Sustainable Cosmetics Summit in NYC May 15-17

April 1, 2014

The North American edition of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit will feature advances in green materials and the potential of digital marketing. Taking place in New York City, May 15-17, the summit will bring together CEOs, founders and senior executives from across the beauty industry to discuss sustainability issues.

A wide range of agricultural-based ingredients are making their way into personal care applications, however the move is raising many technical and sustainability concerns, according to Organic Monitor, organizer of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit. A dedicated session on green materials will discuss the opportunities provided by, and challenges associated with, such ingredients. Industry leaders will assess the environmental footprint of agricultural-based materials, asking whether green always means better for consumers and the environment.

Aveda and Seventh Generation, two of the largest green brands in North America, will present during the Sustainability Best-Practices session.
