As consumers continue to seek personal care products with naturally derived ingredients, more technology and ingredient brands partner to help personal care manufacturers meet consumer demands. One such partnership exists between Bio-Botanica® Inc and Genomatica to deliver a new line of botanical extracts using natural, sustainable butylene glycol, rather than petroleum-based butylene glycol.
The extracts will feature Genomatica’s proprietary ingredient, Brontide™, a butylene glycol derived from a sustainable, renewable sugar fermentation process, and made with Bio-Botanica’s proprietary Bio-Chelation® process to ensure the extracts contain as much naturally occurring materials as found in nature. Brontide can be used as a humectant, preservative booster, solubilizer or stabilizer.
According to a press release from Bio-Botanica, Damien Perriman, Genomatica’s senior vice president, said Genomatica’s Brontide makes it easier for personal care manufacturers to develop products to address healthier lifestyle trends. Mark Sysler, Bio-Biotanica’s senior vice president, added the partnership will enable personal care manufacturers to develop products with “superior quality.”
The new extracts will be showcased at NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, May 15-16 at New York’s Javits Convention Center.
