Ludwigshafen, Germany – October 27, 2022 – BASF strengthens its commitment to drive environmentally conscious practices by hosting its first Sustainable Beauty Days. The Personal Care division is inviting attendees to interactive events on selected sustainability topics affecting the personal care industry from November 21 to 23.
“Our industry has made important progress in terms of sustainability in recent years, but there is still a lot of work to be done and time is pressing. To make a difference, we need to join forces. For our Sustainable Beauty Days, we have invited experts from various disciplines to join us in discussing the greatest challenge of our time: preserving a safe and healthy planet for future generations,” said Dr. Becky Stiles, Head of Sustainability, Personal Care EMEA.
Topics covered include future sustainability trends and challenges, possible ways to address the climate crisis, advances in biopolymer research, and insights into circular design of botanical supply chains. BASF’s long-established Palm Dialog will also be part of the Sustainable Beauty Days, addressing the question of what impact the upcoming EU regulation on deforestation-free supply chains will have on the personal care industry. The sessions will be broadcasted live from BASF’s Customer Experience Center in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Participants will join virtually.
