Celebrating the award, Fabrice Lefèvre, R&D and marketing director of Induchem said, “Our R&D and marketing teams have worked incredibly hard to create Neodermyl, a product we’re extremely proud of. The other finalists this year all had fantastic products, so to have been recognized with this prestigious award is a real honor. 2013 has so far been a very productive year for us and we look forward to the future.”
Now in its third year, The Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award recognizes the development of a novel active or functional ingredient that demonstrates newly welcomed benefits to manufacturers and end-users.
Silver prize went to Symrise with SymHair Force 1631, a natural anti-hair loss active from a sustainable source of microalgae that fortifies hair while improving density. The judges were especially impressed with the ingredient’s proven ability to increase hair shaft elongation by up to 13%.
BiotechMarine was awarded bronze for its new anti-dandruff ingredient, Esculane– a natural active ingredient of marine origin – and was recognized for its important work into the condition that, despite regularly being studied by scientists all over the world, is yet to be fully understood.
Entries were judged by a panel of industry experts including: Claudie Willemin, president of the SFC; Shuliang Zhang, PhD, clinical site leader of Unilever Research & Development Shanghai; Prithwiraj Maitra, PhD, center of excellence leader for cleansing, hair and color cosmetics at Johnson & Johnson and Angela Eppler, PhD, senior R&D scientist at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare.
