Cosmétiques & OTC : EcoMundo anime un séminaire à Barcelone

EcoMundo's expertise to service Spanish professionals

Pierre Garçon, President and founder of EcoMundo, and Sylvain De Backer, director of our cosmetic branch, had the pleasure to present the main steps to export cosmetic products and OTCs (“Over-the-Counter” drugs) on the US market.

Medium-sized companies, first-time exporters, professionals of exportation in the USA but also some big groups were present.

On the whole, our experts answered numerous questions, particularly on OTCs – which are specific to the North American cosmetic regulation.

Focus on the regulation and implementation

Through this seminar, our experts were able to promote the opportunities offered by the American cosmetic industry. They also provided detailed information on the current regulation, in terms of registration of cosmetic products and OTCs in the country.

Attendees also enjoyed a macroeconomic analysis (mostly thanks to data, channels and consumer profiles) about relevant aspects of the cosmetic market as well as practical examples.

To conclude this seminar, our speakers presented several business cases of successful Spanish companies currently operating overseas; a good way for participants to be able to plan ahead by applying the key success factors of the companies presented.

This seminar was organised in partnership with the Beauty Cluster Barcelona (BCB). Learn more
