Joining Safic-Alcan is to become part of a company which offers varied and stimulating assignments, in a caring and pleasant environment.
Meet Elodie PERENNÈS, our Application Lab Manager from the Cosmetics Department as she shares her journey so far at Safic-Alcan as well as her love for different sports.
When and why did you join Safic-Alcan? What made you consider joining us?
After several years of experience in the cosmetics industry, I joined the cosmetic department of Safic-Alcan in October 2022 as head of the French application laboratory. I have known Safic for several years, as customer. The diversity of the cosmetic supplier's portfolio, the values shared by Safic and the international environment of the company convinced me.
How do experience your relationship with other collaborators, partners, principals, or customers?
I work closely with all the services in the cosmetics department, the other subsidiaries in the group, suppliers, and customers. The interactions are extremely rewarding and the tasks very varied. We all work together to provide our customers with the right solution and the technical expertise they need. It is also overly exciting to prepare for the year's exhibitions, which stimulates the creativity of our team! I also like to stay connected with customers through exhibitions and seminars so that I am always aware of the challenges they face on day-to-day and can offer them the best solutions.
What is something curious to know about you?
I swim with the Versailles club, run, and ski during the winter season. I like to challenge myself with a few races throughout the year, the wellbeing provided is beneficial and it makes me feel happy. I also love to walk near the sea and enjoy the iodized air when I come back to visit my family in Brittany.
How do you try to incorporate Safic values of Commitment, Differentiation, Ethics, Trust & Reliability, Sustainable Development, Teamwork, Transparency in your day-to-day work.
The values supported by Safic are in line with my own. At the laboratory level, we work to develop more natural personal care formulas in collaboration with the cosmetics department and in line with customer expectations. We also try to reduce our waste as much as possible, in our daily habits. We also meet regularly with the different laboratories of our international subsidiaries to share our technical knowledge and the formulations we are working on for the various exhibitions and events. This collaboration is particularly instructive and allows us to highlight the innovative side of our profession, which remains essential in the cosmetics field, as well as our team spirit.
Do you have any illustrative fun/light stories to share from your time at Safic-Alcan?
Safic-Alcan regularly invites its employees to take part in events in support of charitable projects related to the environment, healthy habits, wellness, etc. I had the opportunity to take part in the "Children Without Cancer City" solidarity race organized by Imagine for Margo, running 10 km in aid of the association. It was a great moment to share with colleagues in a sporty and very friendly atmosphere!
