“ICI 2022 is our largest exhibition to date. I’m hoping that this is a positive sign for the beauty industry’s future growth,” Rustam Sulaeman, Project Officer of ICI 2022, stated in a release received by Kanal Media Unpad.
The Faculty of Pharmacy showcased a variety of cosmetic innovations in ICI 2022. The products included the development of raw cosmetic materials, the “Scale UP” Cosmetic Innovation Center as a creative economy, the digital Beautyversity.id as an educative company about cosmetics, and the LabCos cosmetics testing laboratory service.
