SEPAWA Congress 2018 , Berlin October 10. – 12.,2018 - Festival of the Senses


Berlin / Thannhausen, Germany - May 30, 2018
The SEPAWA Congress 2018 in Berlin has an additional highlight! This year, a special focus is on fragrances. Because perfumes play an important role in our well-being and in how we feel, fragrances are an important factor in the formulation of Personal and Home Care products as well. In the session “Fragrances: Science, Regulation and Market”, we will investigate how the reception of fragrances can influence our senses and even our health.

Renowned speakers present the follwing topics and are ready for discussion:
  • IFRA Standards – the fragrance industry’s self-regulatory approach (Dr. Matthias Vey, IFRA)
  • The Nagoya Protocol and Access and Benefit Sharing regulations:  challenges for the fragrance and flavor industries (Dr. Cecile Gonzales, IFRA)
  • Smelling beyond the nose: Expression and physiological  function of extranasal olfactory receptors (Prof. Dr. med. Habil. Hanns Hatt, Uni. Bochum)
  • Allergen Labelling - Practical approach and background information (Dirk Beuster, DVRH)
  • "Natural” and “Organic” in Cosmetics and Related Products and Ingredients (Prof. Dr. Wladyslaw S. Brud, Academy of Cosmetology and Health Care, Warsaw; Pollena-Aroma Ltd. )
Your senses will be even more stimulated on the evening of Wednesday October 11, 2018. As a special feature and with the assistance of  HTW school Berlin, a Fashion Show will take place in connection with the experience of fragrances specially created for this event. All attendants will receive perfumes which were created by the companies Drom, Frey & Lau and  Düllberg and which will enhance the fashion style and inspire the senses.

Participants will feel the combination of the senses of eye, nose and ear.
