This highly select Award, based on Frost & Sullivan’s unique TEAM Research methodology, highlights the achievements of companies who deliver excellence and best practices in their respective industries.

The selection of this Award comes through in-depth interviews and primary market analysis conducted by the industry analyst team and is based on four criteria: efficacy, technology, consumer benefits and potential market penetration.

Indeed Legance, produced by an environment-friendly technology (super critical CO2 extraction), is the first of its kind in the market to be designed to provide anti-ageing benefits especially for the legs.


Frost & Sullivan’s competitive benchmarking confirms that with proven scientific evidence, cost effectiveness and high efficacy, Legance is best poised to penetrate the leg care market, a niche developing segment of the personal care market, which currently lacks an ingredient targeting such challenges.

Sederma is proud of this unbiased, third-party recognition, proving its capacity and willingness to deliver its customers with cutting edge innovative products that best match the current expectations and needs of the market.
