New Botanical Extracts from Naturex

September 4, 2013

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Since May 2013, glycerin derived from palm has been replaced by a new source of rapeseed-derived glycerin in all botanical extracts formulated for the personal care industry.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.
