IRELAND: Swedish cosmetics firm Oriflame has opened its new, $3 million research and development center at Bray Business Park in County Wicklow, Ireland. First opened in 2000 with 28 scientists, the R&D center was originally planned to employ a total of 50. The number of scientists has increased over the years to 92, and the company further plans to expand to 127 over the next five years.

The new facility will serve as the company’s cosmetics center of excellence for product research and development, including regulatory affairs and product safety.

Oriflame has been in Ireland since 1979 when it opened a manufacturing facility in Dublin’s Sandyford area.

In other news, the Hindu Business Line has reported that Oriflame India is increasing production capacity at its facility in Noida as it plans to add as many 140 new SKUs in the personal care, skin care and oral care categories. Approximately 75% of Oriflame’s products sold in India are imported.
