SPC Magazine: Cosmoprof Asia 2017, Cosmetokyo 2018 and Germany Country Profile 2017

Here are the PDFs of my three most recent articles for SPC Magazine: show reviews of Cosmoprof Asia 2017 (February 2018 edition) and Cosmetokyo 2018 (April 2018 edition), plus one of my favourite SPC repeat assignments: Germany Country Profile 2017; a round-up of what’s been happening in the German beauty retail market over the past year!

I’ve just consulted my files and this is my ninth Germany retail report (2006-2009 and then again 2013-2017). Wow. Back in 2006/2007, department store chain Karstadt was still called Karstadt Quelle, perfumery retailer Douglas still belonged to the Kreke family and drugstore chain Schlecker was still an aggressive force in the German drugstore channel. How times have changed…

Anyway, enjoy the articles. Copyright: HPCi Media.
