Seppic announce nutricosmetics acquisition
EPI France, a specialist for over 20 years in the development and manufacture of active ingredients of natural origin for the nutricosmetics and beauty care markets, has been acquired by Seppic
EPI France (Extraction Purification Innovation France) is a French family-owned company with a flagship ingredient, Ceramosides, whose oral and topical efficacy on skin beauty has been scientifically proven and validated by clinical studies. Seppic has been distributing this ingredient for over 10 years. This acquisition strengthens Seppic's expertise and know-how in botanical extraction and its position as a supplier of ingredients for the beauty market.
The nutricosmetics market represents between 6 and 7 billion dollars in 2020 on a global scale, with a growth rate of 8 to 10% per year. This dynamism echoes the rise of the holistic beauty concept and the strong demand from consumers who are increasingly looking for food supplements that combine effectiveness, quality and naturalness.
