August 6, 2014

Makes natural esters acquisition from FloraTech.

The HallStar Company reports news of a “strategic expansion” of its natural functional ingredients  portfolio with the recent acquisition of the Florasolvs natural esters product line of specialty ingredients from FloraTech, a globally renowned provider of botanically-derived ingredients.
 
 “Today’s savvy consumers demand the best of both worlds—an assurance of trusted, natural ingredients with functional properties for personal care products,” said John Paro, president  and CEO, The HallStar Company. “Investing in ingredients such as Florasolvs natural esters is a win-win for our valued customers, who want to develop only the most unique products to distinguish their hair and skin care formulations from others in competitive consumer markets.”
 
The HallStar Company’s most recent acquisition includes the FloraTech trade names and proprietary manufacturing technology for the Florasolvs-series brand natural esters, including the PEG-150 Hydrogenated Jojoba, PEG-120 Jojoba, PEG-80 Jojoba, PEG-16 Macadamia and PEG-10 Sunflower product lines.
