After conducting various missions in Asia, including some for Cosmogen, Fréderic Porquet, 45, takes the lead of Cosmogen’s Engineering Offices that are located in Paris and Shenzhen.
The arrival of this expert in Engineering, design and industrialization of luxury cosmetics packaging is a strong and reassuring signal from Cosmogen, that helps us be the leader of innovation and development.
His mission is to bring innovations and solutions to market needs in support of key business functions - General Management, Sales and Marketing -, and to define and lead the R&D projects and make sure patents - a key differentiation point - are protected. Meanwhile, he will restructure and deploy a quality strategy that enhances procedures and checks of suppliers, with the aim to deliver technical safe and secure solutions to customers.
"In 2015, 5 employees joined Cosmogen’s Engineering offices in France and China. We needed a leader to guide Cosmogen’s innovation strategy, that could define the R&D areas and pilot teams. We look forward to the arrival of Frédéric. He masters all processes from product usage and thinking, to production, and knows well our customers, their problems and their requirements." Says Renaud van den BERG, CEO of Cosmogen.
Frédéric Porquet owns an Engineering Designer degree fromL’institut Supérieur de Design of Valenciennes. He has 10-year experience as Technical Director of Qualipac China in Shanghai. He was previously Manager of Priminter Engineering Office in France and has been working in innovation at R&D Industries for 6 years.
COSMOGEN has developed the contouring brush of Backstage, DIOR’s new professional brushes. It has been inspired by our Tear Drop brushes with its inherited drop shape ferrule and tuft. The brush has been customized with a matte-black-lacquered wood handle, a shiny-silver-colored ferrule, made of nickel-brass and an ivory colored synthetic tuft.
Cosmogen, a pioneer in the design of cosmetic brushes, has designed a specific brush for cleansing and purifying care whose uniqueness lies in its natural fibre that is treated with activated charcoal long known for its antibacterial properties. Its strength is the combination of antibacterial power with its power of penetration into the pores to deep clean them, even in hard to reach places.
Cosmogen has designed the Squeeze'N Big spatula especially for applying apply formula over large areas of skin. Its applicator combines width with TPE properties that are close to rubber but with more rigidity. It retains flexibility whilst offering a soft and velvety feeling. The Squeeze'N Big spatula is the perfect tool for mixing and applying thick facial and body care formulas such as masks, specific treatments, foundations or day creams.
The new patented self-heating tube from Cosmogen has been designed to enhance the efficiency and comfort of cosmetic formulas when applying. The concept is simple - a tube within a tube. The inner tube is filled with a safe sodium acetate solution and then hermetically sealed. The outer tube is filled with the formula. Just break the seal to start the warming. Cosmogen's self-heating tube is perfect for facial formulas like masks, body oil and anti-wrinkle eye treatments as it adds an extra soothing experience to formulae.
Kenzo has entrusted the development of its new roll on 'Lotus Caress' to moisturize eyes to Cosmogen. The applicator has been inspired by the mini Squeeze'n Ball. It has been specifically designed for the delicate area around the eye. The ceramic ball provides an instant cooling effect, relaxes, massages and decongests the eye contour. Like for the whole Squeeze'n range, its patented open/close rotary head prevents contamination and preserves formula.
Cosmogen has revised its Blur family, its patented set of 5 customizable brushes. The range set the trend with its iridescent ferule, in addition to offering unique technical strengths. The bevelled shape offers a large and supple tuft, which allows for a new technique of application by tapping powders and foundation.
Cosmogen accepted the challenge posed by Nocibé to create its new gamut of technical brushes: an aesthetic, up-scale, differentiating yet accessible range. Nocibé tested to see the make-up effects that could be achieved based on the high level of quality expected by the brand. The brushes feature a pink wick, an idea by Cosmogen to make the brushes distinctive and unique to Nocibé.
Sephora has entrusted the development of its Squeaky Clean Pore Cleansing Brush to Cosmogen, a French company well known for its expertise in the design of make-up brushes. The brush deeply cleanses while respecting the skin. Its dense round hair tuft is made of very thin and soft synthetic fibres yet it can penetrate deep into pores to remove dirt in hard to reach places.
