Personal Care Sustainability


The new area is called ‘Sustainability Corner’ and will be set up as an interactive educational space. Visitors are invited to use specially designed display pods to explore the latest trends and developments in personal care sustainability.

AAK’s pod, along with a live presentation on April 5th, will showcase the Kolo Nafaso direct sourcing program that helps to empower women, improve livelihoods and secure the future of shea in West Africa.

Formulating Sustainable Products


In addition to Sustainability Corner, lipid experts from AAK will be available throughout the show at stand S30 to demonstrate how the company’s natural ingredients can help formulators to create more sustainable products.

Visitors to the stand will be able to experience for themselves new innovative formulations addressing two growing trends – environmental protection in face care, and conditioning and styling of textured hair.

Studies to Support Sustainable Choices


New studies will also be available at its stand showing how featured ingredients developed by AAK outperform synthetic and placebo benchmarks, providing cosmetics brands with the tools they need to move beyond less eco-conscious ingredients readily used.
