The Natural Beauty & Spa Theatre at Natural & Organic Products Europe trade show will feature dynamic new content from some of the leading brand ambassadors and pioneers of the natural and organic beauty sector; including Daniel Galvin Jnr, Weleda, Tabitha James Kaan, Pravera, and Faith in Nature, and Kinetic Natural Products Distributor.

Returning to London ExCeL on 2-3 April, new speakers for 2017 include founder of professional organic hair care range Tabitha James Kaan, discussing retail opportunities for natural and organic hair care; Henrietta Norton, co-founder of Wild Nutrition, outlining the importance of nutrients and supplements to defend against premature ageing; and Daniel Galvin Jnr, a member of the country’s most influential hairdressing dynasty.  He’ll be sharing his experience of lobbying on behalf of the industry and the wider organic community.

“I am looking forward to speaking and exhibiting for the first time at the Natural & Organic Products Europe this year, as this will give us a fantastic opportunity to connect with buyers who have a genuine interest in organic and vegan beauty products.  This is a great show for buyers to connect with brands that are at the forefront of this growing industry,” says Daniel Galvin Jnr.

Lauren Bartley, from Soil Association Certification, will be hosting two sessions at the show.  On opening day (Sunday, 2 April), she’ll give an overview of plans for this year’s Organic Beauty & Wellbeing Week, and on the Monday (3 April) she will outline the main findings of the Soil Association’s first ever Organic Beauty & Wellbeing Report.  Published last month, the report reveals that sales of certified organic and natural beauty products increased by 13% in 2016 to £61.2 million.  That growth is certainly reflected at the show, which is on track to feature a record number of certified organic products.

Other sessions in the Natural Beauty Theatre will cover the emerging intimate care market; a guide to the different types of collagen supplements; ‘hot’ trends for 2017; the East Asian therapeutic technique Gua Sha; the increasing alignment between health and beauty products; and offer a sneak peak into the world of Waitrose buyer Jo Lynch.

There will also be two panel sessions: one on the forthcoming ‘ISO Standard for natural & organic cosmetics’ (hosted by Ecovia Intelligence) and the other on the growing importance of ‘Sustainability in the beauty industry’.

“Natural & Organic Products Europe is a great place to share news and exchange ideas about sustainability,” says Jayn Sterland, MD of Weleda UK.  She’ll be appearing on the ‘sustainability’ panel, alongside Jo Chidley (Beauty Kitchen), Dr Mark Smith (NATRUE), Joanne Hill (Amaranth) beauty journalist Jo Fairley (co-founder of Green & Black’s); and Helen Yeardsley (Pegasus PR).
