Neophytou commented, “Growing awareness surrounding environmental degradation and resource scarcity is encouraging consumers to choose beauty brands and products with a commitment to mitigating their environmental impact.
“The realization that a product lifecycle does not end once it is consumed, but rather, once it has been properly disposed of, is catalysing the consumer shift toward recyclable, biodegradable, and even packaging-free products in the beauty industry.
“As a result, it has become increasingly important that brands ensure their product offerings are sustainable from product formulation through to packaging, to appeal to the environmentally-conscious consumer.
“As the sustainability trend gains traction, it is crucial that beauty players find a balance between sustainability and functionality in their product packaging to both differentiate in a crowded marketplace, and ensure brand longevity and success.”
Lia Neophytou’s presentation will begin at 10:30 at the Beauty Forum on the 12th of September 2018.
