In Clariant’s inspirational trend guide 2017, second edition, the customers can discover four new trends — CUSTOM, ORIGIN, REVIVE, and BALANCE.

CUSTOM - exploration and self-discovery are helping people rediscover their individuality in increasingly globalized context with cultural homogeneity.

ORIGIN - in a global melting pot of cultures, people try hard to look for and hold on to their own original identities while celebrating diversity among themselves.

REVIVE - technological advances and social media are driving more communication out of like-minded individuals than ever before and

BALANCE - to restore the balance in modern living is to find a way out of the routine to indulge oneself in exclusivity and life enrichment.

“At our Customer Symposium in New Delhi, we revealed a series of global consumer trends set to have an impact on the Indian Personal Care market through BeautyForward. Customers were inspired with examples of how leading and emerging beauty brands are already responding, as well as got ideas and recommendations on how to address these trends with Clariant’s latest innovations and inspiring formulations,” said Josue Silen, Marketing Manager, Consumer Care, RBL AP.

“The symposium was well received by all participants with a mix of representatives from global key accounts, the local mid-size companies and regional manufacturers from North India. The presentation on natural actives delivered by Christelle Graizeau was particularly of great interest. We received positive comments with reference to the quality of detailed data which included trial reports that were presented for the natural actives range. The highlight of the event was the live formulation demo with touch and feel, to gauge the sensory of the developed product using Clariant additives,” said Gautam Kanthadai, Head – Sales & Application.
