January 2017
A princely EUR 13.6bn was spent on beauty and personal care by consumers in Germany in 2015. Estimated figures released by the German Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery and Detergent Association (IKW) headquartered in Frankfurt (D) indicate that the industry’s turnover was EUR 200m (1.6 %) higher in 2016 than in the previous year. The range of organic and natural cosmetics available is largely responsible for this. According to an analysis carried out by the Düsseldorf-based (D) market research institute Information Resources GmbH (IRI), natural cosmetics are still the main growth driver in the cosmetic and personal care segment. This is because products from the “laboratory of nature” meet consumers’ needs for “cocooning” and well-being in our fast-paced day and age, but also for naturalness and sustainability. From 15 to 18 February, the natural cosmetic industry will be coming together at VIVANESS, the International Trade Fair for Natural Personal Care, in Nuremberg. More than 250 manufacturers will be presenting products on the B2B platform.
July 2016
In 2016, VIVANESS celebrated its 10th anniversary, impressing with 250 exhibitors as well as a large number of highlights and new additions such as the stage programme “VIVANESS on stage” and the first sponsored pavilion for young innovative companies, which were German “newcomers”.The VIVANESS Congress moved into hall 7A and, together with the BIOFACH congress programme, once again saw roughly 7,000 attend over 100 individual events. One of the visitor magnets of the VIVANESS Congress was the presentation by rheingold salon on customer demands between luxury and naturalness. We spoke to Rainer Pfuhler, a marketing expert and company spokesman for rheingold salon after the exhibition. His advice to the natural and organic cosmetics industry is that “it should have the confidence to put itself in an even stronger and more prominent position, because psychologically it can fulfil several functions at the same time for people”.
