CosmeticDays 2018, the reference conference dedicated to essential oils

CosmeticDays 2018 is the scientific, technical and regulatory conference dedicated to Essential Oils in cosmetics, medical devices, biocides and aromatherapy.
The fourth edition will be held on June 21 and 22 in Avignon, and will, as every year, bring together over 250 participants, including players from the cosmetics industry (academic researchers, CEOs, R&D, marketing, regulatory, etc.) as well as from other sectors.

Essential oils have experienced considerable growth in less than 10 years, driven by people's enthusiasm for natural health, beauty and food solutions. According to Market Research Reports, the global essential oils market is expected to grow by 9.60% by 2022, reaching a value of US$27.49 billion, mainly thanks to aromatherapy applications.
The European market for essential oils is expected to grow by 8.80% over the same period. France is both a major producer (60% of European lavender and lavandin production) and the main consumer market in Europe.

At the same time, controversies are emerging over the safety of essential oils in the event of misuse, the scope of the claims made for them, and their future in people's wellness and daily care arsenal.
