New Botanical Extracts from Naturex

August 8, 2013

Magic of Africa collection available in both powder and liquid form.

Deforestation fueled by the demand for palm oil has raised concerns in consumers’ minds. Naturex offers manufacturers a sustainable option when it comes to formulating personal care products without palm oil. According to the company, in switching from palm-oil derivatives to other sources, Naturex has sought out a balanced solution built on two of its core strengths: technical skills and supply chain expertise.

“Our entire range of liquid glycerin based botanical extracts is now 100% palm-free,” said Stéphanie Puel, business unit director for personal care.


Since May 2013, glycerin derived from palm has been replaced by a new source of rapeseed-derived glycerin in all botanical extracts formulated for the personal care industry. This rapeseed-derived glycerin is a by-product of green chemistry bio-fuels in Europe.

 “Magic of Africa,” the latest collection of botanical extracts, has benefited from this switch. The collection contains five plant extracts available in powder or liquid form: kigelia, hibiscus, green rooibos, kola nut and green coffee. The liquid form is formulated with rapeseed-derived glycerin. Each of the collection’s natural ingredients is available as a standardized extract and can be tailored to meet all specific formulation requirements.
