Sophie Allouche, founder of KOS Paris, presented her company as a high-end line of cosmetics, which combine the powerful natural assets of the plant world and an enduring respect for the environment. In fact, most of KOS Paris’s products highlight organic botanical oils from all over the world (Amazonia, Japan, Maghreb, Australia, ...) and ingredients from organic agriculture but also focus on quality of active ingredients. Karine Ohana, Managing Partner of Ohana & Co, added at this occasion that Beauty industry is going to a huge transformation and that retailers have already put in place sustainability chart in order to select the new brands to be displayed on the shelves or platforms. The new generation consumers as well as the traditional ones are directing the industry by being more selective, using apptools such as Yuka or supporting organism like MadeSafe. The Investment bank Ohana & Co is fully invested in this transformation of the industry through Sustainability Board Member, Susan Rockefeller and a person in charge of sustainability at their offices.
