Today more than ever, the cosmetics industry is driven by the duality that the modern world faces. On the one hand, the industry is developing at an incredible speed with the increase in the number of cosmetic brands and products. On the other hand, we witness an important transformation of consumption patterns resulting in rapid growth in sales of natural, organic and “clean” (responsible) products. In the midst of this situation, we observe that consumers play an essential role in the development of the global cosmetic industry and operating brands. And what they are looking for nowadays is much more than just a product.

Over and above the pursuit of a high-quality product, consumers want to give a meaningful purpose to their consumption - they are increasingly concerned with product claims and certifications. In fact, consumers are looking for transparent products allowing them to have an impactful buying and consumer experience, and for responsible brands to engage in a brand/consumer relationship.

Sustainability is no more just a key challenge for the cosmetics industry, but also a real disruptive element, which resonates with new consumer behaviors and considerations toward a more responsible lifestyle.

Beyond a simple webinar, OLVEA will take you to the heart of its shea butter supply chain in Burkina Faso. Focusing on our flagship product, TrueShea™ , we will demonstrate how natural and sustainable claims can help brands leverage these positive aspects and benefits for their products.
