Seminar Abstract

Nowadays, consumers are turning to ‘greener’ alternatives when it comes to beauty and personal care products. They are demanding products that are Natural, Organic and Sustainable, which do not harm their skin, environment nor society.

In most of the times, marketing terms like Natural or Organic are loosely defined. In this seminar, we will highlight on ISO16128 standard, which provides guidelines on definition of natural and organic cosmetics ingredients. As part of our commitment to create natural, green and sustainable ingredients, our partner, Sino Lion, will share on their ingredients offering in accordance to ISO16128 criteria. These ingredients are made from green feed stocks and made by environmentally friendly process.

With the increasing demand of aging with beauty, peptides are getting popular. Peptides are building blocks which are present in our skin. With further understanding of natural signal system in our skin, topical ppm level of peptides can boost your skin’s beauty remarkably. Our partner, A&PEP, will share on their patented production technology which make peptides affordable in skin care products.

Consumers are continuously seeking out the safest and natural cosmetics due to their increasing health awareness. We hope this seminar will be able to help you ride on this trend!  This is also part of our mission to encourage the use of sustainable green and innovative chemistry to make our lives better, safer, healthier, greener and more beautiful.
