Amyris adds talent to keep up with skin care demand


In California, Amyris has appointed two executives to its Clean Beauty team to keep pace with rapidly growing sales for its Biossance skincare line in North America.

Caroline Hadfield has been promoted to President of Biossance. Hadfield led Biossance’s launch and subsequent success with consumers looking for clean, non-toxic skincare that delivers superior performance.  Formerly Senior Vice President of Personal Care at Amyris, Hadfield will continue to lead brand positioning, new product and category innovation and development, supply chain management and operations.

Meanwhile, Catherine Gore will join as Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing & Education for Biossance. Formerly a Global Vice President and General Manager of Kendo, including Marc Jacobs Beauty, and the Vice President of Merchandising for Sephora Collection, Ms. Gore will be responsible for revenue growth and sales channel execution both domestically and internationally.

“With these two appointments, Biossance is well positioned to accelerate its growth in Clean Beauty categories, as well as expand its reach, both internationally and online,” Amyris President and CEO John Melo said. “This year, Biossance retail sales have climbed 300%. We have successfully set the standard for Clean Beauty in the skincare market and we are growing rapidly in response to consumer demand.”
