Seppic strengthens its position in the nutricosmetics market

EPI France, specialized for over 20 years in the development and manufacture of active ingredients of natural origin for the nutricosmetics and cosmetics markets, joins Seppic.

EPI France (Extraction Purification Innovation France) is a family-owned French company with unique know-how. The high level of quality and performance applied to the manufacture of its ingredients enables EPI to offer the market one of its flagship ingredients, Ceramosides, whose oral and topical efficacy on skin beauty has been scientifically proven and validated by clinical studies. Seppic has been distributing this ingredient for over 10 years.

Already a recognized player in the cosmetics market, Seppic is a forerunner in the nutricosmetics market, and for the past ten years has been supporting its customers in the development of beauty supplements worldwide.

This acquisition reinforces Seppic's expertise and know-how in botanical extraction and its position as a supplier of high-quality ingredients for the beauty market. With the transfer of know-how and EPI's in-house production tools, Seppic now controls the entire research, development and industrialization process, from raw material extraction to active ingredients.

The nutricosmetics market will be worth between $6 and $7 billion worldwide by 2020, with annual growth of between 8 and 10%. This dynamism echoes the rise of the holistic beauty concept and strong demand from consumers, who are increasingly turning to food supplements that combine efficacy, quality and naturalness.

Jean Baptiste Dellon, General Manager of Seppic, comments: ". This acquisition opens up new growth prospects for Seppic in the cosmetics and nutricosmetics markets. We are delighted to welcome the EPI France teams to Seppic. Our long-standing cooperation and the values of expertise, quality and customer care that we share with EPI France will enable us to rapidly exploit synergies for the development and marketing of new ingredients."

Valérie Bizot, President and co-founder of EPI France, comments: "Our partnership with Seppic has always been very fruitful and we are convinced that with an innovative company like Seppic, the know-how and skills developed by EPI France will continue to progress and be valued."
