Symrise International has acquired licenses for two new groups of cosmetic active ingredients, developed through a joint development project with biotech specialist Brain and natural-product company AnalytiCon. The license gives Symrise marketing rights.
Last June, the three partners successfully completed two screening procedures to identify multiple groups of innovative active ingredients thus enabling Symrise to develop new active components for use in cosmetics.
On Oct. 1, 2008, Symrise acquired the exclusive marketing rights to two of these active ingredients groups. Symrise will develop them with the goal of a market launch in 2009. Products will be used primarily in deodorants as well as products for sensitive skin.
