SEPPIC presented with Green Ingredient Award at in-cosmetics 2016


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.”
