At this exceptional 2020 edition, nearly 200 start-ups took the gamble of exhibiting at Natexpo for the first time, joining major organic players and exhibitors loyal to the show.
Acknowledged as a reference event in the organic sector, Natexpo is a true growth accelerator for young companies wishing to enter the market,.
This year’s show, which revealed a wealth of talent, enabled 7,965 professionals from the sector to gain an all-round vision of the latest developments in the organic market over two days of business and constructive discussions.
Once again this year, the new entrants were able to highlight their innovations to meet the new challenges of organic: more responsible, greener and cleaner consumption.
Consumer awareness is growing as to the need to protect our environment, but people still have a desire for beauty and well-being. According to a My Beauty Community survey, 84% of respondents say they want to buy new brands and they will choose first and foremost a brand that is made in France (48%), eco-responsible (47%) and natural (44%). These choices were further amplified by the public health crisis.
In line with these values, organic cosmetics and hygiene products are performing well. Consumers are confirming their desire for more responsible products and in response, the ranges are expanding. This year, Natexpo was able to highlight new trends that meet today’s requirements and tomorrow’s expectations.
