Our Story


Chimar was founded

to market innovative technologies in the field of antioxidant analysis in the cosmetics and food industry.
At that time, Chimar President, Mr. Marco Piacentini PhD and MBA, developed a strategic network with leading universities and research laboratories as such ETH in Zurich (CH), Polytechnic of Milan, other Biotech research centers in Italy and later on, with famous Bocconi Business School in Milan, one of the top 5 business school in Europe.

Chimar started offering temporary management services

to leading companies in the cosmetic and lab testing industry.
This lead to developing further competences and know-how over the entire cosmetic value chain, from packaging manufacturing to marketing & communication, from bulk quality control to global regulatory issues.

Chimar started investing in Japanese Cosmetic Market

as a leading player for import/export support from/to Japan.
Local partnership with major cosmetic groups in Tokyo and custom offices in Karatsu and the world wide consolidated partnership with Eurofins Cosmetic are granting Chimar to serve as a solid partner to Japanese companies to export to EMEA region while EU companies are supported to breach into the challenging Japanese market.


With the partnership with Eurofins Group, Chimar is able to offer the complete range of analytical and clinical testing to support the regulatory requirements.

Within JCC cooperation, Chimar obtained support by JETRO, the Japanese External Trade Organisation from the Japanese government that is supporting investment in Japan.

This solid set up turned to be particularly appreciated by Japanese companies, second to no one in terms of expected quality, and in turn the growth of the Japanese project favored Chimar investments to structure a stronger regulatory service.


Chimar counts two global top managers, one senior business development manager, two regulatory experts, a marketing office and direct contact with 150 selling agents over the Italian territory. Chimar has first class partnership with Eurofins Group, Italian IFSCC office, Japan Cosmetic Center, and Italian Cosmetic Association (Polo della Cosmesi).
