DARMSTADT, GERMANY: Merck signed an agreement with Greenpharma SAS for its cosmetic active ingredient poppy seed extract. Merck will market the active ingredient globally under its umbrella brand RonaCare as of September 2013. In addition, Merck is responsible for sales, logistics and application technology customer support. Poppy seed extract is a skin-firming substance with a dual mechanism of action.

“We are a leading manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients and the course clearly continues to be set for growth in this area. We will continue to augment our innovative portfolio derived from in-house research and development by cooperating with external partners. Compliance with Merck quality standards is a most important precondition. Greenpharma distinguishes itself by high quality standards, intensive research work and environmentally sound product manufacturing. That makes it a perfect partner for Merck,” said Michael Weiden, Head of Functional Materials, Pigments & Cosmetics business unit, Merck.
