The company behind a Portage la Prairie pea-processing plant is going into the plant-based cosmetics business in a big way.
Roquette recently announced a “strengthened” arrangement with Sytheon, a U.S.-based specialty ingredient company for the personal care market in a media release.
The two are partnering to produce cosmetic ingredients and cosmetic products derived from plant-based material. They’re planning to promote a handful of new products that have sprung from the joint venture at the upcoming In-Cosmetics trade show in Paris on April 2 to 4.
Roquette has signalled its interest in the growing market for plant-derived cosmetics by founding a Beauté by Roquette brand that it intends to use to champion its products.
