French companies to exhibit in the ingredients fragrances and testing zones at In-Cosmetics Europe

France is an internationally recognised supplier of raw materials for the cosmetics industry. Certified for their quality and purity, these raw materials comply with the strictest regulations and respect social ethics.  Rich in a range of plant, marine and mineral ingredients as well as chemically derived ones, they appeal to the largest international luxury brands. The French Touch will be represented by 91 French companies on the France Pavilion organised by Business France, at the In-Cosmetics Global trade fair  to be held from 4th to 6th April 2017 at London’s ExCel Center. These companies will be demonstrating their know-how in the Ingredients, Fragrances and Testing Zones of this year’s fair.   New products and key trends In 2015, the global market for cosmetics ingredients was estimated at US$ 9 billion (around £7.39 billion) in the key regions of Europe, the US, Brazil, China, Japan, Southeast Asia and India.  The market is constantly growing and benefits from innovative R&D that enables high-value added active ingredients to be developed. However, companies in the industry must also adapt to continually changing regulations. Many French companies will be launching new products, improved formulas or responding to new trends at In-Cosmetics. We note particular growing interest in protecting the skin from the effects of pollution .  French ingredients suppliers offer solutions that form a screen against pollution by means of a film acting as a second skin. Others rely on active ingredients that are powerful antioxidants and anti-lipoperoxidants, or have anti-glycation or anti-free radical properties , which decrease inflammation, moisturise the skin and act against pigmentation marks caused by pollution. Detox programmes have been developed to counteract urban stress.   Testing, Testing… Creating new active ingredients requires the development of customised in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo biological tests. French laboratories specialised in toxicity testing look for evidence of endocrine disruptors in volunteers (both men and women) . They will be exhibiting in the Testing zone. For the first time, the Fragrances Zone is exhibiting perfumed ceramics made of Limoges porcelain (stand Q50). While the French offering includes a wide range of natural and organic plant, marine and mineral (clay type) ingredients of certified origin, it also bases its offer on their absence of residues , which is greatly appreciated by large brands.  The French build their reputation on very pleasing, light and fluffy textures, the reflective effects of pigments and on colour control thanks to the use of very specialised software. These ingredients are not only intended for the cosmetics industry, but also for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Being environmentally conscientious , some French laboratories use living plant cells by ’milking’ their roots up to six times per year, which preserves the parent plant; others use renewable and biodegradable ingredients. With the help of regional partners such as Bretagne Commerce International , Cosmetic Valley , DEV-UP  and CCI Aquitaine , the Business France  Pavilion (National Agency promoting internationalisation of the French economy) will be displaying the latest French innovations at the 2017 edition of In-Cosmetics Global. All of the participants will be present in three blocks in the South Hall: -    stands C10 – CC10 – C30 – CC30 – C50 and CC50 for Ingredients -    stands P52 to PP57 and on pods PP50 – Q50 – Q51 and QQ55 for Fragrances -    stands D30 and D50 for Testing   For further information please see the catalogue or please contact: Christiane Peslherbe Project Manager Business France Paris Tel: +33 1 40 73 36 90 Press contact UK : Catherine Ryall    

Tidoo flies the eco flag at Natural & Organic Products Europe!

Fran Lambert - 19-avr.-2016 15:30:21

On Monday 18 April, the Business France UK press team had the pleasure of attending the internationally renowned trade show Natural & Organic Products Europe 2016 at ExCeL London as part of an exciting project to promote the promising young French start-up Tidoo. Tidoo was founded in 2013 by Kilian O’Neill and Geoffroy Blondel de Joigny, wholesalers of organic, eco-friendly and ethical products such as eco-friendly nappies and training pants, and organic skincare certified by Ecocert and COSMEBIO. Natural & Organic Products Europe 2016 saw the French start-up showcase its Night&Day and Stand Up ranges and launch its brand new Care range to thousands of key players in the natural and organic sector, including prospective retailers, distributors and specialist media. Business France was delighted to spend time with Tidoo on stand D49 and assist with the promotion of its innovative, environmentally friendly products, all of which received significant interest from visitors to the stand, including independent retailers based both in the UK and abroad and one major British media group. Natural & Organic Products Europe represented Tidoo’s first real exposure to the UK market, and an invaluable opportunity to build meaningful business relationships with key British influencers. The French start-up certainly made its mark on the general public, many of whom were quick to recognise the many strengths of the brand when compared to its European competitors: • Soft, flexible materials that are both dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic  • 100% natural ingredients • Pleasant natural fragrances • Quick-to-absorb creams • Leak-proof • Affordable prices Industry professionals also agreed that there was certainly a gap in the UK market for another eco friendly nappy brand to successfully make a name for itself in independent and mainstream natural and organic retailers. An effective eco-friendly nappy at an affordable price, Tidoo offers a viable alternative to non eco friendly nappies. As winner of the Best Ecological Product 2016 award and, the future is looking extremely bright for Tidoo. Currently available in over 1,000 organic retailers in France, as well as in numerous independent retailers and shops all over the world, Tidoo is now flying the eco flag in the UK, and British consumers can purchase its products online at  and
