Seppic strengthens its position in the nutricosmetics market with the acquisition of EPI France


EPI France, a specialist for more than 20 years in the development and manufacture of active ingredients of natural origin for the nutricosmetics and cosmetics markets, joins Seppic

EPI France (Extraction Purification Innovation France) is a French family owned company with a unique know-how.

The high level of quality and performance applied to the manufacturing of its ingredients allows EPI to offer on the market one of its flagship ingredients, CERAMOSIDES, whose oral and topical efficacy on skin beauty has been scientifically proven and validated by clinical studies.

Seppic has been distributing this ingredient for more than 10 years.

Already recognised in the cosmetics market, Seppic is a forerunner in the nutricosmetics market and has been assisting its customers in the development of beauty supplements worldwide for the past 10 years.

This acquisition strengthens Seppic's expertise and know-how in botanical extraction and its position as a supplier of high quality ingredients for the beauty market.

With the transfer of know-how and EPI's internal production tools, Seppic masters the entire process of research, development and industrialisation, from the extraction of raw materials to the active ingredients.

The global nutricosmetics market was valued at $6–7 billion in 2020, with a growth rate of 8–10% per year. This dynamism echoes the rise of the holistic beauty concept and the strong demand from consumers who are increasingly looking for food supplements that combine effectiveness, quality and naturalness.

Jean Baptiste Dellon, CEO of Seppic, stated: “This acquisition opens up new growth opportunities for Seppic in the cosmetics and dietary supplements markets."
