Anti-aging cosmetics: What innovations for tomorrow?

Date: Tuesday, 15th of October 2013, from 8:30 to 12:30
Locality: PhytoArk  Sion-Conthey (map)


The anti-aging cosmetics will be a real challenge for companies in this sector. Both ingredient suppliers and brands shoud increase their efforts to differentiate themselves in the market. Innovate, develop and create added-value will be the master words to meet consumer expectations and trends. In this context, niche products offering better quality services seem to be more attractive.

  • How market trends are they perceived and interpreted by cosmetics manufacturers ?
  • What are the new targets and the new technologies developed ?
  • What are the constraints of the future ?

The next The Ark Forum will precisely recall these issues. It will be the opportunity to discuss the topic, but also to discover the new PhytoArk technological site

Free entry but registration required until the 14th of October 2013. Language: French or English
