Paris, 18 April 2016
Givaudan Active Beauty was recognised with top honours at in-cosmetics Paris after winning gold for the “Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award” with our new, innovative, and effective active cosmetic ingredient Neurophroline™.
Developed by Givaudan, this new development breakthrough is proven to trigger different actions in our physiological makeup to control the effects of various kinds of skin stress such as climate and pollution by acting on cortisol, the major stress hormone.
The skin stress control molecule Neurophroline™ is the result of ground-breaking scientific research by our global teams in discovery, research and biological assessment. Winning this prestigious award among fifty other products further reflects our strong leadership in product marketing, scientific innovation, and R&D.
Fabrice Lefèvre, Global Marketing and Innovation Director, said: “This award signifies the strong collaboration between our teams to define our innovative strategy for the cosmetic market. It also demonstrates our ability to respond to our customers’ needs by proposing innovative, highly efficient, multi-functional, and safe ingredients that are regulatory compliant.”
Frederique Lafosse, Head of Active Beauty, said: “This achievement reflects the very hard work of our remarkable Active Beauty team! It’s a great accomplishment to win this award as one new entity, having just revealed our new image to the industry this week. Constantly at the heart of innovation and R&D, this award will further strengthen the link with our customers and also build confidence with future customers we have yet to meet.”
This is the first award for Givaudan Active Beauty, our newly rebranded active cosmetics business following the successful integration of French biosourced company Soliance and sciences-based ingredients company Induchem.
