Natural cosmetics customers are ambitious and today have a variety of information options. Individualization and authenticity are two trends that define the entire cosmetics market. In a world where everything is medial, the concept of beauty is radically changed.
But how is the customer ticking? What determines preferences and purchasing behavior? How to reach and retain the customer? How do social media, influencers, bloggers and co change marketing?
We need your contributions that are inspiring and trend-setting and that show how the industry, especially in small and medium-sized enterprises, can successfully adjust to trends and developments.
Natural cosmetics have long been looking at the content; but ecologically acceptable packaging also plays an equally important role today. "Green" products flood the market. What are the innovative approaches for a positive demarcation of natural cosmetics in the cosmetics market even in the face of numerous initiatives in the cosmetics industry? How can the added value of natural cosmetics be conveyed? What is the significance of R & D? Are there innovations and design-oriented sustainable packaging solutions that can withstand the demands? What are needed are contributions to innovative branding and convincing company "stories" that inspire and present, given the current challenges.
