Azelis expands fine chemicals offering with Seqens agreement

Azelis has entered into a distribution agreement with Seqens Advanced Cosmetics, a manufacturer of tailor-made ingredients and solutions.

Effective immediately, Azelis customers in France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg will have access to Seqens’ acyl chlorides, produced in France.

Azelis said the agreement reinforces itspartnership with Seqens, which is already established in the personal care segment, and the addition of acyl chlorides, used in the production of cosmetic active ingredients and perfumes, perfectly complements Azelis’ lateral value chain.

“The addition of their product line to our portfolio provides us with a more complex type of acyl chloride, which we will be able to bring to our customers to use in their synthesis applications,” said Pierre Nidercorn, product and sales manager at Azelis.

Karima Benaissi, marketing and sales manager at Seqens Advanced Cosmetics added: “We are looking forward to another partnership with the Azelis team.

“Their market knowledge, extensive network, and customer intimacy - along with their priorities of sustainability, innovation, and digitalization - proved that they are the right partner for us to work with.”

FEATURES

COVER STORY: NovoRetinTM: the natural retinol alternative

Retinol and structurally related molecules of the group of retinoids are well-known for their strong anti-aging effects and their use in the treatment of acne. However, most retinoids are not stable in formulations and the treatment with retinoids can lead to side effects, such as dry skin, photosensitivity, and redness, limiting the chronic therapeutic application and largely preventing the use in cosmetics. NovoRetin™ is a plant-based active ingredient that can increase naturally occurring retinoic acid in the skin and thereby induce retinol-like effects without the need to apply retinoids topically on the skin.
