Dow Corning, Elevance Form JV To Develop Naturals

October 7, 2008

Looking to tap into the rapidly growing natural and organic personal care market, Dow Corning Corporation and Elevance Renewable Sciences, Inc. have signed joint development and marketing agreements to create and market naturally derived ingredients.

The partnership combines Elevance’s patented, Nobel Prize-winning metathesis technology—which has the ability to use multiple renewable feedstocks to create high-performing, environmentally friendly solutions—and Dow Corning’s silicon-based technology.

According to Stephen Gosney, global beauty care industry director for Dow Corning, the combination of Dow Corning’s silicon technology with Elevance’s natural-based products will provide the market with functional and performance benefits for a wide variety of applications.

The agreements formalize a partnership that launched novel products into the personal care market earlier this year, including soy wax and soy wax blend for skin care, color cosmetics and hair care products.More info: www.dowcorning.com
