Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

The objective of this project was to assist the client in determining its plans in respect of developing its anhydrous alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) business, mainly in the cosmetics sector. CPL obtained and analysed information about the market potential for anhydrous AHA as a premium (or substitute) ingredient. CPL was to advise in respect of potential applications and the size and scope of the opportunity. The main geographic focus of this study was North America, although information relating to other markets was included.

The study provides available market data for the current use of anhydrous AHA, primarily in the cosmetics industry. It also gives an estimate of market value and growth.
