Given that more and more consumers increasingly question the use of harsh ingredients in conventional cosmetics and beauty products, the Natural Beauty & Spa Pavilion area remains the fastest growing part of the show. With a notable increase of over 25% on last year, the expanded area now encompasses over 100 exhibitors – who together offer the most comprehensive range of natural beauty and cosmetic products on display at any trade show in Europe.
With just six weeks until the show opens, interest in the Natural Beauty & Spa line-up is growing daily. Featuring products from around the globe, first time exhibitors at the show include: Germany’s Florascent – creators of traditional natural perfumes; Sukin, with their new Facial Moisturiser and complete organic skincare range, and the [A’kin] collection from The Purist Company – both from Australia; Frenchtop Natural Care Products – showcasing skin care, hair care and sun protection products from the Netherlands;
New launches for the show include: NATorigin – a new natural eye cosmetic and skin care range, which is being introduced to the UK by Butterflies Healthcare; Kosmea – a totally natural Australian skin care company founded on using the unique properties of certified organic rose hip oil – already a huge success story in Australia; and Gaia Skin Naturals, the leading Australian range of organic baby, men, women and pregnancy skincare products, from distributors 2012 Ltd. New products being launched include: Magic Balm from Boo Boo; Bubble & Balm Liquid Soap – the world’s first natural liquid soap to carry the FAIRTRADE Mark; 100% Organics Moisturiser from 100% Organics; plus the award-winning Skin Blossom Organic Bloom will be showcasing their Complete Care Shampoo and Complete Care Conditioner;
To date, over 500 companies are expected to take part in Natural & Organic Products Europe 2010. The show annually attracts trade buyers from across the world in their thousands, and over 8,000 attendees walked the aisles of Olympia last year alone.
