Singapore, May 9, 2016 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, is going to take part in the Indonesian Cosmetic Ingredients (ICI) exhibition due to take place in Jakarta International Expo, Indonesia on May 11-13, 2016. Making its debut to the Asian audience will be the BeautyForward® trend guide for personal care through Clariant's extensive industry knowledge and insights. In addition, its locally produced Halal certified range of ingredients will also be highlighted during ICI.

With thriving economic growth and an expanding middle-class in the region, the personal care and cosmetic industry in Asia is picking up strong pace of growth. Learning about latest trends and customer preferences holds the key in coming up with the right products, at the right place and the right time.

Welcome to the NEW: BeautyForward® With BeautyForward®, Clariant highlights to the personal care industry insights and reports gathered to show a glimpse of the future through new individuality, new every-day lives, behaviors and rituals. New products and textures from Clariant dedicated to the personal care industry will be launched through BeautyForward® during ICI featuring the four aspects of CARE, PURE, DARE and LOOK of beauty.

"BeautyForward® is an exciting concept and an attempt we are making to provide solutions to our customers to develop products which meet the current and upcoming trends in the personal care market. Making its debut in Asia during this year's ICI exhibition, I'm confident that it will provide our customers with useful insights and inspirations," says Vipul Bhatt, SEAP Regional Sales Head for BU ICS, Clariant.

Halal certification for better accessibility in Asian market In the fast-growing Asian market, Clariant's recent Halal certification received for its Tangerang facility in Indonesia has certainly given another huge boost in reaching the Muslim community in the region. In countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia, where there is a large and growing Muslim population, much of the cosmetics and home care industries is shifting the source of raw materials to those that are vegetable based or even aiming for Halal-certified ingredients which are perceived as safer and milder.

The total market size for Halal personal care ingredients in Southeast Asia is estimated at around CHF74 million in 2015, with room for 20% growth in the coming years, representing a major growth and differentiation opportunity for cosmetic and personal care companies operating in the region.

In addition to the above-mentioned, Clariant will also showcase during ICI the following exciting series of products dedicated to the personal care industry in the region.

Caring for every need: Vivimed's complete portfolio for exceptional care Clariant will also feature at ICI one of its newest portfolio additions, acquired recently from the established Vivimed Lab Limited from India to reinforce its commitment to grow in order to meet the personal care industry's needs. Vivimed enjoys good reputation of being able to offer complete care to the personal care industry through its wide product portfolio within the sun, skin, hair and oral care range, as well as anti-microbial preservatives. The acquisition has strengthened Clariant's portfolio with actives to formulate broader solutions such as sun protection in the rapidly growing market in Asia.

Feeling the touch of nature: Beraca Rainforest Specialties for luxurious sensations Beraca Rainforest Specialties is a line of vegetable oils and butters made from sustainably sourced active ingredients that are manufactured in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, with a focus on health and wellbeing. Among the series is Beraclay Amazonian White Clay, which is made of natural clay from Brazil collected from the mouth of the Amazon River, rich in organic nutrients. It provides a cooling sensation in skin care formulations and enhances the sensory profile of emulsions.

Clariant's team of technical and customer service teams will be on hand at their booth at Hall D2 of the Jakarta International Expo during the 3-day show of ICI to explain details of these products and help visitors find the best solutions for their needs.
