Driven by members’ requests and industry need, the South African Society of Cosmetic Chemists (Coschem) hosted its first skin care actives suppliers’ day on 3 May 2017. The inaugural event took place at the office of the Society in Johannesburg and saw around 90 people attending. 

Coschem member companies that supply skin care actives were invited to take part in the suppliers’ day and no costs were involved in exhibiting. 

Exhibitors included BASF/Botanichem, Carst & Walker, Evonik, IMCD South Africa/CLR, Merck, Millchem, Orkila, Savannah Fine Chemicals, Siyeza Fine Chem, and Vantage Specialty Products. 

One exhibitor commented that the event was an immense success, noting just how valuable it was to take part. Another exhibitor was so impressed with the amount of leads generated at the first suppliers’ day.  

Each and every visitor to Coschem’s skin care actives suppliers’ day was a quality one. They ranged from formulators and product developers to brand owners and manufacturers from the local cosmetics industry. 

Many of the visitors loved the buzz and the opportunity for interaction provided by the event and said they looked forward to forthcoming suppliers’ days hosted by the Society. 

These types of events present the perfect opportunity for buyers and sellers to come together to exchange information of products and ideas for innovation.
