Leveraging the power of nature

We recently boosted our Active Beauty offering with the acquisition of Naturex, a global leader in plant extraction.

Naturex specialises in crafting and sourcing innovative and effective ingredients for advanced natural cosmetic formulations, with a strong emphasis on sustainability. The company has built a robust sourcing network through its ‘Pathfinder’ programme, which is based on respecting the specific needs of each environment and providing a rich source of inspiration for a benefit sharing impact.

Joining forces will enable us to expand our portfolio of botanical solutions and explore some exciting new avenues in future.

“Nature is the source of inspiration from which we build our innovations. We will look at leveraging Naturex’s expertise in mastering the power of nature to offer our customers a wide variety of inspirational and sustainable botanical solutions.”

Laurent Bourdeau, Head of Active Beauty

New centre of excellence

Following the acquisition, we have also relocated our Centre of Excellence for Green Fractionation to the Naturex site in Avignon, France. Combining the R&D capabilities of both companies will help us to create pioneering new products and remain at the forefront of botanical beauty innovation.

The integration of Naturex’s Personal Care division into Givaudan Active Beauty was officially launched at the in-cosmetics Global trade fair in Paris on 2 April 2019.
