The Organizer: Cosmetic Valley

More than 20 years of experience in fragrance and cosmetics

Created in 1994, Cosmetic Valley has over 20 years' experience in working together with businesses in the fragrance and cosmetics industry, through network development and support in exporting and innovation.

Trusted partnerships with over 600 companies

Today, 608 companies in the industry have already placed their trust in Cosmetic Valley: including groups and companies of all sizes, as well as entrepreneurs, and covering all aspects: chemistry, packaging, manufacturing, testing and analyses, brands, services, IT, etc.

Cosmetic Valley has grown over the years but has maintained a start-up culture, providing services to assist entrepreneurs with all types of innovative projects.

Close ties to the academic world

Cosmetic Valley has forged close ties with French research institutions and universities, such as CNRS and INRA, and various engineering schools. Over 200 collaborative projects between academic and industrial researchers have already been established through Cosmetic Valley’s networking initiatives.

Key experience in Open Innovation


Cosmetic Valley has organized meetings with SMEs, laboratories and start-ups on behalf of major international clients: Alliance Boots, Chanel, Johnson & Johnson, Laboratoires Pierre Fabre, L'Oréal, LVMH Recherche, Procter & Gamble, PUIG, Rodan + Fields, Shiseido, Yves Rocher. These meetings were highly successful, leading to win-win opportunities for collaboration.

An international network of partners

Cosmetic Valley has developed strong ties with networks dedicated to fragrance and cosmetics around the world: Japan Cosmetic Center (Japan), Beauty Cluster Barcelona (Spain), Québec International (Canada), Tahiti Fa'ahotu (Polynesia), Taiwan Beauty Valley (Taiwan), and more.

It was therefore a natural move for Cosmetic Valley to create Cosmetic 360, a trade fair that serves as a forum for exchange on innovation. The event provides invaluable opportunities for networking to shape the beauty industry of tomorrow.
