Let’s go water-free!

Inspiring skin care formulations that go beyond water-less

The numbers speak for themselves: On the one hand, 75 % of the earth is covered with water and only less than 1% is naturally drinkable and accessible. On the other hand, over 35.000 personal care products containing water have been launched during the last 12 months in Europe alone. How can we as an industry, that is using water as a key component, do more to save this scarce resource? In this concept we demonstrate one way to do it- so let’s go water-free together!

  • Innovative water-free textures and formats offer an additional opportunity for brands to engage with conscious consumers.
