Ethyl Hexanediol is used to dissolve other substances, usually liquids, in cosmetics and personal care products. Ethyl Hexanediol is used in the formulation of hair tonics, dressings, and other hair grooming aids, and cleansing products.


Biobased Butanol is employed as a solvent in cosmetics. It is used in nail care formulations and has been used as a clarifying agent in the manufacture of clear shampoos. Biobased Butanol also finds application in bath soaps and detergents, eye makeup, foundations, lipstick, underarm deodorants, and aftershave lotion.


ENA is used in the personal hygiene industry in products such as mouthwash due to its anti-fungal property.

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.
