Home and Personal Care Ingredients Exhibition and Conference India (HPCI) continues to grow and brings together experts focused on raw materials and techniques for the formulation of cosmetic and cleaning products.

It was early last year when ExpoNova Exhibitions & Conferences (India) Pvt.

Ziolkowsky GmbH
