The Latest News for in-cosmetics

Personal care ingredients and creators will have to wait until 2023 to come together at In-Cosmetics. The new dates for the event are 28.03.2023 to 30.03.2023. The Fira Barcelona Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, will still be housing the highly anticipated event. The venue will not implement coronavirus safety measures due to Spain's government removing the pandemic-related restrictions, including the ones affecting international travel.


in-cosmetics (often referred to in-cosmetics Global to avoid confusion with satellite events) serves as a linchpin for the global cosmetics industry. The international trade fair has first been held in 1990 and has successfully been exported outside Europe, proving the potency of the brand. Right now there are offshoot events in Korea, Central Asia, North America and South America.

What is in-cosmetics about? It’s about connecting suppliers with buyers across every link in the supply chain. The product portfolio includes fillers, personal care ingredients, colourants, formulation, emulsifiers, tanning agents, fragrances, humectants, preservatives, solvents, sunscreen, surfactants and many more. Of course, aside from the sheer business aspects, in-cosmetics also serves as the drive behind new innovations and standards.


in-cosmetics Global follows an annual model and editions usually take place at the start of spring in April. The event lasts three days on average and are open to professionals only. Because of its global branding, in-cosmetics travels to different cities all over Europe.

This edition will be held in Barcelona, Spain at the Fira Barcelona – Gran Vía. The official organiser for the event is Reed Exhibitions and doors are open from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm except for the last day, which wraps up one day earlier. Fira Barcelona – Gran Vía enjoys a superb location in Barcelona, with sufficient access to motorways and public transport. There’s a metro station and bus stop, which allow for quick connections to your hotel.

What Are People Saying?

“This year was my first time at in-cosmetics Global & it was much bigger than I imagined. It was a very elegant show and is elevated beyond other events. I visited in search of ingredients and innovation, and found a lot of new companies that I had not been exposed to before. It was a really interesting experience for me and definitely worth the trip from the USA.” — Michelle Corredor, Director Product Development, Estee Lauder;

“As an indie brand specialising in products for athletes, we are very interested to learn about new ingredients and innovation and saw companies that we know will be of great interest to us.” — Gisele Violin, Commercial Manager, Pink Cheeks;

“It was my first time at the show & I found so much of it to be interesting, from the products and ingredients on show to the educational sessions on offer. It was very well organised and gave me a brilliant chance to network with new and existing contacts.” — Marta Maia, Senior Technologist, Coty

Audience & Statistics

As an exhibitor at in-cosmetics, you’ll be quite satisfied with the turnout as last edition managed to surpass 12,000 trade visitors in total from all over the world. That’s more than enough for the over 800 exhibitors, which came from all over the world.

The reason for in-cosmetics being a global trendsetter is that exhibitors represent markets in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, creating an in-depth perception of the market. Exhibitors tend to be lab equipment and software suppliers; manufacturers of raw materials, ingredients and fragrance components, and testing & research providers. The nature of in-cosmetics is predominantly to foster purchases – the audience mainly consists of buyers from the top tier of the global cosmetics industry.
