An ingredient and formulated product supplier for the cosmetics and personal care industry has been opened in Lincoln Park, N.J., USA. Sytheon Ltd. was formed by industry veteran Ratan K. Chaudhuri, PhD, who assumes the role of president of the company.
In addition to being an ingredient and formulated product supplier, Sytheon will also provide custom synthesis and custom formulations for cosmetics and personal care companies. Evidence-based and patented cosmetic skin care ingredients will be developed and marketed at the company.
The company's initial focus is in the areas of controlling skin pigmentation, the reduction of wrinkles and inflammatory responses. Synoveo HR is the company's current product and is an ingredient designed to modulate skin pigmentation. The ingredient also reportedly has a broad antibacterial activity, which reportedly may help reduce the use of conventional preservatives.
Chaudhuri has been in the cosmetics industry for nearly 20 years. Prior to starting the company, he held R&D positions at both EMD Chemicals Inc and International Specialty Products. He has 63 US and numerous foreign patents and is a member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
