The ultimate symbol of personality, hair requires special care due to its composition and the very different natures of each type. However, for everyone, hair reflects our individual health and beauty. Consumers’ expectations for products for their hair are growing rapidly to match their ever-increasing need for more healthy, beautiful hair. 

Beauty Industry Awards

Givaudan Active Beauty is very thrilled to announce that PrimalHyal™ Gold, the first oil soluble hyaluronic acid dedicated to make-up, has won the global Beauty Industry Award as being the Best Color Cosmetics Ingredient. This recognition by the cosmetics industry experts highlights Active Beauty’s expertise to develop specific and dedicated active ingredients for make-up segment.
