Thank you for your invariable understanding and support of the activities of the Federation of Japanese Cosmetic Ingredients Associations (Japan Cosmetic Suppliers Association, Kinki Cosmetic Materials Association) and the co-organizer, The Society of Cosmetic Chemists of Japan.
This is the 9th CITE Japan since the first Cosmetic Ingredients and Technology Exhibition Japan (CITE Japan) was held in 2003. As a platform to exhibit the various materials, technology, services, etc. in the field of cosmetics, it has continued to grow with each exhibition. The number of visitors and exhibitors from overseas has also continued to grow proving that CITE Japan is now becoming recognized as a global exhibition.
CITE Japan, where all the companies from industries related to cosmetics gather at one location, is an ideal opportunity for announcing the cutting-edge materials and technologies of Japan’s cosmetic industries to the world, under the theme of “Next Step for Cosmetic Ingredients & Technology – The Worldwide New Trend -”. The Federation is committed to further improving the quality of the upcoming exhibition. I hope you will make use of CITE Japan 2019 and look forward to your active exhibition and participation.

I would like to thank the many people who extended warm support and cooperation for the holding of the 9th Cosmetic Ingredients and Technology Exhibition Japan (CITE Japan 2019). CITE Japan has evolved as a unique exhibition planned and administered together by the exhibitors who are suppliers and the cosmetics manufacturers who are users. As a result, CITE Japan is becoming established as a venue where the ingredients, technologies, and services valuable for cosmetics development assemble at one place, and as the premier occasion for collecting information to advance cosmetics development. The cosmetics industry is facing a wave of globalization, and the exhibition will include global contents as it did in the past. I expect it will prove useful in everyday work as a point of deeper and broader contact between suppliers and users.
As the co-organizer of this exhibition, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists of Japan (SCCJ) is also actively working for the further development of the Japanese cosmetics industry through CITE Japan 2019. We hope that large numbers of companies and people will exhibit and participate in CITE Japan to pioneer the future of the cosmetics industry and lead to its further developme
