Investment in skin microbiome research continues

Givaudan continues to invest in Active Beauty and its metagenomics platform to boost its pioneering position in the microbiome market.

As the only fragrance company with in-house microbiome research capabilities, Givaudan remains committed to making strategic investments that will push the boundaries of scientific innovation to continue leading the microbiome trend.

Following the installation of state-of-the-art automation equipment at the Applied Microbiomics Centre of Excellence in Toulouse, France, Givaudan will accelerate the high throughput screenings (HTS) to offer more disruptive solutions for customers. With over 15 years' experience in the field of microbiomics, Givaudan Active Beauty continues to develop active cosmetic ingredients, designed to activate, protect or balance the skin microbiota.

Laurent Bourdeau, head of Active Beauty, said: "Not only are these investments in line with our 2020 company strategy, but our astonishing advancements in microbiomics allow us to bring ground-breaking cosmetic concepts to new and existing customers. As the microbiome trend continues to grow, our teams will be at the forefront of this exciting area of scientific research."

Expert scientists at Givaudan were the first to discover the creation of ‘microbiome activated’ ingredients as well as 'microbiome protecting' agents, resulting in two award-winning active cosmetic ingredients, Brightenyl and Revivyl. Brightenyl, the first microbiome activated skin brightener, won a Gold and Bronze Innovation Award in 2015 at in-cosmetics Global and in-cosmetics Latin America, respectively. The first holistic skin renewal accelerator, Revivyl, won Gold for Best Innovation Award at in-cosmetics Latin America and in-cosmetics Asia in 2017.

Maurizio Volpi, president of Givaudan's Fragrance Division, said: "It's incredibly fascinating for a fragrance house to lead the creation of new active cosmetic ingredients in microbiomics. I'm very proud of the team in our Applied Microbiomics Centre of Excellence which is constantly pioneering the ingredients of tomorrow. This also includes our teams around the world working alongside our customers to create inventive new products for their markets."
