Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) Brittany, in partnership with CBB Capbiotek, organizes a brokerage event on 4th July 2018 during COSM’ING (8th edition), an international symposium on cosmetic ingredients and biotechnology. This event will take place in Saint-Malo in Brittany (France) from the 4th July to 6th July 2018.

Growing demand for sustainable products or natural cosmetic actives led the ingredients suppliers to develop many sustainable, performing and innovative biotechnological processes for industrial production of actives or additives. Thus, in the last few years, sustainable ingredients obtained from plant cell cultures (stem cells), fermentation, enzymatic hydrolysis or synthesis reactions appeared successfully on the market and are now present in cosmetic products of many brands.

Since 1998, COSM’ING has become a benchmark event offering deep insights into the latest technological developments and an opportunity for stakeholders to network. During this 8th edition, the following topics will be highlighted through 4 thematic sessions of communications and flash talks:
• Biotools and Bioinspiration
• Bioproduction
• Biosurfactants
• Microbiome and phages
