The British Beauty Council are excited to introduce you to our Patron Vivimed!
We spoke with Daniel Brown, Research & Development Biotechnology Lead at Vivimed, to find out more about the company, why they wanted to become a Patron, and what excites them about the beauty industry.
Who are Vivimed and what work do you do as a company?
At Vivimed Speciality Ingredients our key focus is to provide solutions that catalyse our partners success. As a manufacturer of ingredients and raw materials for the cosmetics and personal care industry, our areas of expertise include both synthetic and natural technologies. With the recent opening of our new Biotechnology Research laboratory at our Manchester site, we believe we have an obligation to both consumers and the planet to develop naturally derived cosmetic ingredients for sustainable beauty. With a dedicated R&D and Applications team, we pride ourselves on the knowledge and expertise that comes from being suppliers to the world’s most creative companies and are constantly working on new innovative products to develop and grow the speciality ingredients business.
What parts of the British beauty industry excites you most?
Hair care excites us the most as it’s perhaps the most striking statement a person can make about their style and personality. Vivimed develops, manufactures and supplies a full range of hair dye intermediates under the Jarocol® trademark. These are supplied to manufacturers, both domestic and multinational across the globe.
Why did you want to become a Patron of the British Beauty Council?
We believe in the value of the beauty industry and its massive contribution to people’s lives and the UK economy via the high street and in supporting small businesses. We understand the importance of supporting the Beauty Industry via organisations like the British Beauty Council.
What are you looking forward to, as a company, in 2021?
Increasing our sustainability. This will be vital for the ongoing future of the planet and on a more selfish level for the viability of our business. Vivimed is proud to launch its own Biotechnology division in 2021 which will focus on developing sustainable actives for the hair, scalp and skin care market.
