Cosmetics in Contemporary Brazil

May 6, 2014

One-day symposium is set for May 12.

You can never get enough of a good thing, like New York Chapter SCC events. With that in mind, the New York Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists will hold a one-day symposium, "Cosmetics in Contemporary Brazil," on May 12—THE DAY  BEFORE SUPPLIERS' DAY.

The event will be held at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, 515 US Highway 1 South, Iselin, NJ 08830.

A member of the rising economic powers, otherwise known as the BRIC nations and a significant emerging market, Brazil is Latin America's largest economy and the fifth largest country in the world with a population estimated to be about 200 million.  Demographically, Brazil is one of the most ethnically diverse countries and a major consumer of personal care products and fragrances.  Brazil's biological diversity is the largest in the world.  It is blessed with abundant raw materials which can have use in personal care.

As more companies are embracing globalization to reach new customers in the new markets, a greater understanding of consumer preferences, important product types, and regulatory issues in this vast and growing makret is essential.
