Personal Care


Today’s consumers are looking for personal care products that are both natural and eco-friendly, as well as effective. Our high quality, naturally derived ingredients are trusted throughout the world for use in skin, body, and hair care products.

True Beauty Begins with Sustainability

Consumers are increasingly scrutinizing the ingredients in their favorite skin and hair care products, and often choosing to spend their money with companies who promote sustainable, ethical, and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Combining the power of microorganisms and enzymes with raw materials, we are working to bring natural ingredients to everyday products. We’re also committed to upcycling and reducing the burden on the environment by manufacturing non-petroleum-based, vegetable-based materials.

Focus Areas

Skin Care

We offer a variety of ingredients designed to protect skin and hair with a strong focus on environmental impact reduction and sustainable processes. Ingredients include stabilized Vitamin C derivative AA2G™ for brighter skin, creamy MG-60 for cleansing, and Alpha Glucosyl Hesperidin for stimulating blood circulation.

Hair Care

Our other focus is on providing ingredients for hair care applications that can both satisfy and set trends. Among our environmentally friendly innovations are Lissenare™, for a firm-yet-flexible hold, and Trehalose 100, which protects hair from heat styling.
