CESIO Barcelona 2013

Megatrends and New Markets CESIO 2013 is looking forward to new record attendance

More than 1,200 attendants are expected for the ninth CESIO World Surfactants Congress from June 10 - 12 2013 in Barcelona. In 2013, the novel, application-oriented concept for the event will be systematically put into practice for the first time. Thus, the European surfactants organization CESIO (European Committee of Organic Surfactants and their Intermediates) takes into account the wide application range of surfactants. Today already, just over a year before the opening, there is keen demand for the 52 offered booths.

Nearly all products, which are used in aqueous solution, contain surfactants as solubilizer. This imparts an enormous application variability to surfactants, e.g. in detergents and cleaning agents, waterborne lacquers, cosmetics, as auxiliaries for the textile industry and even as additives for road construction. The organizers of the ninth CESIO World Surfactants Congress bring together all the various expectations under the slogan „Surfactants today and tomorrow – mapping the megatrends“.
In addition to the scientific issues, the extensive program of the event goes more closely into aspects of use and business. Thus, the organizers give important thought-provoking impulses to a wide public: Scientists, producers of starting material and finished products and also representatives of legislatorial institutions, they all get the chance for information and close dialogue about the most recent trends by the „Business Convention“ concept. The new biennial rotation makes it easier to keep in touch about spezial topics, such as harmonization of the contents of product labels or the generation of standard basis data as criteria for the „carbon footprint.“
The Congress will also take into account the different consumer behavior of emerging countries, such as Brasil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Thomas Greindl, CESIO president, points out: “The choice of the events location in Barcelona signals our opening towards Latin America. We would interest more guests from Brasil and other emerging regions for the event, because anyhow it will be about their future, their chances for development“.

The European surfactant organization CESIO (European Committee of Organic Surfactants and their Intermediates) was set up in 1974. Today, it represents more than 70 % of the surfactant manufacturers. CESIO addresses issues affecting the European industry of organic surfactants and their intermediates. It aims to develop new scientific knowledge in human health and environment to optimize the safe use of surfactants and to secure Industry’s contribution to the beneficial development of society at large.
In 1991, CESIO initiated ERASM (Environment & Health Risk ASsessment and Management) in response to ongoing risk assessment activities in Europe and subsequently, CESIO companies played an active role in the development of HERA (Human & Environmental Risk Assessment on ingredients of household cleaning products).
In 2009, the total annual tonnage of surfactants produced in Western Europe was 2.8 million Tonnes, the total turnover of the surfactants industry in Western Europe was 3.2 billion € at that time.

This figure was a significant 42% increase over Day 1 visitorship in 2012. Through 15 March, industry players will continued to source for ingredients, network and share knowledge, all under one roof.
Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions (RSE), the organizers of PCHi, also announced details of PCHi 2014, which will be held from 19 to 21 February 2014, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. Just as the China and international C&T markets expect bullish performance in the year ahead, the upcoming seventh edition of the trade event also expects to receive even more attendees.
Lynn XU, Project Manager, commented, “PCHi 2013 opened to much fanfare, and the showfloor was abuzz with activity today. This is a strong indication that, since 2008, PCHi has provided a conducive platform that continually and effectively meets the industry’s needs. In order to enhance a formulator’s experience at future editions of PCHi, we plan to roll out the PCHi Chemist & Formulator Club for PCHi 2014.”

PCHi Chemist & Formulator Club
The new PCHi Chemist & Formulator Club is for industry professionals directly involved in creation of personal care products, who have attended PCHi for at least three consecutive years. Registered chemists and formulators will be entitled to various benefits, including special rates for the PCHi conference, invitations to exclusive networking events, and fast-track onsite registration.
XU shared, “PCHi 2014 is still in the early stages of planning at the moment, but we definitely plan to inject other new elements into PCHi 2014, just as the 2013 show has witnessed numerous contemporary additions.”

Fresh Innovations
Innovation is key in the personal care sector, where brands constantly look to formulate beauty products using the latest and most cutting edge ingredients. This year, PCHi presented a significant 27% increase in the number of booths in the halls, and amongst these 353 exhibitors, 15 companies selected PCHi 2013 as their choice platform to launch some 26 personal care solutions.

New Conference Partnerships
PCHi 2013 featured the strongest conference line-up to date, as new partnerships with established industry bodies and renowned market research firms introduced contemporary educational themes.
Euromonitor and Mintel, provided insight on the latest market trends. In addition, industry experts from local associations - Hong Kong Society of Cosmetic Chemists (HKSCC), International Cosmetics (Asia Pacific) Joint Development Centre (ICJDC) and Guangdong Food & Cosmetics Testing Centre (CTC) - shed light into current issues, recent regulatory changes and the latest formulatory developments.
The 2013 conference program also featured the mainstay New Technology Sessions, which gave all trade show attendees the opportunity to acquire knowledge about the science and technology behind new-to-market ingredients.

NEXUS - A Networking Session for VIP Personal Care Industry Professionals at PCHi
For the first time since its first edition six years ago, PCHi hosted the inaugural NEXUS, a networking session that brought together the top minds in the personal care industry.

China Personal Care & Cosmetics Innovation Awards (CPCIA)
The CPCIA ceremony honored companies that have demonstrated innovation in the designing of new ingredients, and lauded cutting edge formulations that were released in the China market between 2011 and 2013.
22 winning companies featured 24 innovative products and technologies across 10 categories.

SUN PROTECTION CONFERENCE 2013 Sun Protection for the 21st Century

4-5 June 2013, Royal College of Physicians, London, UK - 12th the series of biennial International Sun Protection Conferences

The building blocks defined in the late 20th century such as SPF and UVA standard tests, new sunscreen actives, greater product efficiency, improved product textures and presentations and more, have created technology platforms that should help us launch the next generation of sun protection products.
The general trend towards health and wellbeing is fundamental to what we are trying to achieve in sun protection. The controversy around vitamin D deficiency and sun exposure has raised serious questions concerning possible over-avoidance of sun and the role of sun protection products, whilst on the other hand skin cancer is increasing even though there is a greater awareness of sun damage to the skin. On top of this we have questions of safety of sunscreen actives, in particular the oestrogenic characteristics and the implied effects on water ecology.
It is clear that the sun care industry must continue to improve products and test methods and that we need to work together with other disciplines to create holistic approaches to sun exposure and protection. There are questions on the quality and quantity of sun protection required; the role of regulations as a driver of change, and the development and application of technology to create even better and new types of products.
The Sun Protection Conference will update attendees on the state of the art in sun protection concepts, technology, regulations and product testing and we will discuss and explore the vision of sun protection for the 21st century.
