Green Chemical Solutions Are New from Cognis

July 12, 2007

The demand for green solutions in the personal and home care/I&I segment is growing rapidly, as customers are increasingly concerned with the environmental and safety impact of the products they buy— looking for labels such as green, organic, natural or ecological. Manufacturers who want to develop products in line with this global ecoethics trend can choose the appropriate ingredients from Cognis Care Chemicals portfolio by utilizing Green Chemical Solutions, an innovative classification system.

Green Chemical Solutions from the care chemicals strategic business unit of global specialty chemicals supplier Cognis is a new classification system based on product specific data. It offers clear information on the entire care chemicals product range at a glance, showing the proportion of natural, renewable raw materials in every ingredient. By categorizing its portfolio into different levels of naturalness, care chemicals makes it easy for formulators to choose suitable ingredients and to determine the degree of greenness for end-products.
