Brings novel bilberry extract for cosmetics.

DianaPlantSciences, an innovative player in concentrated actives’ production through plant cell culture dedicated to cosmetic, nutraceuticals and nutrition, has signed an accord with Solabia in which it will supply the firm with a novel bilberry extract dedicated to the cosmetic industry.
