SYNTIVIA offers custom development services to cosmetic companies looking for an innovative approach to develop and market their active ingredients:

Custom development, encapsulation delivery system, trial formulation and marketing support

Discover the best way to deliver your active ingredient.

To protect an active cosmetic ingredient and/or optimize its effects, it may be useful to contain it in particles or specific emulsions in order to ensure stabilization or controlled delivery. Our encapsulation technology allows to :

  • Stabilize an active ingredient with regard to external factors (light, oxidation) or in the formula itself
  • Optimize the targeted effect and improve the penetration or biological availability of an active ingredient
  • Extend effect duration through controlled liberation of the product
  • Improve product texture.

Determine the best formulation for your active ingredient.

We study how your ingredient responds to different types of formulation to optimize the targeted effects and to ensure ingredient stability. Should you wish to test out different types of formulation before launching your product on the market, Syntivia creates trial or reference formulas. This step helps you test and validate the incorporation and stability of your ingredient. Trial and reference formulas help you on your way to efficient in vivo tests.

Launch your cosmetic on the cosmetic market.

Our custom development services also include benchmarking and competitive intelligence in order to help you tackle the challenges you’ll be facing when launching your product on the market. Syntivia conducts custom marketing studies upon request to help you decide on an efficient marketing strategy. Our hi-tech analysis tools also provide you with scientific illustrations and documents to present your cosmetic product to its best advantage.
