AMSilk joins SEPAWA strategic technology group
Germany-based silk-derived ingredients provider AMSIlk has become the latest company to join the SEPAWA Cosmetic Applications and Technologies (CAT) specialist group.

The group currently has 11 members, comprising a number of manufacturers and suppliers to the cosmetic and personal care industry that includes the likes of BASF, Henkel, Dr. Straetmans and Covestro.

The aim of the group is to share the lastest information, research and development and product launches concerning the formulation of cosmetics and personal care products, specifically with a focus on ingredients and applications.

AMSIlk brings its naturals expertise to the table

Focused on the industry in Germany, but including the bigger global players, the addition of AMSilk will bring the company’s expertise in synthetic silk biopolymers, which are used to bring functional properties to natural-based ingredients.

“Earning admittance to the SEPAWA CAT-Specialist Group is immensely valuable to AMSilk,”​ said AMSilk CEO Jens Klein. “It allows us to intensify and establish new and valuable contacts with industry leaders.”

“To be a part of SEPAWA CAT-Specialist Group for us is a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas regarding the latest topics, developments and innovations with experts from the cosmetics field”,​ adds AMSilk Manager of Medtech & Aesthetics Dr. Kristin Schacht.
