ACEF Cosmetics: the beauty of quality

It is 1989 when ACEF sees huge potential in the cosmetic market and broadens its business horizons to include in this area so that, thirty years later, the market scenario confirms this choice.

In the last 30 years, the company has specialized in the cosmetic area, gaining a consolidated experience that today allows it to provide references with a list of over 2,000 items.

In the Cosmetics Division operate 3 specialists who provide 360° support with over 30 years of experience in the field. In addition, collaboration with important Italian Universities led to the development of new technologies dedicated to cosmetic activities.

The “birth” of the Cosmetics division was just the beginning of the new path undertaken by ACEF, which investing heavily in this field created in 1992 Arda Natura, a reality that deals with the research and production of extracts from vegetable raw materials and original active compositions.

The turnover of the Cosmetics Division has been steadily increasing in recent years and currently represents 55% of the total ACEF revenue.

Furthermore, ACEF has entered into agreements with major companies in the sector.
