Shona Thomson, Marketing Manager for in-cosmetics Global, says:

“For several years, in-cosmetics Global has recognised an unprecedented increase in the presence of indie brands and, the incredibly successful launch of our first ever Indie Trail in 2019 is testament to how influential and important this area of the industry has become. Furthering our support and acknowledgement of this dramatic shift in the market, we couldn’t be happier to officially partner with Formula Botanica for our 30th birthday.


This year’s educational programme will benefit from three insightful and informative Formulation Lab training sessions with Formula Botanica’s Head of Research & Formulation, Timi Racz, which will each be fantastic additions to our existing line-up. Timi’s understanding of organic ingredients and formulations is second-to-none, making these sessions unmissable for small brands looking to widen their ingredients understanding and perhaps break into new areas.”

The Indie Beauty Trail

in-cosmetics Global hosts a special trail for ingredient suppliers that can provide lower Minimum Order Quantities, narrowing the gap between the mainstream and Indie beauty industry. This makes the show accessible for indie beauty entrepreneurs and anyone wanting to start their own beauty brand. It is an ideal venue to network and research ingredients as well as gain inspiration for your brand. Formula Botanica is proud to be the official partner for this year’s Indie Beauty Trail at in-cosmetics Global.
