HPCI South Africa – your gateway to a growing market

HPCI South Africa, an exhibition devoted exclusively to ingredients for home and personal care products, will take place at Gallagher Convention Centre on 4 and 5 September. The show will be co-located with the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (Coschem’s) annual Scientific Conference.

The African continent is a growing market for future developments; now is the time to present your products to prospective customers at the exhibition. It is an ideal opportunity for local and international suppliers, contract manufacturers, brand owners and agents to network and play their stimulating growth and trade, either by exhibiting or visiting.

South Africa is the catalyst for expansion into Africa – participants from all over Africa as well as a global contingency are expected to visit the expo.

Safety assessment workshop

The Coschem Scientific Conference together with the HPCI South Africa exhibition is a truly exclusive and unique opportunity to meet peers from many African countries. Delegates will also gain insight into industry innovations and market knowledge.

In addition to the scientific conference, the Cosmetic, Toiletries & Fragrance Association – CTFA – will host a workshop on the ins and out of a product safety assessment.
