Pentapharm Integrates Alpaflor SA Into its Cosmetics Division
November 22, 2005
Pentapharm, Basel, Switzerland, has integrated Alpaflor SA as a business unit into the cosmetics division of Pentapharm Ltd. In 1997, Pentapharm Holding acquired the Swiss company, which specializes in the development and production of extracts from Alpine plants such as edelweiss. The integration will not affect the market appearance or strategy of the company, according to executives. Alpaflor will remain the Alpine plant extract line within the Pentapharm cosmetic active ingredients range.
