Seongnam-si (Seoul), South Korea – May 7, 2018 – Pharma Research Products Company Ltd. (PRP) a Korean publicly listed firm (KOSDAQ 214450) engaged in the development of medical esthetic products announced that it has secured majority ownership of botulinum toxin type A injection (ReNtox) production facility of BioCND, a South Korean venture company.

The 6,000 square meter plant has initial capacity of 2 million vials of the ReNtox per year.

Mr. Jung, CEO of PRP commented “Acquisition of rights for the manufacture and commercialization of ReNtox injection completes PRP’s proprietary line of facial esthetic products.

With the addition of ReNtox injection in its line of facial esthetics PRP has gained a very strong position not only in Korea but also in the worldwide facialesthetic market.” The worldwide facial esthetic market is estimated to have reached USD 6.5 billion in 2016. This market is growing with a CAGR of 11.5% and expected to reach USD 17.2 billion by 2025.
