ManCare at In-Cosmetics Global

Making Cosmetics
Thor once again exhibited at this prime exhibition for the personal care industry held this year at the ExCel in London over 4-6 April.
This year the focus of Thor’s exhibit was on an all new grooming range developed specifically for men! With male grooming products becoming an ever expanding area of the personal care market, Thor demonstrated six innovative new formulations for the face, hair and beard - all incorporating Microcare® Silicones and Microcare® Green Quats.  Over 200 visitors attended the Thor stand to see the formulation demonstrated in our themed 'barbershop' area.

It was wonderful to welcome so many present and future customers to the show and we look forward to seeing you all again next year in Amsterdam.
