Advancing in the age of sustainability and well-being

Each year the in-cosmetics Formulation Summit focuses on the latest cosmetics trend and in 2021, the focus was "Advancing in the age of sustainability and well-being". At each live conference, we aim to provide a highly educational learning experience. As a delegate, you will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with globally renowned speakers and network with your peers.

Join the conversation

In response to this increasingly growing trend, the in-cosmetics Formulation Summit delved into the various aspects of “good” science, that enabled formulators to create products that are fantastic for both the consumers’ well-being and the planet.

As a delegate at the 2022 summit, you can look forward high-level talks and presentations, delivered by industry experts, that address both the formulation challenges and opportunities in developing personal care products. Be involved in the conversation and together, we can continue to develop the industry for the better.

Areas that were covered in 2021

Delegates heard from top speakers and experts in their field, contributing to new ways of formulating..


How mental well-being can affect your physical appearance and why developing products that deliver true holistic efficacy could be the way forward for beauty.


Learn how you can implement better sustainability practices from debunking plastic myths to understanding more about much-debated palm oil.

Cosmetics claims

As the line between cosmetics, biocides and sanitising agents becomes thinner, confusion around safety and regulations widens. Our speakers dig a little deeper.

The pandemic & consumer behaviour

From soap to sanitisers, demand for these “hero” products has rocketed, leaving startling gaps in the supply chain – so what is the solution?

The summit provides us with the perfect opportunity to discuss new ideas and create new experiences for consumers as it gathers inspirational people from all over the world to form a great melting-pot of creativity and ideas.

We wanted to come to the summit as we thought the theme was an important trend in the industry. We want to get a deeper understanding of what customers want and we heard some brilliant speakers speak on a broad range of topics.

I have found the summit to be very informative and useful for my business, an indie brand. The speakers have been great and I especially enjoyed the talks on the application of AI.

The summit was definitely worthwhile coming to and is very well-organised. In the future, I would perhaps like to see a focus on changes in regulations.

Anna Williams
Technologist, Solent

I was attracted by the personalisation theme and have not been disappointed! I have found the presentations to be very helpful for my formulation company and was especially interested in the talks by Andy Postles and Vivienne Rudd.
