Sederma has been awarded by Frost & Sullivan with the 2012 European New Product Innovation Award for its product Legance™, anti-ageing for leg care.

The selection of this award comes through in-depth interviews and primary market analysis conducted by Frost & Sullivan’s industry analyst team and is based on four criteria: efficacy, technology, consumer benefits and potential market penetration.

Produced through the use of an environment-friendly technology (super critical CO2 extraction), Legance is the first active of its kind in the market to be designed to provide anti-ageing benefits especially for the legs. “Frost & Sullivan’s competitive benchmarking confirms that with proven scientific evidence, cost effectiveness and high efficacy, Legance is best poised to penetrate the leg care market, a niche developing segment of the personal care market, which currently lacks an ingredient targeting such challenges,” says Sederma in a release.
