Visit in-cosmetics Global

Make the valuable connections you’re looking for

Why visit

In 2021, in-cosmetics Global returns to Barcelona, with 100s of the world’s leading suppliers showcasing their personal care ingredients and innovative technologies. The event welcomes 95% of the world's leading suppliers, such as BASF, Dow, Croda, Ashland, Solvay, Evonik and many more.

R&D specialists and formulators from the likes of Procter & Gamble, L'Oréal, Unilever, Colgate-Palmolive, Beiersdorf, Estée Lauder and Johnson & Johnson visit with a view to discovering the latest trends and solutions in skincare, haircare, suncare, colour cosmetics and much more.

Every year, personal care manufacturers and suppliers - big and small, bulk and niche - return to the event to source ingredients, learn and get inspiration.

We help you to find the people, products and services that you’re looking for, and inspire you to discover those that you don’t yet realise you need. We encourage you to participate in testing brand new products, creating formulations in a purpose built lab, and attending an extensive range of educational sessions.

A smart event.

At the event, your badge will be SMART. Your visitor badge becomes your virtual show bag, a contactless way of exchanging information with exhibitors. No need to carry around tons of business cards, paper brochures, catalogues or flyers. Simply use your smart badge to collect information at the exhibitor stands and feature areas and receive all information by email at the end of each day. In the current world we live in with social distancing, your badge can become a virtual handshake. 

What does this mean for you?

  • No spamming: you receive only the exhibitor information you’re interested in
  • You keep track of which stand you visited
  • You exchange your virtual business card with the exhibitors you visited
  • Contactless: pick up everything you need digitally without any worry

It was my first time at the show and I found so much of it to be interesting from the products and ingredients on show to the educational sessions on offer. It was very well organised and gave me a brilliant chance to network with new and existing contacts.

We first attended in-cosmetics Global in 2018 and thought it was a wonderful event - it gave us a whole year’s worth of product development information! As an indie brand specialising in products for athletes, we are very interested to learn about new ingredients and innovation.

I have been visiting the show for the last 10 years and it’s an excellent event and certainly a very very important show in the calendar for us. The main reason for visiting is to see all the key suppliers in one place and new /smaller companies that haven’t seen before.

This year was my first time at in-cosmetics Global and it was much bigger than I imagined. It was a very elegant show and is elevated beyond other events. I visited in search of ingredients and innovation, and found a lot of new companies that I had not been exposed to before.
