Continuing its live report from the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NY SCC) Suppliers' Day, Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine presents a few highlights from day two of the show, including color technology launches, naturals and preservatives, among others.
While the trend for natural and more eco-friendly ingredients at this year's show may come as no suprise, innovations launched in the color category—beyond just a new shade—are less common and therefore worth noting, especially considering the regulatory hurdles for which they are being designed to address. For instance, as reported on day one, Colipa is expected to release guidance suggesting that cosmetics contain less than 100 ppm heavy metal.
As Suppliers' Day 2011 closed, exibitors and attendees alike left feeling confident that the industry has survived the economic downturn, as evidenced by the continued innovative ingredient launches, which ensure an even better future.
