About in-cosmetics Global

What is in-cosmetics Global?

The mission of the in-cosmetics Group is to enable the global personal care ingredient community to interact, conduct business, network and learn, whether face-to-face or online.

in-cosmetics Global is the leading global event for personal care ingredients. Celebrating the best in cosmetic science, this distinguished gathering unites preeminent personal care ingredient suppliers (exhibitors) with accomplished finished product manufacturers (visitors) to inspire the cutting-edge cosmetics of tomorrow.

As the portfolio’s flagship event, the show seamlessly alternates between Paris and other prominent European personal care capitals and continues to grow in popularity year after year. Our most recent edition in Barcelona in March 2023 served as a testament to this, attracting 10,799 unique visitors and hosting an impressive total of 20,902 attendees from across all corners of the world.

With science at its heart, in-cosmetics Global is the leading international launchpad for pioneering and avant-garde breakthroughs in the personal care industry. The event features an expansive range of ingredients, fragrances, lab equipment, testing, and regulatory solutions across a spectrum of visionary suppliers whom are exclusively exhibiting at in-cosmetics Global.

Our three pillars at in-cosmetics Global:


At in-cosmetics Global, science is at the heart of everything we do. Using our platform personal care ingredient suppliers and creators connect to discover, explore and learn about innovations to inspire the next wave of cosmetic creations. 


As the leading global launchpad for cutting-edge and pioneering personal care ingredients and raw materials. in-cosmetics Global is a hub for personal care innovation, inspiring the cosmetic creations of tomorrow and driving excellence in cosmetic science.


As an event, we are committed to implementing sustainable practices to mitigate our ecological footprint, all while actively fostering sustainable development. We support the efforts the industry is taking to make a more sustainable personal care industry.

Decarbonising the events industry, together

At RX, we are serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our shows and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being Net Zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

In 2023 we will publish our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our shows. Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future.

This is my first time at in-cosmetics Global and I love it! I’m here to pick up some new suppliers as well as meet existing ones, and it’s great to meet people face-to-face which we haven’t been able to do over the past few years. Trends in the industry will continue to be sustainability, and also free silicone replacement is really big. Natural and vegan trends are also important. In the make-up industry, there are two trends and it's either one or the other, no in-between: minimalism or extravagant. Everyone is here at the show, it’s amazing! I’m able to catch up with suppliers from Africa, China, America and countries from all over the globe. It’s amazing.

The latest ingredients from the market are here at in-cosmetics Global, with the market constantly moving everyone is focussing on green. It is amazing to be here – there are things you couldn’t even think of happening! The show helps to innovate and integrate new technologies into upcoming products to make them exciting. The Sensory Bar is a very important aspect because sensory evaluation is so helpful, it is what it boils down to for the consumer, it is all about the first touch.
