“MakeUp in… Sustainable”: huge success of the call for nominations!
The call for the submission of sustainable products, launched by the organisers of the MakeUp in Paris trade show on the theme of Sustainable Development was a huge success among exhibitors.
They were many to answer the call, be it, in the formulation, accessories or packaging sector, to participate to the contest organized by the MakeUp in Paris team and sponsored by Chanel Parfums et Beauté. Ten formulation companies decided to submit a total of sixteen products while twelve packaging and accessory suppliers will present a total of nineteen products.
A big thanks to companies who accepted to take up the challenge and actively participate to this big operation, namely: ABC Texture, ArtCosmetics, BASF, Fiabila, Gotha Cosmetics, ICC, Pharmacos, Regi, Il Cosmetics, Albéa, Baralan, Geka, Homer Color Printing, MKTG, Quadpack, Zignago Vetro, Jepson, Cosmei, Faber Castell, Sleever, FSKorea, Texen and O-PAC.
Many thanks also to the managers and students of the two schools specialised in Packaging (Esepac) and Formulation (Isipca) who are part of the Jury in charge of evaluating products submitted to them, this week, by the suppliers. Three products will be singled out in each of the three categories (Formulation, Packaging, Accessories). The products selected will then be presented to visitors in the MakeUp in sustainable area of the event.
This area, located at the entrance of the show will enable visitors to better understand and therefore better anticipate environmental issues in the “Personal care & Beauty sector”. Chanel Parfums et Beauté, the sponsor of this area, will take the opportunity to introduce its SEP tool developed with the company Pure Project. As part of its Responsible Development approach, Chanel Parfums et Beauté committed its suppliers to assess their company’s CSR performance in order to measure and reduce environmental and social impacts associated with the processing and manufacturing of raw materials and packagings. The tool will be made available as an open source tool, for all suppliers, regardless of their activity and by suppliers of suppliers across the entire supply chain.
