PCHi 2023 Ready to Inspire and Invigorate
Global personal care industry to gather for the first time in China post-pandemic
Beijing, 2 February 2023 — Personal Care and Homecare Ingredients (PCHi), China’s choice sourcing platform for the global personal care industry, will return to Guangzhou at The China Import and Export Fair Complex from 15 – 17 February 2023. PCHi 2023 is set to be the first cosmetics and personal care event of the calendar year to welcome trade visitors from all around the world since the COVID-19 pandemic.
PCHi 2023: The first international event for the cosmetics industry in China
Earlier this month, China fully reopened its borders and lifted quarantine requirements for inbound travelers.
Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions (RSE) is expecting an increased footfall of over 30,000 visitors at PCHi 2023, as it will be the event’s largest edition yet — with more than 700 exhibitors showcasing their latest ingredients and service offerings, as well as a host of complimentary and paid-for learning opportunities. Trade professionals can expect the usual hustle and bustle of activities on the show floor, including the crowd favorite feature, the PCHi Fountain Awards, which has not ceased even when the industry could not physically meet.
As global air travel and MICE activities resume, PCHi sets the tone for the personal care industry with an innovation-led series of feature areas that address popular trends. These include:
· Increasing cosmetic product safety through toxicology testing;
· Businesses increasingly adopting sustainability practices;
· Growing awareness and understanding of ingestible beauty among consumers;
· Safeguarding the global personal care and cosmetic industry’s future by equipping industry hopefuls with technical expertise.
Toxicological Testing Zone
Cosmetic manufacturers and businesses have an increasing degree of responsibility to subject ingredients and products to safety and toxicological tests. Located in Hall 1, the Toxicological Testing Zone will showcase specific products and technologies that demonstrate exhibitors’ efforts to address regulatory bodies’ and end users’ expectations of cosmetic product safety.
PCHi Sustainability Zone
Around the world and across industries, businesses are forced to rethink their products, services, and business practices as the pressure to adopt a circular economy increases. A select group of exhibitors will be showcasing specific products and technologies that demonstrate their efforts in sustainable development over at the PCHi Sustainability Zone again this year.
In addition, the PCHi Sustainability Zone Forum will feature a broad range of topics, including macro policies, market trends, raw material formulations, and packaging of sustainable beauty. Renowned companies such as Shiseido, Beiersdorf, Jala Group, and Chicmax will be sharing their insights in presentations, while prominent industry KOLs will make an appearance at a dedicated roundtable session to discuss the future development of sustainable beauty in China.
Colleges & Universities Innovation Zone
Also returning to PCHi 2023 is the Colleges & Universities Innovation Zone, where visitors can catch a glimpse of industry-academia collaboration in action. Various institutions of higher learning from across China will be presenting their latest research and laboratory findings as applied to the personal care and beauty market.
Beauté Gourmet is a unique experiential zone that brings together exhibitors with products that promote beauty from within. Also known as nutricosmetics, these products include oral supplements and functional foods that focuses on improving the health and appearance of the skin. Attendees can look forward to trying some of the exhibitors’ innovative products at this feature area.
PCHi Annual Industry Conference

PCHi Fountain Awards: Recognizing Research Excellence & Technological Innovations
An annual tradition since 2017, PCHi will hold the PCHi Fountain Awards Ceremony 2023 alongside the Industry Night Dinner on Day 1. The PCHi Fountain Awards seeks to thrust the industry toward an ever-increasing elevation of research capabilities and development of innovative technologies. It recognizes companies for excellence in ingredient technology, packaging, and equipment, as well as individuals for their personal contributions to the industry-at-large.
Just as organizations and corporations around the world pivoted their business operations during the pandemic, RSE also transformed and refined its nomination and judging process for the Awards in the last few years. For one, the entire process has moved online, making it more accessible and transparent for all.
Finalists will be featured in a dedicated showcase on the show floor and winners announced on 15 February.
