Sylvain holds a MSc in Formulated Product Engineering from Université de Technologie de Compiègne in France where he specialized in Cosmetics Formulation.
Since he graduated, he has obtained a vast experience from different positions in the cosmetic industry working for global cosmetic companies such as Unilever, SC Johnson Skincare/Deb, and Oriflame and for cosmetic raw materials supplier Akzonobel Specialty Chemicals/ Nouryon.
Sylvain has a broad international experience having worked in the UK in product development of innovative Personal Care formulas and is since 5 years based in Sweden. Moving to Sweden gave him the opportunity to explore another side of the cosmetic industry by working for an ingredients manufacturer at Akzonobel, then Nouryon. During these years he supported the development of new raw materials for the cosmetic industry, especially in biopolymers for skin and suncare and he was the technical focal point for some global brands, assisting them in formulating with biopolymers to replace synthetic polymers.
“Passionate about creating innovative cosmetic products that bring a smile on peoples’ faces, Skinome is an exciting project to be part of. It will challenge the way on how to formulate and use cosmetic products for a healthy skin. Skinome project and I share the same ambition and values to create the next generation of skincare products!”
