Cosmetics and personal care development is moving full steam ahead, according to Rachel Grabenhofer, Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) managing scientific editor. "Hard lessons were learned in recent years that forced us to think differently and deliberately, disciplining us to innovate with excellence," she wrote, in the newly revealed and digitized 2023 media kit.

She added, "...[W]e’re successfully adapting to new realities, enabled by technology and driven by changing consumer priorities. Today, suppliers are designing solutions with sustainable credentials, proven efficacy and sensory performance. Marketers are crafting products that embrace ethics, validate value and eliminate excess. C&T aspires to boost all their pursuits with content that informs and excites."

As such, the year 2023 will uncover unprecedented innovation in cosmetic science. It will re-envision cosmetic formulation and enlighten product development in the following monthly highlights and others; we hope you'll join us.
