A Productive Week

Personal Care Technical Workshop, Regional Meeting and Participation at
in-cosmetics Asia 2018

On 29 October 2018, in preparation for the upcoming in-cosmetics Asia 2018 Formulation Lab event, the Personal Care team organised an in-house technical session and laboratory workshop at Behn Meyer Thailand’s lab facilities.

We were privileged with the presence of Dr. Carsten Dietz (PhD), Cosphatec GmbH’s R&D and Quality Director, who shared with us on the subject of “Urban Anti-Pollution Skin Elixir”. Also in attendance were Mr. Frank Bruns and Mr. Matthias Hentz, respectively the Managing Director and Sales Manager AP of Cosphatec GmbH, as well as Mr. Prasonk Aramwittaya, the Managing Director of Behn Meyer Thailand.

The workshop was a very hands-on experience, as all participants went through the what’s and how’s of systematic processes related to the topic. During the brainstorming and open forum sessions, the Personal Care team raised many pertinent inquiries and got their technical questions answered.

The workshop ended with lunch, and right after that, the Personal Care Regional Meeting commenced. There were 10 participants in attendance, representing the teams from Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar and the Philippines.

The regional meeting started off with the sharing of success stories. Each representative took time to share about new achievements and milestones reached this year as well as their process in accomplishing them, in order that the others may replicate their success.

Next, the participants were divided into two groups to discuss the strategies for business expansion in the coming year. Following an in-depth sharing session on the challenges faced due to the changing market and increasing competition, careful analysis was made and many effective solutions were proposed to overcome the challenges raised.

Following the fruitful and productive regional meeting, the team went on to participate at in-cosmetics Asia 2018 from 30 October – 1 November. in-cosmetics Asia is the leading event for personal care ingredients in Asia Pacific that brings together suppliers, distributors and finished product manufacturers looking to network, learn about future trends and discover new products.

Joining forces with our esteemed suppliers Hayman and Jarchem, Behn Meyer made our appearance this year at a booth designed around the concept of greenness – the sense of nature, freshness, safety, hope and renewal were the driving ideas behind the booth design.

The visitors who came by our booth were attracted not only by the eye-catching design, but also by the many interesting and colourful application samples that were on display. Together with Cosphatec, the Personal Care team also conducted an interactive training session for about 60 visitors in the event’s R&D zone where they had a chance, under the watchful eyes of Cosphatec’s experts, to formulate a soft yet gentle and stable anti-aging skin elixir with an urban touch.

Our booth was constantly packed with people looking to learn more about our products and solutions, and our team members were more than happy to answer any and all technical questions. It was certainly an exciting week and a great experience for us, and we are confident that everyone benefitted in one way or another through the different events.
