Clariant and Plant Advanced Technologies (PAT) to revolutionize cosmetics industry
29th November 2019
- Plant Milking Technology is a process that allows plant cultivation in aeroponic and optimized conditions which facilitates the sustainable recovery of the desired compounds. When gently submitted to exudation, the living roots are delivering phytochemical profiles that are unmatched in their performances, concentrations and values.
- Target Binding Technology ensures an efficient and unrivaled way of identifying the compounds in complex mixtures which support the activities of key-relevance for innovative cosmetic claims.
Jean-Paul Fèvre, President of PAT added: “We are delighted to join our forces with Clariant, one of the leading providers of active ingredients for the cosmetic industry. Thanks to their vision, expertise and knowledge, we will bring together new outstanding possibilities to the cosmetic market in terms of naturality, innovation and performance. PAT has always been specialized in sourcing unsourceable rare active plant compounds in a sustainable innovative way and is very enthusiastic to establish such a strong partnership based on these common values.”
Uniqueness and performance are key-drivers of choice when selecting plants of various origins and ecosystems. Moreover, the sustainable technology also provides full traceability, from the seed to the final active ingredient. With the Plant Milking Technology, harvesting occurs several times a year, and the plants, cultivated in aeroponic conditions are not destroyed: the roots can regrow almost indefinitely. All of these elements are in favor of a sustainable, traceable and eco-friendly process, as everything is located on a single site. There is no competition with agricultural lands which ensures efficient use of planet resources and peace of mind when it comes to regulatory compliance including the Nagoya Protocol.
