Clariant and Global Bioenergies: A new bio-based rheology modifier for more natural cosmetic formulations

Clariant and Global Bioenergies have unveiled a new bio-based polymer for cosmetic creams and lotions, which is derived from renewable isobutene, and with an ability to influence the viscosity of cosmetic formulations to achieve better sensorial and texturizing properties for creams and lotions.

Developed with Global Bioenergies’ sugar-based isobutene, this rheology modifier contains more than 50% renewable carbon, and consequently meets the ISO 16128:2016 standard for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products.

The bio-based polymer offers cosmetics brands a direct 1:1 alternative to petroleum-based equivalents.

Renewable isobutene is a widely used building block for cosmetic applications and we are excited by the opportunities it presents for new bio-based ingredients to address the needs of niche markets. Our relationship with Clariant is strengthening, and we expect to continue building our network of partners as we prepare for larger capacities,” explained Marc Delcourt, CEO of Global Bioenergies.

The building block of this new cosmetics ingredient is currently produced on a small scale at Global Bioenergies’ demo plant located in Leuna, Germany. The companies are working on upscaling production with larger volumes.

Supporting our customers in the Personal Care industry with sustainable, bio-based ingredients is a key priority for Clariant. The demand for ingredients based on renewable resources is here to stay and will become the norm among brands in the very near future. With our new polymer, we are delighted to expand current limited opportunities for formulators looking to improve the sustainability of their formulations, letting them make an immediate switch without compromising application properties or performance,” said Ralf Zerrer, Head of Strategic Marketing and Innovation, Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties at Clariant.
