The annual SEPAWA Congress is the groundbreaking event for the detergents/cleansers, cosmetics and perfumery industry in Europe

With over 130 lectures and presentations on detergents, cosmetics, fragrances and legislation, the SEPAWA Congress offers a wealth of information to more than 2,500 participants. Additionally, visitors can trace ingredients on the booths of some 300 exhibitors and discuss with specialists new formulation techniques. The Congress is the European communication platform for experts in the above-mentioned fields.

Innovations are the key to growth and competitiveness. Within the framework of the congress, SEPAWA will award three prizes for exceptional innovations in the field of ingredients, products, techniques or concepts from participating companies in the congress - either as exhibitors or as lecturers. SEPAWA specifically promotes young scientists. At the congress, up to eight excellent bachelor, master and PhD students will receive awards. Also, a sponsorship prize will be given by the Expert Division Detergency & Formulations Chemistry of the German Chemical Society.
