CCUK was delighted to collaborate with BioVale on our joint event on sustainable ingredients for the cosmetics industry on February 16. Kirsty, Jane and Alastair were all in attendance to network and participate at the event.
CCUK Director, Jane Evison commented, "This was our first in-person event ever, due to the pandemic and I was very pleased that it was in my home county of Yorkshire! It was so good to see real people in the curated speed-dating activities, networking and creating business connections. The bioeconomy is helping to shape the future of sustainability in the beauty industry, where the global natural products market is continually evolving and growing. However, there is a real need for knowledge transfer along the supply chain about how to get into the market competitively and what are the common requirements and hurdles. Being originally founded in the chemicals sector, CCUK is ideally placed to act as a bridge between the bioeconomy and the cosmetics industry, bringing together industry experts and potential new ingredient suppliers and feedstock sources and facilitating new business and manufacturing connections. Our work with Biovale is a great example of how this can be a success in practice and we look forward to being able to collaborate again.
