Vancouver, British Columbia – April 30, 2018 – Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX-V: SBM) (FSE: ZSB) (the “Company”) announced today that they will be exhibitors at China Beauty Expo (CBE) 2018. The trade show will be held May 22-24 in Shanghai, a growing hub in the cosmetic space.
The China Beauty Expo is the lead international beauty trade fair, providing a platform for key professionals in the cosmetic industry to meet and collaborate to enter the Asian market. Asia is currently the biggest market for beauty personal care ingredients and China specifically is the second biggest cosmetic market, with continued double-digit growth. The company looks forward to meeting with professionals from over 30 countries and discussing partnering opportunities.
As a member of the Cosmetic Valley, the company will also benefit from press and advertisement campaigns before, during and after the show. All exhibitors from the Cosmetic Valley will be part of the media promotional campaign for China Beauty Expo, along with featured pages in all show material including the May edition of Cosmetic News, which is sent out to 100,000 industry professionals in China. Sirona Biochem would like to extend their gratitude to the Normandy District and the Normandy Development Agency for sponsoring the trip.
While Sirona continues in its negotiations with a lead global partner alongside advanced due diligence from other partners, Sirona Biochem aims to expand its corporate presence in the Asian market. The company believes that its platform technology and pipeline will be of great interest to the CBE attendees, especially within the expanding Asian market.
“Ultimately, management’s responsibility is to bring as many players to the table to create a competitive environment on a licensing deal for 1067 and will continue such efforts until a definitive agreement is concluded,” said CEO, Dr. Howard Verrico.
With the extensive family of skin-lighteners within Sirona’s portfolio and novel LIP-01 anti-wrinkle compound, Sirona Biochem is well-positioned to meet the needs of the Asian consumers.
