Formulation Lab: Simulate new product development

  • Share your formulation expertise and showcase your unique creations in our purpose built Formulation Lab® on the show floor.

    Wow R&D professionals and those with a scientific background by creating a formulation that has a noticeable sensory or visual impact. Introduce new techniques that can demonstrate the benefits of your ingredients to show what they look and feel like in a finished product

    Sessions are interactive, so you must factor in some time for your lab participants to try mixing the formulations for themselves. For health and safety you need to work within a maximum heating temperature of 65 degrees Celsius.

    Post-show you will receive the full contact details of your lab session attendees.

  • Snapshot of the 2018 Lab sessions:

    Over two days 146 formulators and R&D professionals joined leading ingredients suppliers in a fully functioning lab to receive hands-on formulation training using some of the latest personal care ingredients on the market.

    These inspirational one-hour sessions provided participants with the opportunity to test what it would be like to work with new ingredients in the lab as they simulated a formulation under expert guidance.

    In 2018 the lab attracted formulators and chemists from: Revelon, Coty Inc, Colgate-Palmolive, Kimberly-Clark and Croda to name a few.

  • What Formulation Lab attendee's had to say:

    • The lab session I attended introduced me to a stirring mechanism I wasn't familiar with, as well as other new techniques. I will definitely implement much of what I learned back in my business - it was a very useful experience.

      • Silk Inc
    • The lab sessions were really enjoyable and invaluable from an information-gathering point of view. I learned a great deal and returning to the Formulation Lab will be top of my list for next year.

      • Linda Zaurrini
      • Lavigne Natural Skincare
    • I attended a brilliant session run by Belinda Carli. It was well explained, I learned a lot and all of it was very useful to take back to my business.
