The team in the new office is set to focus on delivering Inolex’s portfolio of ingredients, particularly in the alternative preservation space and in the naturals space.
“The location, with its team of technical product and client servicing experts, will focus on delivering INOLEX’s portfolio of industry-leading ingredients particularly in Alternative Preservation solutions and safe, natural and innovative ingredients in the beauty and personal care industry,” the company confirms.
France in focus
The new office confirms a strategy for Inolex of focusing on building its presence in Europe via establishing a strong base in France. The ingredients player also made an acquisition in 2015 of a producer of natural ingredients in the country.
“INOLEX is increasing its presence in Europe with the establishment of its new Paris, France sales office,” the company says.
“France has historically been the center of beauty and luxury goods in Europe. Our acquisition of ieS LABO, INOLEX Provence in Oraison, France in 2015 and our growing European sales office represent the value we place in being close to the source of our materials and to our partners,” notes David Plimpton, CEO of Inolex.
Founded in 1986, ieS LABO is a producer of natural ingredients that are used in cosmetics for their wellness benefits and consumer appeal. ieS LABO is organic certified by Ecocert France, as well as by the National Organic Program (USA), NATRUE (Germany), and COSMOS (Europe).
Inolex says it has bolstered its sales team with two new appointments, along with the newly opened office.
Anais Alemagna joins the team as technical sales manager, and Mathilde Dufresne comes on board as commercial sales assistant.
