Ask the Expert – Virtual Personal Care Media Event

Ask the Expert – Virtual Personal Care Media Event

News of inspiring ingredients and trend-focused beauty formulations from Clariant will be popping up in your in-box over the next few weeks.

Designed to put a spring in the step of formulators (forgive the seasonal pun!), they bring more support for higher efficacy, sustainable skin and hair care formulations to target the specific needs of 2021’s emerging trends. 

But it’s all well and good reading about a product. Personal Care is all about creating an experience that stirs the senses. So, we’ve created an exclusive virtual media event that will: 

• Put you in touch with our experts - ready to answer all your questions and share their outlook for the rest of 2021, and

• Go through a sample kit of all our formulation concepts so you can see and feel our solutions “in action” for yourself.

Editors can register now to join the discussions and to get a sample kit before the event.
