The UK beauty industry employs over a million people and women aged 18-34 are the biggest influencers of the market – innovation in the industry is accelerating with increasingly sophisticated consumer demands and beauty trends now have an average lifespan of 2-3 years, which means that product developers are working overtime to keep up.

The Cosmetics Industry is highly regulated – tests for safety, stability and efficacy are a must if you want products to hit the shelves here in the UK and abroad. How do you go about product testing? Or in fact keep updated? The Cosmetics Cluster UK, (CCUK) is hosting a conference to take companies on a testing journey.

Driven by over 80 CCUK associates and members – testing was seen as a key area for exploration, Dr Gill Westgate, CCUK chair, explained: “Companies can gain immediate business benefits – by learning from industry experts to improve their own skills and knowledge, network with like-minded individuals and share best practice. Perhaps collaborate on projects too?

“The conference will ensure that delegates that are new testing understand the key principles and that seasoned product formulators are updated with key trends in the testing market and are able to speak to experts about any challenges they face”.

The journey will cover topics such as; do you need to test? future trends, needs for product launches, claims support and animal testing.  Plus, the opportunity to seek specific advice in expert-led round-table discussions.

The conference takes place at The Meeting Space, BioCity, Nottingham on the 18th July 2018.  The event will be invaluable for formulators, brand owners and retailers, in fact, anyone involved in the process of developing, defining and approving cosmetic claims and product launches.

The Humber Environmental Managers held their annual conference on Wednesday 6 June 2018 at The Ropewalk, Barton.

Tony Edwards, Chairman of the Humber Nature Partnership & CATCH’s Humber Environmental Managers Forum, opened the conference.  At the end of 2017 the Government published its Industrial Strategy and Clean Growth Strategy followed in January 2018 by A Green Future:  Our 25 year plan to improve the Environment.

The conference considered the implications of these documents for the sustainable management of the Humber Estuary and its environs, and hear about practical initiatives that are in progress.  The event was sponsored by Clarke Energy and was held as part of Humber Business Week.

Richard Kendall, Executive Director of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership gave a presentation on Clean growth and the Humber industrial strategy.  Clean growth will be a priority for the Humber and will need to be business led, ambitious and distinctive to the Humber and our strengths, building on the success of the Energy Estuary.  The LEP have reviewed their current priority sectors and are developing a new approach that recognises the important links between sectors and opportunities for more integration and growth in the Energy Estuary industries.  These ideas have been captured in a new document Blueprint for the Humber, launched in Humber Business Week.  link here

Then followed a presentation on the 25 Year Environment Plan from Adam Stewart, Policy Adviser, Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.  The plan sets out the vision, goals and actions to improve the environment.  The plan includes measures for using and managing land sustainably, increasing resource efficiency, and reducing pollution and waste.  A chemical strategy will be published at the end of this year.

After a networking break delegates heard from Trevor Thompson, Chief Engineer at Integrated Green Energy Solutions about the new development outside Grimsby to  convert end-of life, non-recyclable plastics into road ready fuel.

Marcus Asquith, Partnership Director for Engie with North East Lincolnshire Council gave a presentation on the South Humber Industrial Investment Programme working with the natural environment.

The speakers took questions and the event closed with networking and a buffet lunch.
