About us

CLR develops innovative and high-quality cosmetic active ingredients for skin and hair care. Founded in 1926, CLR began to focus on the manufacture of biologically active cosmetic ingredients in the early 1950s. Times have changed since then but our values have not.

Being privately owned and independent, we are flexible and always close to our customers. We offer our expertise and products to cosmetics companies all over the world which value quality, reliability, safety and expert support.

Our key promise: Active ingredients for sustainable market success.

A successful cosmetic product starts with the selection of the right actives. Only those active ingredients which really work and help in gaining consecutive sales of a cosmetic product in the marketplace will be used, regardless of the “latest trends”. These active ingredients  are essential in obtaining consumer satisfaction. CLR puts a large focus on developing actives ingredients fitting this profile.

Our key values: Effectiveness and relevance
