March 17, 2017

€10 million for facility Le Perray en Yvelines to expand innovation and production capacity.

Leading active ingredient supplier Sederma, part of Croda International Plc, is making a €10 million investment at its facility in Le Perray en Yvelines, France. The investment will expand Sederma’s innovation and production capacity and further consolidate the company as the global market leader in beauty active ingredients.

“This expansion confirms our ambition to retain Sederma’s leadership as the premium provider of cosmetic ingredients for the personal care market,” said Arnaud Fournial, managing director. “We will continue to offer superior innovation and technical support to our customers. This is an exciting period for everyone associated with Sederma and we look forward to further success in the future”.

Product quality continues to be central to Sederma’s product innovations and the new facilities will comply with the Cosmetic Ingredient Good Manufacturing Practice. The expansion will also reduce Sederma’s impact on the environment, ensuring a relative reduction in energy and water consumption, and a decrease in waste from site with a focus on optimizing recycling activities.

With the reinforcement of innovation capabilities and the implementation of novel advanced technologies, Olga Gracioso, Sederma’s marketing director commented, “The interest of the industry in safe and heavily substantiated plant cell culture products continues to grow at a sustained pace. This investment constitutes a robust foundation in developing the next generation of these innovative products."
