Posted: February 17, 2009

page 2 of 2

To achieve a presence in the high-growth botanical actives market, several major chemical companies have made strategically important acquisitions. For example, Croda has acquired Sederma, and Cognis has acquired Laboratoires Sérobiologiques. Other major botanical companies—such as Bio-Botanica, Gattefossé, Active Organics and Alban Muller—are making moves from extracts into the actives market by developing substantiated active products.

Kline’s "Specialty Actives and Active Delivery Systems for Personal Care 2008: U.S. and Europe" report provides a detailed analysis of the current and future business and competitive landscape for specialty actives and active delivery systems used in personal care products. It covers estimated consumption and sales by major supplier for vitamins, polysaccharides, botanicals, proteins and peptides, enzymes and coenzymes—as well as other types of active ingredients. It also explores active ingredient use by functionality—including antiaging, anticellulite and skin firming action—as well as the delivery systems and technology used to impart these benefits.
