Roquette pushes forward in the personal care market: what next?
Having now established itself as a real contender in the ingredients industry for beauty and personal care, Roquette says it is now set for the next stage in its ‘ambitious strategy’.

Bénédicte Courel has stepped up as General Manager of the cosmetics business unit at Roquette in the past year, and took us through some of Roquette’s highlights at the recent in-cosmetics Global trade event.

Beauté by Roquette: expanding

The company says it is expanding Beauté by Roquette, its ‘innovative and specialized’ offering of high-performing and natural-based ingredients for cosmetics. Further, it has also reinforced its strategic partnership with Sytheon, an innovative USA-based specialty ingredient company for the personal care market.

Roquette says that this partnership is a ‘first step’ in accelerating innovation and enables Roquette Beauté to benefit from an ecosystem of expertise.

“Fully in line with Roquette’s positioning and its growth strategy, the move springs from Roquette’s belief that ‘Sustainable beauty is all about skin health and nutrition’,” the company confirms.

Courel, General Manager of the cosmetics at Roquette, said: “This partnership represents a great innovation accelerator for Roquette Beauté, as we intend to further develop our business by creating brand-new ingredients for the cosmetics market.

Two new actives were on show at in-cosmetics this year, along with three new plant-based ingredients for sensorial benefits, including hydration,smooth and lasting protection for both hair and skin, moisturizing properties and skin barrier repair.

Future plans

Moving forward from this base, Roquette says it is setting bold goals.

“Within five years, 50% of its product portfolio for the Cosmetics market will be made up of new ingredients and solutions that do not yet exist,” the company explains.

“It will also open a center of expertise with an experimental laboratory and a collaborative space in the Paris region in 2020 to support partnerships and collaboration.”

The Group has also organically grown its teams dedicated to cosmetics and expanded its footprint, with a presence in Europe, North America and Asia.
