The Union for Ethical BioTrade supports the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit 2013.
The fourth North American edition of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit will take place in New York City on 16-18 May 2013. Focal themes of this new edition are novel green ingredients, marketing developments and consumer behavior. For the first time, a summit will look at ways of reducing the environmental footprint of cosmetic products by using green ingredients and encouraging sustainable consumption. With many cosmetic companies preoccupied with ecological impacts, the sustainability initiatives session discusses ways of improving the social footprint of personal care products. How can cosmetic and ingredient firms make a social difference by their products? The summit ends with an interactive workshop that tackles the technical issues associated with using green cosmetic ingredients.
