Over the past few weeks, the topics of sustainability and climate change have triggered debates and protests from Rome to Glasgow. The plans for recovery and economic development for the coming years set forth at G20 and COP26 highlight the central importance of sustainable transformation across all manufacturing sectors. The world of cosmetics must play its part in reducing the environmental impact of industrial processes.
“Make-up The Future”, a report published in April 2021 by Quantis, the environmental consultancy firm that specializes in helping companies develop eco-friendly development strategies, pointed out the extent to which this topic is changing consumer habits. In the United States, 40-50% of consumers actively seek out beauty products with natural or organic ingredients. In Germany, 25% of consumers select organic or natural personal care products because of their benefits for health and for the environment. In China, 58% of people between the ages of 20 and 49 are particularly concerned with quality of life and are willing to pay more to buy from brands that enact policies to reduce their environmental impact.
The role of the beauty supply chain in the environmentally sustainable transition is central: exhibitors at Cosmopack 2022 are pioneers in the search for industrial solutions that show concern for the health of the planet.
Ancorotti Cosmetics, a leader in third-party manufacturing in the beauty sector, will present a personalized and inclusive makeup collection in March that underscores the uniqueness of the wearer, showing respect for the planet and its diversity: a project that works for sustainability across the board, from ingredients to packaging to manufacturing processes.
Asquan has always been committed to a beauty industry that globally preserves the environment and values peoples, by developing innovative primary packaging that is safe for people and the environment.

All parts are designed to be easily disassembled for recycling. In March, the company will launch also Easy Airless, a refillable and recyclable pack that uses recycled materials.
At Cosmopack 2022, Quadpack, international beauty packaging manufacturer and provider, will present Woodacity®, its patented range of closure for fragrances packs. Each cap is crafted from a single piece of sustainably-sourced wood. The unique designs obviate the need for a plastic insert, for ultimate circularity.

The company invests in the search for premium raw materials, ease-of-use and sustainable packaging, selecting packages made with FSC and 100% recyclable materials. In addition, it makes use of by-products from the agri-food sector to obtain bioactive compounds, enzymes, and active ingredients for the formulation of particularly performant beauty products.
Pink Frogs has been designing and producing modern and effective cosmetics for over 40 years, setting high standards for quality, safety, and respect for the environment.
