Givaudan rebrands cosmetic business as ‘Active Beauty’

11 Apr 2016

Givaudan’s active cosmetics business is rebranded as ‘Active Beauty’, with the mission to bring beauty to the world. The unveiling of the new identity coincides with in-cosmetics Paris, the leading global business event for personal care ingredients.

Following the acquisition of French bio-sourced active cosmetic ingredients company Soliance in 2014 and science-based cosmetic ingredients firm Induchem in 2015, Givaudan now offers customers and consumers around the world a range of innovative products and technology under one single identity, Active Beauty.

Establishing one unified identity is a key step towards our 2020 ambition to make Givaudan a significant player in the fast-growing active cosmetics business. Our customers remain at the heart of what we do and the new identity will enhance the proximity of our business relationship with customers and consumers alike.

Maurizio Volpi, President of Givaudan’s Fragrance Division said: “Our new Active Beauty business offers an expanded portfolio of products supported by a strong R&D and marketing platform to drive future development and innovation in the active cosmetics space. The new identity will further strengthen the integration of Soliance and Induchem as well as our capabilities to bring business benefits to our customers and beauty to consumers.”

Frédérique Lafosse, Head of Active Beauty said: “This is an important moment for Givaudan Active Beauty as we launch our new single identity for our growing business, which is crucial to building a distinctive brand. We’re delighted to share it with the industry, beginning with in-cosmetics Paris, where customers from around the world will be able to experience the brand up close and explore our newly integrated range of products.”
