Albert Jané, COO and co-founder of Vytrus, said that “growing again above 30% in sales and profits in a year as complex as 2022 is a sign of the strength and scalability of Vytrus Biotech’s business model”. For his part, Óscar Expósito, CSO and co-founder of Vytrus has highlighted that “in addition to the good business figures, 2022 has given us the award of a triple patent in Europe, USA, and Japan that reinforces the company’s commitment to lead technological innovation and set trends in the cosmetics sector”.
The executives of the biotech company have expressed their satisfaction with the good reception that the 2022 launches are having in the market. Specifically, Elaya Renova™ (an ingredient for hair care) has been awarded the innovation prizes at thein-cosmetics Latin America and in-cosmetics Asia 2022 fairs, while Quora Noni™ biomics (an active for microbiota and skin rejuvenation, for the first time in cosmetics) has been awarded the first position at the Cosmetorium 2022 Awards, a reference fair for the cosmetics industry in Spain.
The company’s innovation has also been widely recognized at 2022. On the one hand, Vytrus won the First BBVA Award for innovation in environmental sustainability. On the other hand, Vytrus was awarded in the Cinco Días awards for Business Innovation in its 2022 edition at an event held in Madrid.
In the last week of March, the company will participate as an exhibitor at in-cosmetics Global 2022 in Barcelona, the world’s leading cosmetics trade fair, where it will present its latest launch from plant stem cells Photobiome™, an ingredient that, for the first time in cosmetics, helps the skin’s microbiota (the most superficial bacterial layer) to photoprotect itself, while improving skin aging damage caused by solar radiation.
As a result of its innovation, Photobiome™ is a finalist in two industry benchmark competitions. On the one hand, the innovation awards of in-cosmetics Global 2023 (Best Ingredient Awards), the world’s leading trade fair for cosmetic ingredients, held this year in Barcelona. On the other hand, the product is also a finalist in the BSB Innovation Awards, a global benchmark award from Germany. For both competitions, the juries that evaluate the product are made up of the industry’s major customers, who assess the degree of innovation that the product brings to the cosmetics market.
