DianaPlantSciences, an innovative player in concentrated actives’ production through plant cell culture dedicated to cosmetic, nutraceuticals and nutrition, is announcing the signing of an agreement with Solabia, a leading manufactuer of natural and vegetal ingredients. This agreement focuses on the production of a novel bilberry extract dedicated to the cosmetic industry.
Thanks to its unique mastery in optimizing plant cells’ purity in active metabolites by selecting the best performing cell lines, DianaPlantSciences will supply Solabia with bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) cells rich in polyphenols, especially in procyanidins, which are almost colorless compared to the anthocyanins usually found in customary bilberry and blueberry extracts. DianaPlantSciences thus provides Solabia with a potent, highly innovative and differentiating raw material for the benefit of the final cosmetic product.
In the scope of this partnership, Solabia will, bring its expertise in extracting natural vegetal actives, its know-how in substantiating the benefits of bioactives and its marketing experience in the commercialization of ingredients for the cosmetic industry.
‘This agreement highlights the complementary capabilities of two key actors whose expertises in the field of biotechnologies are converging to enable the commercialization of a highly innovative product which meet the consumer expectations for proven efficacy while preserving the environment and biodiversity” declares Marc Philouze, President of DianaPlantSciences.
DianaPlantSciences and Solabia will exhibit at the In-Cosmetics Tradeshow in Paris from April 16 to 18, 2013.
