Clariant and Global Bioenergies announce the development of a new biobased polymer for cosmetic formulations



Type of post: NEWS IN BRIEF.

Clariant and Global Bioenergies announced yesterday the development of a new biobased polymer for cosmetic creams and lotions (see press release, 2/1/2018). Developed with Global Bioenergies' sugar-based isobutene, Clariant's new ingredient is a rheology modifier that influences formulation viscosity and achieves specific sensorial and texturizing properties for creams and lotions.

It contains more than 50% renewable carbon and consequently meets the ISO 16128:2016 standard (Guidelines on technical definitions and criteria for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products). The biopolymer offers formulators a direct alternative to petroleum-based equivalents.

The building block of Clariant's new cosmetics ingredient is currently produced on a small scale at Global Bioenergies' demo plant located in Leuna (Germany). The companies are working on upscaling production with larger volumes.
