by Gemma Escarré,

Vytrus Biotech, a CataloniaBio & HealthTech member, won three awards at the 2019 In-Cosmetics fair held from 2 to 4 April in Paris.

The latest ingredient launched to market by this Terrassa-based company, Olea Vitae, was named the most innovative product of the fair (Innovation Zone Best Active Ingredient Award). The active ingredient is obtained from the stem cells of olive trees and used to combat skin ageing.

In-Cosmetics also recognised the company's work in promoting the sustainability of its active ingredient Sarcoslim Reshape, which helps reduce fat, with the Green Award.

Finally, the publication Cosmetics Design gave the company the Beauty Industry Award for use of the active ingredient Quora Nori.

Vytrus finished 2018 with revenue of €900,000. This year, the company will launch a round of funding to continue its expansion into new markets and prepare to go public on one of the alternative stock markets in Europe.
