NYSCC Suppliers’ Day 2016: BASF presents innovations to address consumer and industry demand

BASF presents innovations to address consumer and industry demand

FLORHAM PARK, NJ, May 3, 2016

Consumer satisfaction and purchasing habits are driven primarily by emotion – whether that be feeling empowered, appearing youthful, or caring for oneself. As a result, brand owners look to strengthen positive emotions and reinforce product and sustainability claims to form a lasting impression on consumers. BASF helps its customers achieve this through new ingredients, formulations and innovative product concepts while also helping to optimize the sustainability performance of their portfolios. Customers can experience the latest innovations for the personal care industry at the 2016 New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) Suppliers’ Day, from May 10-11 at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition center in Edison, New Jersey.

“BASF connects the dots between consumer needs, market trends and our formulating expertise to create a unique offering for our customers, which now includes a Sustainable Solution Steering® method, which provides more transparency about the sustainability profile of BASF ingredients,” said Nimit Mehta, Head of Marketing & Sustainability, Home & Personal Care North America. “NYSCC Suppliers’ Day affords us the opportunity to share these offerings for an enriched consumer experience.”
