24 May 2018 – Its events are a trusted source of formulation know-how for thousands of R&D professionals around the world, and today the in-cosmetics Group has announced the launch of a new initiative. The all-new R&D Club will provide cosmetic chemists from the global beauty industry with yet another opportunity to network and learn.

The Club is in-cosmetics’ first major step outside the events space since its inaugural exhibition 29 years ago. Providing a series of free online training modules and a digital platform to share best practice, it will help international cosmetic chemists enhance their formulation skills and contribute to scientific advancement.

Free to join, members will gain exclusive access to leading experts, including Belinda Carli from the Institute of Personal Care Science; Barbara Olioso from The Green Chemist and Asian regulations luminary Dr. Alain Khaiat, via a closed LinkedIn Group. They will be joined by other industry leaders over the coming months, each of whom will encourage debate and solution finding, and help cosmetic chemists further their knowledge.

R&D Club members will also receive discounted entry to in-cosmetics Global’s highly respected paid-for workshops and the group’s popular autumn Formulation Summit event in London. They will also gain fast-track entry and privileged access to Formulation Labs at in-cosmetics events around the world.

Cathy Laporte, Senior Exhibition Director at the in-cosmetics Group, commented: “With the cosmetic industry being so fast-paced, it is important that the in-cosmetics brand evolves. The Club will provide a platform for R&D teams to have a trusted resource for all their questions and enjoy special benefits at our events to help them fulfil their role with maximum convenience.”

The in-cosmetics R&D Club is now accepting applications, but membership is exclusively granted to R&D staff working for cosmetic and contract manufacturers, as well as private labels. To find out more and to join, visit
