Givaudan invests in traditional Chinese medicine

Givaudan’s Active Beauty business intends to expand its offering through new proprietary product line leveraging traditional Chinese medicine knowledge. To that end, Givaudan has concluded a strategic partnership with Draco Natural Products, a global leader in the supply of high quality botanical extract ingredients for nutritional supplements, functional foods, OTC, and personal care. The two companies will jointly work on research and development of active botanical ingredients formulated using the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Givaudan intends to use these new ingredients for producing topical products to improve and enhance skin and hair health.

We are always looking for innovative solutions and Draco brings to us an impressive expertise in effective naturally-derived products. We will enhance these ingredients and make them ideal for our skin and hair care Active Beauty ingredients portfolio. We strongly believe it will respond to increasing consumer needs in products that contribute to their health and well-being,” said Maurizio Volpi, President Fragrance Division at Givaudan.

According to Givaudan, Draco has developed a proprietary extraction process which allows the delivery of extracts that are distinctive, traceable and sustainable.

With this strategic partnership, we will introduce to the market unique products that have been designed using natural extracts, that follow the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, and that use all the knowledge of modern science. It is a very exciting moment for us as it opens a new world of possibilities,” added Laurent Bourdeau, Head of Givaudan’s Active Beauty business.
