New lab will develop consumer product prototypes
Chemical distributor Univar has announced it has opened a personal care laboratory in the US. The new laboratory, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be used to develop consumer product prototypes based on market trends and will demonstrate the functionality of speciality ingredients to meet customer needs, according to the company.
“The personal care industry is a very tactile one in which consumers like to see and feel the benefits of ingredients,” commented Denise Elias-Costrini, Univar’s national marketing manager – personal care. “We have started sharing our first round of prototypes with customers and received excellent reviews.”
