Milano Beauty Week is an event organised by Cosmetica Italia (member of Federchimica, the Italian Federation of the chemical industry), in partnership with Cosmoprof and Esxence.

This cultural project aims to promote the social, scientific and economic value of cosmetics, as well as to highlight the peculiarity of the Italian cosmetic supply chain - from multinationals to small/medium production companies, including packaging, raw materials and machinery manufacturers.

This year’s edition of Milano Beauty Week will be held from 27th September to 2nd October 2023 with a full program of activities and experiences that will liven up the streets, squares and commercial spaces of Lombardy's main city.

Entrepreneurs, field workers and experts, beauty enthusiasts, hair and beauty professionals, citizens and visitors will be the protagonists of a Week devoted to the culture of beauty and well-being.

From toothpaste to soap, from shaving cream to shampoo, not to mention perfumes and make-up, each one of us uses at least eight cosmetic items every single day. From hygienic gestures, passing through hydration and protection, self-care products are our essential allies for our well-being and self-esteem, at every stage of our lives.

Innovation, sustainability, inclusion and emotion: these are the main topics of this unique event, which aims at becoming an annual collective recurrence.

The initiative involves the public with an in-person and digital offer of talks, experiential workshops, charity initiatives, themed paths, and events at the historical Palazzo Giureconsulti, a short walk from the Duomo, which will host the Beauty Village for all the event dates, and also in other locations and commercial spaces.

Following the success of the first edition, Milano Beauty Week 2023 aims at affirming cosmetics as essential products and at positioning the related industry as an excellence of Made in Italy production: an excellence deserving to be celebrated within the calendar of the Milanese Weeks.
