New York City, United States

The fourth North American edition of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit will take place in New York city at the Intercontinental Barclay New York on May 16-18th.

Focal themes of this new edition are novel green ingredients, marketing developments and consumer behavior. For the first time, a summit will look at ways of reducing the environmental footprint of cosmetic products by using green ingredients and sustainable consumption.

SGS is pleased to announce that SGS expert Xavier Vital, Ecodesign Manager at SGS North America, will explain how the environmental footprint of personal care products can be measured by life-cycle analysis. The presentation will explain how the rinse-off products (shampoo, soap,etc.) contributes to the life cycle impacts of personal care products and will open the discussion on how the design can contribute to the reduction of the impacts of the use phase.
