MCassab has established three new partnerships to strengthen the company’s portfolio, offering new and more complete solutions for the areas of Personal Care and Pharmacy. Its new market partners are Elkem and SNF, in the area of Personal Care, and Grupo Centroflora, in the Pharma area.
“We are already recognized for providing the pharmaceutical and veterinary industries with active ingredients, excipients and coatings. But it is part of our DNA to find new niche markets in order to meet the different demands of our customers. With the Centroflora Group, we can suggest ingredients for phytotherapeutic and cosmeceutical formulations – with therapeutic action – for both industries, a new and little explored field. For this to become possible, the right partnerships are essential, “explains Guilherme Moretto, Manager of the Pharmaceutical Unit of MCassab.
The Brazilian Centroflora Group works with botanical extracts and is already recognized internationally. As an extension of the partnership, MCassab is also the distributor of Escopolamina of C2 Pharma, an important arm of the Centroflora Group focused on global marketing of API’s.
For Personal Care area, the partnerships will focus in innovation. “For more than 5 years we have reviewed our portfolio and are looking for partners who would be able to add specialties to our formulations. In choosing Elkem, we will include silicones in our portfolio and, with SNF, water-soluble polymers. Even for the latter, we will be your exclusive distributor in the country, “says Gláucia Abraços, Commercial Manager of the Cosmetics Business Unit.
It has been constant the movement of MCassab to incorporate new partners and further increase its solutions to all market segments. In recent months, partnerships have been announced with Miyoshi, Weylchem, Gattefossè and Covestro.
