The agreement has already taken effect whereby a combination of Unigen natural ingredients is being used in Clinque’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector and Derma White Clinical Brightening Essence. Both skin care products are part of the “Nu Natural” trend where companies are blending natural ingredients and effective green chemistry. No natural certifications have been announced. In the future Clinque is expected to add further natural ingredients to their product line, as well as the addition of Unigen ingredients to other Estée Lauder brands.
The agreement now provides Estée Lauder with an important and commercially successful partnership with a global leader in the discovery and development of proprietary natural ingredients for the cosmetics and personal care industries.
With a variety of scientifically substantiated natural ingredients already distributed worldwide, Unigen develops botanical and marine-derived natural ingredients of which the safety and efficacy are established through testing at the genetic, cellular, and human clinical levels.
