In November, Cosmoprof Asia, the most prestigious and trendsetting beauty event in Asia, was held in Hong Kong and attracted some 60,000 visitors from 124 countries.

For the first time, SGS exhibited at this prestigious event in the French Pavilion, in the Perfumery, Cosmetics and Toiletries area. In addition to consultancy support during the trade show, our technical experts delivered a series of mini-talks on-site in the stand, covering the cosmetics regulations, preservatives in EU market, claim support/performance testing and more. Visitors showed most interest in cosmetics requirements for the EU and US markets, but also increased interest for markets such as China, Japan and Australia.

More than 2,300 exhibitors from 42 countries, and the high-end educational opportunities presented by industry experts, attracted visitors from countries including China, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, USA, European countries and emerging countries such as Indonesia and Turkey.
