Delarange Cosmetics runner up at in-cosmetics Formulation Challenge

Op 19 april 2018 heeft Delarange Cosmetics (op uitnodiging van de organisatie van In Cosmetics GLOBAL) in Amsterdam met ons R&D-team meegedaan aan de zogeheten FORMULATION CHALLENGE. Het lijkt enigszins op heel Holland bakt, maar dan zonder recept!

De professionele teams van Johnson&Johnson (Frankrijk), Sabon/Yves Rocher (Israël/Frankrijk), Flores (Kampen, Nederland), Herrco Cosmetics (Engeland), Naturalps (Zwitserland) en Delarange Cosmetics kregen een ‘mistery box’ met ingrediënten met de opdracht een unieke formule in slechts 90 minuten te creëren.

In dit sterke concurrentieveld is het ons gelukt (zelfs met twee verschillende producten) de prijs van Runner up te bemachtigen (2e plaats!). Hier zijn wij heel trots op!

Cosmetics company reaches 20-year mark

Delarange Cosmetics chosen as Top Company

Delarange Cosmetics has been chosen as Top Company in the province of Flevoland. Friday evening, delegate Jan-Nico Appelman of Economic affairs presented the entrepreneurship award to founder Wim van Rij. “A truly lovely reward for our staff. And to receive this award in the twentieth year of our existence at the time that we have just moved to our new location, makes it very special”, Van Rij responded.

The award for Delarange Cosmetics was presented during a festive gala organised by the Flevopenningen foundation. These entrepreneurship awards have been presented to excellent entrepreneurs in the province since 2005. Delarange Cosmetics was nominated for the award based on the developments that it has accomplished. The jury praised Delarange Cosmetics as ‘a financially healthy company that has managed to grow year after year in a specialist market. It has a clear vision, mission and strategy, aimed at innovation and sustainability in every aspect of the operational process’, according to the jury’s report. ‘Delarange Cosmetics is involved in society and pays much attention to the well being of its staff. In addition, the company has a high knowledge level and is internationally oriented’.

Delegate Appelman, as chairman of the main jury, presented the award, which is part of the honour Toponderneming of the province of Flevoland. “You do not realise the enormously complex world behind the cosmetics that you see in the shops”, Appelman stated, after he had paid a visit to the new business location of Delarange Cosmetics in Zeewolde, as part of the jury assessment. “Once you have paid a visit to this company, all you can say is: chapeau to this company!”

Wim van Rij views the lovely words in the jury’s report as an acknowledgement of the vision of his company. “The demand in the market for body care for high-quality products continues to exist in these times as well”, says the founder of Delarange Cosmetics. “During the past twenty years, we have intentionally opted to develop and produce so-called private label cosmetics in addition to the branded articles. It is fantastic that our work now meets with so much appreciation, but we are aware that we must continue to be innovating as a cosmetics firm if we want to stay strong in the market”, according to Van Rij.
