Independent research lab predicts planetary future of beauty & wellness. Study covers spas in Kenya, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Austria and more.

Four years of intensive collaboration between Cosmoprof’s parent company Sogecos and Dr. Francesco Morace’s world-renowned Future Concept Lab (FCL) have yielded fascinating results about the relationship between beauty and well-being in a spa or retail setting. The FCL team will reveal these results at Cosmoprof North America this July in Las Vegas, hosting an “observatory” that illuminates trends in the perception and experience of body wellness from all over the globe – revealing the present state of affairs as well as predicting future trends. This presentation is complimentary to all Cosmoprof NA visitors.

The Future Concept Lab has written a book about their research titled, Body Visions, which uses case studies garnered from spas all over the world. Join us as they illustrate these examples and show how real world spas are taking advantage of the six new trends in beauty and health, including:

•“Slow” wellness – the luxury of the future will be serenity

•Ethics and medical spa programs – where we are heading legislatively and intellectually

•Rites of passage and initiation that help us explore and define identity

•“Sharing” care – the return to communal bathing

•Expression and experimentation – the personalization of the physical experience

“Future Concept Lab takes important insights about socio-cultural trends and shows us how to apply them in a real world retail or spa environment,” said Bonnie Bonadeo, director of education for Cosmoprof North America. “Their research is unique in the world, and it helps our attendees stay well ahead of the curve for serving their customers and developing new business ideas. This is a must for salon/spa owners and anyone looking to the future of our industry!”
