Our plant stem cell ingredients: IRB by Sederma

As a leader in cosmetic active ingredient manufacturing, one of our main concerns is sustainability. As such, Sederma has chosen to develop Plant Cell Culture to produce molecules of interest in quantities without causing any damage to the environment.

Sederma is now also offering an array of plant stem cell ingredients with guaranteed efficacy, reproducibility and absolute sustainability.

In July 2012 Croda acquired the Istituto di Ricerche Biotecnologiche (IRB), a forerunner in the development of plant cell culture actives for Personal Care applications. IRB products are now integrated to Sederma portfolio under the name IRB by Sederma. The IRB by Sederma product range comprises approx fifteen active ingredients with substantiated efficacy and guaranteed reproducibility, answering many customer's needs including; anti-ageing, environmental protection, radiance, seboregulation, and eye care.
