Lake Personal Care launches UK cosmetics lab facility
A new facility dedicated to driving new product development (NPD) has been launched in the UK by a local ingredients player.

Lake Personal Care is a division of Lake Chemicals and Minerals Ltd, a leading distributor of raw materials and ingredients in the UK & Ireland.

“Lake’s new Redditch based laboratory is dedicated to drive New Product Development in support of customer projects​,” the company says.

“Drawing on Lake’s unrivalled expertise in the personal care market, the NPD laboratory will provide its supplier partners with a centre of excellence to promote their raw materials (cosmetic actives and naturals) into the market place, offering a first class formulation and reformulation service.​”

Innovation a hot focus

New product development was picked out in Cosmetics Design’s recent industry survey as a key area of focus for the European market.

The survey gathered opinion and insight from industry professionals across the supply chain and market segments, and a strong showing of respondents highlighted a focus on creating new products to add to their company’s offering.

“Innovation is the word of the moment,​” confirms the report. “Even taking into account the usually fast-paced nature of the cosmetics and personal care industry, a very strong majority of respondents, at 94%, confirmed that their company intends to introduce new products into the market this year.

“When working out where to innovate, 79% following the trends is a key driver in their company’s direction.”

With this in mind, Lake’s renewed focus on NPD and investment into developing manufacturing facilities appears a savvy move.

Lake Managing Director, Steven Cartlidge said: “This strategic investment in commercially relevant NPD is combined with leading cosmetic ingredients and best-in-class services to forge ultra-dynamic partnerships with customers and supplier partners.”
