More than 650 exhibitors packed the show floor, including more than 100 companies which had never been to an In-Cosmetics event before.
“It’s really important to meet with suppliers face-to-face and in-cosmetics is a great place to do this. It’s a regular event and I can talk to lots of suppliers. All the people I have spoken with seem pleased with the show so far,” commented L’Oréal’s raw material purchasing manager Philippe Provost.
As a tie-in with 2013’s status as the UN’s International Year of Water Co-operation, the theme of the Paris event was H20. Visitors were invited to follow a trail around the hall that highlighted the new technologies, formulations and product concepts currently employing water innovatively.
