DKSH France wins Silver Innovation Award at Cosmet’Agora 2019

DKSH France has won the Silver Innovation Award at “Le Prix de la Formulation” during the eleventh edition of Cosmet’Agora 2019.

Lyon, France, January 23, 2019 – DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading ingredients and specialty chemicals distributor, won the prestigious Silver Innovation Award for its unique formulation “Sili-gomme primer”, which was developed at DKSH’s state-of-the-art innovation center in Lyon.


This is not DKSH’s first recognition at the formulation award, which was launched in 2014 to great success. In 2015, DKSH won an innovation award for its unique “Total Shield Cushion Formulation SPF 25” skin foundation.

 

DKSH’s new 2019 winning formulation, chosen from around 70 submissions, is based on a thickening agent that can help formulators to develop new concepts with surprising textures. It was developed using a combination of innovative raw materials originating from DKSH’s valued international business partners, including Medolla, Nagase, Odycea, Schülke and Sumitomo Seika. DKSH Personal Care collaborates with its innovation and sourcing specialists around the world through its global network of twelve dedicated personal care innovation centers.

 

DKSH’s innovation center in Lyon, established in 2009, this year celebrates ten years of unparalleled innovation and formulation development. Thanks to its experienced specialists and cutting-edge technology, the center provides a wide range of highly valued innovation and formulation support to DKSH France’s large personal care customer base. Services offered include: idea generation and conceptualization, new product development, product demonstration, technical training, trouble-shooting and tailor-made solutions.

 

Olivier Patricola, Director, Personal Care Industry Europe, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded for the second time at ‘Le Prix de la Formulation’, especially during the tenth anniversary of our French innovation center. We would like to thank the council members of the French Society of Cosmetology for this great recognition. I would like to congratulate and thank the DKSH Personal Care team in France and especially our innovation center, lead by Jean-François Malaval, Manager, Technical Services and Innovation, for all their hard work over the past ten years and their efforts in developing this unique formulation. We look forward to showcasing our exciting ‘Sili-gomme primer’ winning formula in April at In-Cosmetics Global in Paris.”
