Not only did the show itself set a new precedent, at the end of the show, travel conditions involving a large cloud of volcanic ash over much of northern Europe marked a new global phenomenon stranding several industry members abroad—including Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine staff members. Everyone did the best they could to make do with the situation and as of this report, airports and travel conditions are promising and travelers will soon make their way home.
In a Twitter feed to industry members, Grabenhofer reported to the industry, “While the dust has settled from the show, it's still in the air over much of Europe … So since we're still grounded in Paris, we plan to keep an eye out for what strikes us as potential upcoming ingredient trends.” C&T magazine editors reported on a few interesting ingredients in products sold in Paris, including: bamboo, almond, grapefruit, apricot, coffee and agave sap. In one product, pomegranate, collagen boosters and tourmaline crystals were used to match the antiaging effects of laser treatments. Another launch based on shiitake and wild apple tree stem cells was said to stimulate sirtuins and hair stem cells to preserve and grow hair.
The show itself was the most successful one to date, and packed with meeting after meeting with high profile clients and a bustling show floor. It’s a sure sign that the industry is ready to take the next step. Here’s hoping that the international airlines are as well.
