Polymers for effective and sustainable cosmetics
It is not only with the selfie-generation that the growing trend of cosmetics in recent years is explained. Taking care of your person is putting yourself in a positive way towards others. Give value to yourself and express the desire to be in a relationship: cosmetics is not appearance but a contemporary need.
In 2018, made in Italy cosmetics grow by 2% with a total turnover of 11.2 billion (source: Ass. Cosmetica Italia). These are products that are also affirming themselves on the international market with an export growth that is second only to wines and with a commercial balance (+ 8.1%) that exceeds sectors such as fashion and eyewear.
In this context, companies need to be able to count on the impeccable quality of the raw materials used. Covestro polymers provide exactly that. They set new standards in the cosmetic sector and present unparalleled quality in terms of yield and protection.
