INOLEX Adds to “Center of Excellence” in China


Philadelphia, PA USA - August 1, 2017

INOLEX continues to build its global presence with increased lab capabilities and personnel additions in Guangzhou, China. The location is developing as a “Center of Excellence” and indicates a key market for INOLEX’s growth particularly in Alternative Preservation solutions and natural, innovative ingredients for the beauty and personal care industry.

A full-scale microbiology laboratory has been established in Guangzhou to complement INOLEX’s existing commercial and technical center. This new lab will provide services for challenge tests and MIC tests for internal and external projects related to formulations containing alternative preservation systems.

In support of these operations, the team in Guangzhou has added several new employees.

Anna Gao recently joined in the role of Account Manager, East of China. Prior to her new position at INOLEX, Anna held several marketing and sales engineer roles in the beauty care industry, most recently with Bronson & Jacobs.

Mengru Li joined the Guangzhou lab as a Microbiologist in early July. She holds a Masters of Engineering in Aquatic Products Processing and a BS in Engineering in Food Science and Engineering. Her research in microbiology and molecular biology will be fundamental to the operations of the lab.

Jane Xiong, with a background in Chemical Engineering and Technology, will take on the role of Application Manager in late July. Formerly the Manager of R&D at Guangzhou Sheencolor Cosmetic Co., Ltd., Jane holds numerous patents in the field of cosmetics.

The mega trend that China represents is priority for us,” states David Plimpton, INOLEX CEO. “Our investment in Guangzhou helps ensure that we remain focused on the specific demands of the Chinese market as it continues to evolve as beauty care hub.
