Inside Cosmeceuticals at SupplySide MarketPlace  … More Than Just a Trends Forum


NEW YORK—In just a few weeks, Inside Cosmeceuticals is hosting its Top Trends Forum at SupplySide MarketPlace. If you're looking for the top 10 reasons you should attend too bad; we're only giving you three: Paula Simpson, beauty nutritionist, formulation and branding consultant; Ameann DeJohn, CEO and market development consultant for Ameann Solutions; and Linda Treska, executive director, global product innovation for Laura Mercier.

From 1 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8 at the Javits Center in New York, these three ladies will talk about the burgeoning category of nutricosmetics; proven ingredients from outside the cosmetics area; and safety, innovations and products trends. Did we mention cocktails will be served post-forum?

Topic details include:


Paula Simpson, beauty nutritionist, formulation and branding consultant:

While North Americans are showing greater interest in supplements and functional foods or beverages that claim to lower cholesterol or boost immunity, the “inner route" to beauty remains the road less traveled. To date, major players in the nutricosmetics market range from boutique technical firms to well-established companies with extended “beauty from within" brands. With no central focus and being a fairly new concept within North America, could we be misleading the market on the true benefits of these beauty wellness-based products? While global sales account for more than 90% of nutricosmetics sales, market analysts continue to predict the North American market will be the fastest growing and potentially the most profitable sector within the next five years. This presentation will look at the opportunities and challenges for nutricosmetics within North America, with a brief review of the past challenges, to the future considerations for successful formulations, and most importantly, how to market those products for long term success.
