Romanian cosmetics manufacturer Farmec Cluj-Napoca saw sales reach roughly RON 37 million (approximately EUR 8.5 million) in the first four months of 2012, up 8 percent y-o-y.

In the first four months of this year Farmec was market leader on the face-care products segment with a 24.1 percent market share in volume and came in second in terms of value with a 16.4 percent market share, according to data from AG Nielsen. It owns brands like Gerovital and Asla Vital.
