Natural butters and oils in cosmetics: Export openings in Europe


The Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI) invites you to join a new Market Intelligence webinar. This webinar focuses on the natural ingredients sector.

There is a growing trend of using exotic oils and butters in cosmetics and personal care products. More and more often, consumers are looking for natural products. And cosmetic companies are reformulating their products with natural ingredients. Exotic butters and natural butters are becoming popular as they provide novelty to cosmetics products.

This webinar looks at the export openings for exotic oils and natural butters in the European market. We will also cover market trends and developments.

During this webinar, we will discuss the following questions:

  • What natural butters and exotic oils are becoming popular in Europe?
  • What is the demand in Europe for these products? Which countries have the most potential?
  • What are the market trends for natural ingredients in cosmetics?
