Giorgio Dell'Acqua, a regular contributor to Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine, launched a new company named Freedom Actives. Based in New Jersey, its focus is on the development and supply of natural ingredients for finished product companies by, according to Dell'Acqua, “Creating harmony between the growing demand of a sustainable and ethical ingredients supply chain, and the need to support cultural diversity of communities in emerging, developing countries worldwide.”
Dell'Acqua explained that the company's choices serve the good of rural communities by extending their added value into the global market, but also by developing the local economy. His philosophy is that high social and environmental commitment in the supply chain is achieved by sustainable actions aiming to conserve all of earth’s resources and imparting a respect for nature. Specifically, he stressed, "The key is re-investing the company’s revenues into environmental and social microfinance programs."
Currently, the company sources a full range of natural and organic products, including vegetable oils, butters and waxes, vegetable extracts, natural scrubs and natural encapsulating system. It also provides expertise on the encapsulation of plant extracts, fragrances, oils, actives, and flavors for food, home and personal care; customized ingredients; customized medical devices for dermatological applications; and educational programs for skin and hair car.
Overall, the 2012 NY SCC Suppliers' Day was a great success, stretching the line of attendees out the entrance and to the parking lot as the doors opened the first day. Exhibitors and attendees alike felt that the visitor traffic was good, the discussions held were great, and seeing friends and colleagues again was fantastic.
