Univar celebrates one year anniversary of its European Personal Care laboratory
Stand D200 Hall 1A – In-Cosmetics – 21-23 April 2009 - Munich
Munich, Germany, 21 April 2009 – Local and international manufacturers aiming to find high quality products and creative formulations in the personal care market need look no further than Univar’s booth at In-Cosmetics 2009.
Just over one year ago, Univar launched its European laboratory. The lab was set up to allow the company to respond rapidly to fast moving trends in the Personal Care industry. Customers have access to a large database of new formulations covering an extensive range of Personal Care products. Moreover, the laboratory provides technical support in formulation and problem solving issues.
Univar’s laboratory creates product marketing initiatives that assist the company’s world-class suppliers in demonstrating functional quality of their specialty chemical ingredients. This innovation allows Univar to offer further services to suppliers lacking laboratory capabilities in Europe, as all suppliers can benefit from technical knowledge that Univar’s European laboratory delivers.
In order to ensure that Univar’s sales people are up to speed on all the latest developments in Personal Care, the company has started a web-based training programme which has been rolled out throughout Europe. “By providing our sales force with technical know-how of formulations and ingredients, we can offer more added value to our suppliers and customers.” said Henri-Marc Perrin, Univar European Business Manager.
