Essilor Group is world’s number one in spectacle lens industry. The Company is a leader in development and manufacture of high quality lenses, including optical and eye examination equipment. An annual budget of 150 million Euros has been dedicated to research and development, with a team of more than 550 researchers worldwide. The Company has been launching innovative eyeglass lenses, both single lenses and progressive lenses, crafted with patented technologies.
Researches find that excessive UV rays can cause eye problems such as pterygium, cataract, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), for which the cure has not been found. Forty percent of the UV rays in prolonged sun exposure can cause cataract. Apart from the sunlight, UV rays can also be found in artificial sources such as fluorescent bulbs, mobile phone screens, computers, etc. Those who wear normal lenses may not get sufficient protection. UV rays not only come from the front but also reflect from the back of the lenses. Wearing lenses with double-sided UV protection is critical because it is impossible to be aware of UV reflection. This is the same as how miosis and astigmatism cannot be protected . Essilor has developed CRIZAL FORTE UV ® which guarantees 25 times eye-sun protection (E-SPF25).
CRIZAL FORTE UV ® combines an exclusive backside UV protection with transparency. Essilor’s new Broad Spectrum Technology applied to the backside of the lens eliminates UV reflection into the eyes. Lenses also prevent UV rays from the front. This innovation allows for UV protection without the need for sunglasses. Wearers also confirmed best transparency from the lens performance in glare reduction, smudge resistance, scratch resistance, dust repellence, and water repellence.
For those working at close range or on computers, Crizal Anti-Fatique supports wearer’s accommodation efforts and provides relief to visual fatigue. It also helps prevent computer vision syndrome (CVS) which causes dry eyes and irritation.
Each individual’s needs for corrective lenses are unique depending on visual conditions, age, environment, as well as daily activities and lifestyle. Essilor’s Eyecode is another innovative step to help determine corrective lenses which best suit each individual. This includes 3-D visual examination which yields 5 times more accuracy. Moreover, the Company also focuses on special needs such as Azio for Asians.
Thissadee TULYAANUKIJ, Essilor Distribution (Thailand) Ltd.’s General Manager said, during the recent press conference on the launch of Crizal FORTE UV, that “Lens and spectacle frames industry in Thailand has an approximate market value of 5,000 million Baht. Essilor’s market share in lenses is at 25%. The Company’s factory is at Ladkrabang Industrial Estate, which is their biggest production base in the world. It manufactures products for distribution in Thailand and overseas. The Company also has prescriptive laboratories as well as leading optical store alliances around the country. This year, the Company’s market share is expected to grow by 10% with focus on middle and high end customers.”
“Apart from marketing activities and PR, we focus on providing consumers with knowledge and useful information. We are also dedicated to CSR with the mission to help people to see the world better. Last year, we provided visual examination to Special Olympic athletes and the Rajvithi Home for Girls. We are also planning CSR for this year,
of which we will inform you later."
“In addition, we wish for consumers to give more care to choosing spectacle lenses because of their direct impacts on visual quality and health. Most consumers pay more attention to spectacle frames while choosing quality spectacle lenses help correct visual problems as well as prevent visual loss. It should also be noted that lenses available on the market are of different grades. Some do not pass quality standards and control while some are tainted with harzardous chemicals”, added Khun Thissadee.

This year, twenty French companies will be taking part in the next IN-COSMETICS session to be held in Bangkok next November 6 th . UBIFRANCE – the French Agency for International Business Development – will bring together in its national pavilion a much expanded delegation of manufacturers making ingredients for the cosmetics industry. IN-COSMETICS Asia, which attracted over 4,000 professional visitors from 53 countries in 2011, is the key event for Asian cosmetics industrialists.
The Asian market is still managing to focus the attention of sector professionals. And for good reason! The weight of new markets has doubled in the past 10 years. It now claims 38.2% of the global market. While the cosmetics industry is booming in Thailand, it still imports 90% of its ingredients.
France’s offer includes a host of advantages in meeting this demand. The country’s collaboration with medical research institutes gives it the means to rely wholeheartedly on innovation. In addition, it began very early on to develop organic products and the trend towards green and natural products, the whole approach being highly concerned with quality since most of the products are certified ECOCERT or QUALIT É FRANCE.
The spotlight is on marine resources: AGRIMER, BIOTECH MARINE, LESSONIA and SETALG, based in Brittany, have developed their know-how by exploiting the wealth found in oceans. Nature is also the main supplier to BIO NAT CONSULT for its ingredients and end products, as well as for the organic products from LABORATOIRE SONIAM .
BIOLANDES is a leader in the field of essential oils, currently offering over 300 floral extracts, resins or moss for perfumes and cosmetics, while TECHNICO FLOR is specialised in the creation and manufacture of fragrances for those same industries.
While some exhibitors like ID BIO, SACI - CFPA and THE INNOVATION COMPANY have a substantial raw materials offer, others provide more advanced domains of expertise: high quality Vaseline from AIGLON , or plaster and gypsum from SAINT GOBAIN FORMULA . Specialists in fatty substances chemistry, LABORATOIRES PROD’HYG possess an “innovation and formulation” facility to assist their dermo-cosmetics partners in creating new concepts. Through their new MinaCare line, MINASOLVE produces preservatives: hexomidine, polyphenols or diols, as an alternative to paraben or phenoxyethanol.
Several R&D laboratories like ABC TEXTURE and TECHNATURE provide bespoke services for the development of cosmetics brands.
BIOALTERNATIVES, which also works with the pharmaceutical and food industry, is devoted to the in-vitro assessment of active principles. HTL Sas is specialised in the bespoke production of sodium hyaluronate through biosynthesis from natural bacteria. Last but not least, LABORATOIRES ANIOS specializes in designing and manufacturing antimicrobial products that are human and environmentally friendly.
