Personal Care and Cosmetics


Ethyl acetate is used primarily as a solvent and diluent, being favoured because of its low cost, low toxicity, and agreeable odour. For example, it is commonly used in some nail varnish removers and also as an additive in cigarettes.


Ethyl lactate and other esters of lactic acid are generally used in cosmetics and personal care products. These ingredients are used in the formulation of moisturizers, cleansing products, and other skin care products, as well as in makeup, shampoos, hair dyes and colors and other hair care products.


Sodium sulphate is a simple inorganic compound with the formula Na2SO4. Powdered detergents for washing clothes usually contain sodium sulphate simply to bulk up the product, making detergent manufacturers the biggest users of the compound.

The personal care industry manufactures products such as cosmetics, shampoos, and soaps. The health and beauty section of the supermarket gives an idea of the range of products, many of which are purchased on the basis of colour, smell, and/or taste. We have a wide variety of products—from fragrances and flavours to adhesion promoters, film formers and emollient esters that are used in the production of personal care products. Film-formers are added to cosmetic products to produce, upon application, a continuous film on skin, hair or nails that provide water resistance and make products such as sunscreens and lipsticks long lasting. 

Our commitment to sustainability can be seen in our products for this industry. We manufacture 1, 3-Butylene glycol a key ingredient in manufacture of personal care products from bio-based renewable resources adhering to the commitment of connecting the world with nature. Our product that is used as a raw material is approved by ECOCERT GREENLIFE and conforms to the ECOCERT Natural and Organic Cosmetics standard. 

Our modified cellulose polymers are used in cosmetics and personal care products including bath products, hair products, eye and facial makeup, skin care products and shaving products.

We understand that this is a sensitive industry where it is crucial that products are effective, stable and safe.  We partner with our clients to provide them chemicals that contribute to the quality, safety, efficacy and regulatory compliance of their products.
