On July 9, 2017, the attorneys of Conkle, Kremer & Engel attended Cosmoprof North America’s annual exhibition in Las Vegas, both to assist clients and to observe first-hand the latest trends in the beauty and personal care industry. Tens of thousands of professionals attended the three-day exhibition, which featured over 1,150 exhibitors from 38 countries. CK&E attorneys attend to connect with clients and others in the cosmetics, personal care, packaging, labeling and professional beauty markets, to help clients secure distribution agreements, and to learn about the newest industry innovations.
This year, brands dedicated to “green” products were showcased as consumers continue to be interested in eco-friendly beauty and technology. Skincare brands also made a strong showing as consumers have been increasingly interested in anti-aging and other preventative products and technologies. Facial mask and dedicated ethnic products made a particularly strong showing this year.
