TOPIC: Insights into New Product Introduction
Every organization grows its business by introducing new products (or services) to the market. An effective approach for development and launch of new products ensures success by minimizing the chance of failure. The present talk is focused around three key facets of new product introduction:
- Structured Process
- Research & Development
Mayank will discuss details on a process of taking the product from a concept to commercialization that provides rapid R&D time and cost efficiency, Stage Gate or similar concepts that lead to impactful product development, Strategic Project Management for flawless execution, managing R&D and Scale Up to prepare for larger markets, and addressing common failure points and unforeseen roadblocks.

TOPIC: From Plant to Cosmetic Active Ingredient : A Sustainable Approach
Nature’s gifts are plentiful. Benefiting from its bounty means respecting and protecting it. This has been the guiding principle of Laboratoires Expanscience for more than forty years. Creating “responsible” plant supply chains means enabling the development of active ingredients and quality ingredients while guaranteeing the security and sustainability of the supply and respect for local people.
For this reason, implementing a “responsible plant sourcing” policy is a necessity and should include the following: • By drawing on Standard ISO 26000 and complying with Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) criteria. • By relying on a “sustainable plant sourcing” manager whom is a real intermediary with local populations and authorities. • By complying with international agreements, in particular the Nagoya Protocol, CITES convention, • Committing 100% of supply chains to a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plan of action: analysis of the impact of our plant supply chains on various levels: environmental, working relations and conditions, human rights, compliance with good practice, etc. Our rigorous approach guarantees the highest quality as well as safety and stability: listening to the market’s needs to develop the active ingredients of tomorrow. Our philosophy “SCIENCE & CONSCIENCE, naturally®” is thus the perfect image of all these commitments.
