Best Ingredient Awards winners announced at in-cosmetics 2016


Givaudan and Agrimer take home Best Ingredient Awards at in-cosmetics in Paris

Givaudan (Soliance — Induchem) and Agrimer scooped the Gold awards for their Active and Functional ingredients in the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Awards at in-cosmetics 2016 in Paris yesterday evening.
Givaudan (Soliance — Induchem) impressed judges with its Neurophroline™, an active ingredient, which is the first generation of cosmetic products that is able to block the production of cortisol. Developed from wild indigo seeds and used in Ayurvedic medicine, this active also claims to promote the release of endorphins.
Meanwhile, Agrimer took the top prize for Best Functional Ingredient with its Seaweed Caviar, during the event’s highly respected awards ceremony. Made from narube polysaccharides, these 3D ‘shell-less’ pearls serve as vectors for active ingredients. The beads melt on the skin without the need to remove any residue.
The 2016 global show saw Gold, Silver and Bronze awards given in both the Active
and Functional ingredients categories. A total of 16 products were shortlisted by a
panel of industry experts.
In the Best Functional Ingredients category, Sigmund Kindner took the Silver prize with SiLiglam NATURE, while Ashland won Bronze with its Polyelectrolyte Complex Three (PEC3). Meanwhile, Silver in the Best Active Ingredients category went to Lucas Meyer Cosmetics with Miniporyl™, while Solabia Group took the Bronze with its Redyless ingredient.
More than 500 exhibitors and visitors gathered for the award ceremony hosted in the Restaurant Drouant in Paris, following day two of in-cosmetics 2016.
Fabrice Lefèvre, Marketing and Innovation Director for Givaudan, said of winning Gold in the Active ingredient category: “We have won four years in a row now and I feel that our luck must run out soon! The judges said the simplest factor that they judged on was whether they would incorporate this ingredient into their own brands.
You can be very innovative but if nobody would use the product, it is irrelevant. We are glad the judges deemed our innovation useful and so we are happy to have won.”
Laëtitia Têtedoux, Marketing Manager for Agrimer, which won the Gold Functional ingredient award, said: “We didn’t expect to win because we are a small company in comparison to others that entered. A lot of work went into the ingredient and it took three years to make, using very specific technology.”
The judges said: “Competition was tough with some great entries that show the direction the cosmetic industry is heading and we hope the awards have inspired exhibitors and guests alike at this year’s show.”

SEPPIC takes home top prize in Green Ingredient Award at in-cosmetics in Paris

SEPPIC scooped the Gold award for its innovative Ephemer ingredient during the Green Ingredient Award at in-cosmetics 2016 in Paris last night. The company impressed judges with its product, taking top prize at in-cosmetic’s eagerly anticipated Green Ingredient Awards, which ran in partnership with Organic Monitor.
The winning product is a gametophyte extract, taken from macroalgae cells, and grown in a laboratory and harvested at an ephemeral stage in the life cycle of Undaria Pinnatifida seaweed.
The awards saw five products shortlisted by a panel of industry experts. The Silver award went to Sederma with Majestem, while the Bronze was taken by IBR with its IBR-Pristinizer ingredient.
More than 500 exhibitors and visitors gathered for the award ceremony hosted in the Restaurant Drouant in Paris, following day two of in-cosmetics 2016.
Corinne Stoltz, Global Operational Marketing Manager for SEPPIC, said: “We are very proud to have won this award. I think it is because it is a good, sustainable, green ingredient. It took around five years to develop as it was a product of new technology — it is the first time a company is able to cultivate cells coming from micro algae. There will be many more similar products from us in the future.”
Cathy Laporte, Exhibition Director, said: “Natural and organic is a booming sector of the personal care industry. There have been a number of remarkable innovations over the last year making it a difficult category to judge, but SEPPIC is a worthy winner of this year’s Green Ingredient Award.”
