Topic: Upcycled Ingredients: The Next Frontier in Developing Sustainable Personal Care Products

It is increasingly clear that our production and consumption of goods are not sustainable. It's also clear that, with an expanding middle-class population around the globe, changing consumption patterns will be difficult. Industries from fuels to food to beauty must therefore look at reshaping their supply chains and production processes. 

The beauty industry has made great strides in commitments to producing less waste (and recycling the waste it produces). The next frontier, with the potential to provide not only great brand opportunities but also functionality and cost benefits, is upcycling -- turning waste material into high-quality ingredients for beauty and personal care products. 

Speaker: Tony Abboud, GM Personal Care & Beauty -Renmatix

Tony Abboud is working at the forefront of upcycling in the beauty industry. He will discuss the benefits, opportunities and challenges of upcycled ingredients, and inform the audience of efforts from companies such as BASF and Renmatix to academic teams at universities around the globe to turn low-value waste products into multi-functional ingredients that deliver more sustainable, plant-based, cost-advantaged, high-performing alternatives to traditional ingredients.
