Givaudan has acquired the Swiss cosmetic ingredients maker Induchem to beef up its portfolio of antiaging and other cosmetic active ingredients. Induchem, which has annual sales of about $25 million and employs 65 people, also brings expertise in biocatalysis and biochemical synthesis. Givaudan, best known as a maker of flavors and fragrances, says the transaction furthers its goal to be a “significant player” in the cosmetic actives business. Givaudan bought the ingredients maker Soliance last year.
