Givaudan announced the inauguration of its new active cosmetic ingredients fermentation line in Pomacle, France. The CHF 11 million investment in the extension of the production capacity is Givaudan’s most important infrastructure investment in active cosmetic ingredients (ACI) to date.

This investment is aligned with Givaudan’s 2020 ambition to become a significant player in the ACI space. The new production line will support the Company in meeting the fast growing demand of its customers for innovative and sustainably sourced products used in cosmetic application.

Givaudan CEO Gilles Andrier, present in Pomacle for the inauguration said:

“Givaudan acquired Soliance in June 2014 to grow its ACI business and followed this with the acquisition of Induchem in August 2015. The extension of this production line is another example of our commitment to ACI and to our local and global customers who have a growing interest in cosmetics.”
