Global trends

The market for industrial enzymes is to expand significantly with the cosmetics industry being one of the principle drivers. Industrial demand for enzymes is being driven by new enzyme technologies, and increasing use of organic compounds.

In the cosmetics and personal care sector the increasing use of enzymes can be partially attributed to the move towards organic compounds in place of petrochemical-based ingredients, which is being highlighted by one of the sector’s fastest growth trends, natural and organic products.


Product composition alone is no longer the only important factor driving purchases. With growing environmental awareness among consumers, the desire to know that the products they buy have been produced in a sustainable manner has also increased.

ChiralVision has technology to produce cosmetic ingredients with the aid of enzymes, using renewable resources.
