The distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with bitop, a manufacturer of cosmetics ingredients based Dortmund, Germany, to market their products in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Singapore.

DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials will provide business development, marketing, sales, logistics, and distribution services for bitop’s range of cosmetic active ingredients, including bitop Ectoin natural and Glycoin natural that are used for anti-aging and sun protection formulations.

DKSH has been entrusted by bitop to grow their personal care business in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Singapore, building on the existing agreement in Indonesia, Portugal, Spain, South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam. The partnership was expanded thanks to DKSH’s extensive distribution network, highly specialized commercial and technical teams, as well as strong capabilities in logistics and value-added services, including technical and regulatory support.

We are elated upon the further expansion of our partnership with DKSH in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia. Our focus and core value have always been to provide ultra-high quality and high purity bioactives and build successful customer relationships. DKSH has been an excellent and very valuable partner in supporting us. We look forward to continued growth and inspiring customer-success stories in all new territories partnered with DKSH,” said Eva Galik, CEO, bitop.
