Jean-Yves Berthon, president of the Greentech Group, was awarded the French Society of Cosmetology Award by the Société Française de Cosmétologie (SFC).
The award, given by the SFC every two years, honors a prominent personality for services rendered to the field of cosmetology.
Berthon founded Greentech in 1992 at 32 years old with a doctorate in biology and a vision of vegetable biotechnology. A few decades later, he governs a group consisting of three companies, dedicated to the fields of vegetables, marine life and microorganisms: Greentech, Greensea and BIovitis. The group develops and produces active ingredients for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and functional food; these ingredients are obtained from complex plants, algae, microalgae and microorganism mechanisms from all over the world.
