What if you could change the beauty world now

Nov 4 / Eva Lagarde

COP26 is upon us and a lot of us are watching. Are we expectant of good outcomes? Or are we ironically turning our heads the other way?

What if we didn’t need to wait any longer and if we could act now? What if we were making a u-turn towards a better beauty, and anticipating legislations? What if we were taking even bigger steps?
What if we were taking genuine steps?

Our online courses are targeted to marketing professionals, because I think the solutions are at product development level and marketing. Marketing can change cultures. Good products can reverse the negative impact we have on the planet.

Care to join? Learn what sustainability really means, and what solutions you could implement today, amongst all the innovations out there. Learn how to shift your product portfolio and substantiate your marketing claims. Avoid greenwashing.

It’s not too late for the last course of the year on Sustainable Beauty Packaging and reverse the course of your work and life.

In other words, it costs more time and money to produce anything these days.

Key Takeaways

- The beauty company plans for strategic price increases
- And feel that cost increases are temporal in nature
