“Conference sessions will cover the market drivers and growth outlook for pigments, as well as formulating additives such as substrates, fillers, dispersants and emollients, as well as new ways to test and color match pigments,” said Dan Maiore, conference director. “Presentations will address 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.”
More than 150 delegates are expected to attend the event, which will feature 20 speakers, two panel discussions and two three-hour workshops on manufacturing and formulating topics.
