Sederma Honored by Frost & Sullivan

May 28, 2014

Named European active ingredient company of the year.

Sederma was named winner of the Frost & Sullivan European Personal Care  Active Ingredient Company of the Year.

"Regulatory compatibility and targeted activity of Sederma's products categorizes them as the primary ingredient manufacturer for personal care active ingredients. Consistent focus of Sederma on developing product lines that are flexible and adaptable to the end product needs are a key differentiator for the Company in the market place." said Dr. Nandhini Rajagopal, industry analyst for chemicals, materials & foods at Frost & Sullivan.

Sederma's Managing Director Arnaud Fournial commented "We are proud of this unbiased, third-party recognition that distinguishes and values our capacity and willingness to provide our customers with cutting edge innovative and quality products that best match the expectations and needs of the market."

Frost & Sullivan also highlighted that Sederma's strong focus on research and development allows it to ably address the ever demanding niche care segments (eg. anti-ageing leg care). This statement is corroborated with the recent implementation of a research program dedicated to the discovery of new phytomolecules of interest.

"Key ingredient concentration optimization by Sederma helps personal care product manufacturers with an alternative option, cost effectiveness and product performance," said Dr. Rajagopal, who added that the award confirms Sederma's understanding of its customer's regulatory and economic constraints.

Fournial concluded: "This prize rewards 50 years in serving the beauty industry with the credo of ever better satisfying customers and answering consumer needs."
