ISCC Conference Programme 2017

The natural and organic sector is growing globally at a very high rate. Organic and natural personal care products dominated the global demand, and the segment generated revenue is currently exceeding USD 3 billion in 2015. Rising importance of natural ingredients among consumers has led to this growth.

Organic skincare and haircare products are anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 9% from 2016 to 2025. The increasing importance of natural ingredients for providing dandruff protection, hair fall control, and shining effect is expected to have a favourable impact on the industry. Oral care products accounted for over 12% of the global revenue of the industry in 2015. Use of natural ingredients in the formulation of oral care products helps protect against gum disease, periodontal disease, and bleeding gums. Similarly, colour cosmetics are also not been untouched by the natural and organic demand by the consumers specially the hair dyes and other regular use products.

Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness significant gain in natural and organic products over the next few years. Increasing consumption of cosmetic products in emerging economies such as China and India in light of new product launches will fuel organic and natural personal care industry growth.

The organic beauty sector has traditionally thrived on the safe ingredients ticket; certified products must meet strict standards for formulation and manufacture in order to use the much-revered mark of a certified product. There is a huge appetite to know more about what natural and organic actually is. Similarly, there are regulations which need to be understood and complied with, before designing these products.

A more sophisticated focus on positioning, packaging and marketing, puts it in the running for one of the best success stories to come out of the beauty industry for years. And as more conventional brands eye the growth opportunities that organic and natural beauty represents, we can expect to have more chaos in the industry regarding the meaning of natural and organic cosmetics.

The seminar revolves around demystifying the myths and discussing the facts and regulations for the natural and organic products, market trends in this sector specifically personal care and colour cosmetics, evaluator methods and formulation of standardized certified products using natural and organic materials.
