Symrise has opened a new facility for the production of cosmetic ingredients in Germany. The flavors and fragrances manufacturer invested €15 million in the project in a bid to increase capacity and efficiency at the Holzminden site.
“Opening a production plant for cosmetic ingredients strengthens our leading role in the development and production of innovative ingredients for producers of cosmetics and personal care products,” said Gabriele Vielhaber, Senior Vice President Botanicals and Product Protection, Cosmetics Ingredients and Global Head of Actives at Symrise.
“We have established and built our expertise in cosmetic ingredients over many decades. With our sound knowledge of formulations, consumers and the market, as well as our application expertise, we are supporting our customers in developing personal care products. Also our innovative strength has helped us set standards in cosmetic ingredients. We will continue to develop that expertise.”
The company is planning further facilities in Germany and the US.
