Health and Beauty Group

Health and Beauty Germany GmbH is a holding company and has been part of the international Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna network since 2018.

The Group was originally part of a widely ramified printing and publishing house. Its history goes back to 1813, the year the company was founded by Gottlieb Braun in Karlsruhe.

For a long time, the only trade magazines were in the highly competitive pharmaceutical market. Major reorganization efforts were therefore necessary and formed the basis for analyzing the “neighboring” markets before the sale of medical magazines began in 1998. Here, great opportunities were expected, especially in the wellness market.

Today Health and Beauty Group publishes specialized cross-media content under the BEAUTY FORUM brand – among the most widely read specialized cosmetics magazines in Europe – and organizes beauty professional trade shows in the main European markets.

We believe that beauty is everywhere. Everybody wants to feel beautiful in their own individual way. Beauty knows no age, sex or skin color. Healthy and happy people are beautiful from the inside and outside. Beauty treatments make people feel better, more selfconfident and can even heal physically and mentally. We want to spread our mission through our magazines and professional trade fairs and events. In cooperation with our partners, we want to enhance the power and value of beauty, which strengthens us and inspires joy and confidence. We are working together to feed and encourage the beauty industry, to boost innovation and performance and reach beauty professionals by providing opportunities for training and networking. We are the professional partner for the beauty sector and want to be the link between beauty professionals, brands and consumers. 

Roberto Valente CEO

Roberto Valente guides the Health and Beauty Group as Managing Director since 2020. His extensive experience as the manager of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, the leading international event in the beauty industry, and as the director of Cosmofarma Exhibition, the pharmacy world’s leading European event, laid the foundation for his role in the management of this group.

“I believe that beauty can produce a virtuous cycle, which is crucial for our professional working life. When we feel beautiful, we also feel better; it’s not merely a matter of esthetics. Here at Health and Beauty, I we have a management team and company structure that embraces this understanding of the world of beauty.”
