Where in the magazine can I get my company listed?
C&T magazine reports on company news in its Trade Talk and Innovations departments. In addition, special sections are featured throughout the year, including Formularies, Encyclopedias and other listings. Finally, finished products are featured in the Cosmetic Counter department.
Trade Talk is a magazine department that reports company news relevant to the R&D side of the cosmetics industry. New appointments/hires, acquisitions, mergers, start-ups, regulatory certifications, anniversaries and more are included here.
Innovations is a place to announce new raw material launches, line extensions, methods, equipment offerings and more. This department includes only the latest innovations in the industry.
Formularies and Encyclopedias are generally a service to current advertisers and run only periodically in the magazine. Formularies run as collections, and occasionally as individual submissions on the Web site and in our e-newsletter, C&T Today. Formularies are used to showcase companies' ingredients in example formulations, while encyclopedias are listings of the latest launches, usually within a given product category. Submissions for formulas and encyclopedias are solicited directly from suppliers, who are given parameters such as the deadline and product category for a given formulary or encyclopedia.
Cosmetic Counter is a unique department in C&T magazine in that it is the only space where manufacturers or cosmetic companies on the "finished" side of the industry can showcase their products. This section includes a writeup about a given product, the claims made by marketing, an image of the product and a full ingredient disclosure from the product package. Those interested in submitting content for this department should submit the complete ingredient list, marketing materials and an image of the product, at least 300 dpi.
To submit information for consideration in the above departments and/or special sections, send an e-mail to Katie Schaefer, assistant editor/Web editor of C&T magazine.
