Sensorial expert for more than 20 years, Gattefossé always surprises and delights with innovative cosmetic textures.
Four years ago, Gattefossé created INSPIRATION: a tool to discover novel, sensorial experiences and galvanize creativity. Providing pleasure, surprise, and motivation, this creative concept aims to awaken formulators’ inner imagination.
INSPIRATION highlights one or several topics, each of them bringing a new breath through innovative textures and visuals. The formulations, that illustrate each idea, will help formulators to rediscover Gattefossé’s ingredients outside of their comfort zone.
In 2022, INSPIRATION presents a new topic: Escapism
After months of working remotely, social withdrawal, and geographical restrictions, the desire to travel is stronger than ever. But the environmental impact of mass tourism darkens this desire. A real dilemma!
Instead of going to the other side of the globe, we can be satisfied with simple things. While favoring more environmentally friendly transport modes, one can discover or rediscover their own country and share time with loved ones to improve and create a memorable journey.
The 2022 edition of INSPIRATION, called Escapism, invites to dream about next destinations while rethinking the way we travel. Gattefossé’s applications lab has therefore developed practical and innovative formulas to accompany travelers in their new adventures!
5 new formulas perfectly adapted to travel
These formulations have been designed to perfectly meet travelers needs: easily transportable, smaller and lighter than conventional versions, multifunctional, no waste left behind… The lab thought outside of the box to create cosmetics that practical but also desirable to attract new consumers.
