Statistics indicate that there is a growth of regional markets' demand for beauty products and services, driven by the increase in the number of people living and working in the region. Gulf countries import nearly $1.5 billion worth of beauty products per year, including approximately $500 million, a Dubai World Trade Centre release disclosed. The bulk of these imports are re-exported to neighboring countries, the Indian subcontinent, Iran and the CIS nations. The UAE has established itself as the regional hub for cosmetics, perfume and skin care products sellers and manufacturers.
Gulf Beauty 2000 will feature a wide variety of products, including perfumes, cosmetics, skin care products, hair and body lotions, made of pure natural oils and extracts. Health club, spa and beauty salon equipment and services will also be highlighted.
