Immortality has long been the engine for so much fantasy. From the Epic of Gilgamesh to the endless regenerative powers of Deadpool, popular culture has asked us many times to ponder all the ways that we could live if we never died.
Evolving technologies and advances in science are aiding beauty, health and wellness businesses in building brands, products and services that let consumers live not only longer lives, but better quality lives.
This presentation is your guide to better understand what role care plays in human maintenance, durability and endurance and align your business goals with the sector’s future trajectory.
Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, the unrelenting climate crisis and the impact of inflation on customer spending, the beauty and wellness sectors are entering a new age of products and experiences built on expertise, innovation, evidence and certification.
Now, as we explore in this presentation, companies must bring their expertise, research and accreditation to the fore, not only to prove the worthiness of their products but also to inspire spending. Science and technological expertise will also be crucial to safeguard the industry against future shocks, securing supply chains and fuelling fresh directions for formulas, products and experiences.
Self-care as we know it is changing. Between calls to reject the wellness industrial complex and close the gap between widening health inequalities, a shift is under way.
Covid-19 has taught us that we are all connected and that taking care of ourselves is a way to care for our family, friends and community. For this reason, self-care is taking on a new role on both an individual and a collective scale.
In this presentation, we look at the foundations of beauty, health and wellness that have been compromised by the pandemic as well as emerging trends and foresight.
