Univar Solutions and Biosynthetic Technologies have reached a distribution agreement to extend Biosynthetic Technologies’ footprint in the beauty and personal care market across the United States.

Under the terms of the agreement, Univar Solutions will market, sell, warehouse, and support Biosynthetic Technologies full BioEstolide product line to meet the demand for biobased personal care ingredients. BioEstolide products are bio-based oils with emollient performance features, and are from a natural, non-GMO source.

"We are incredibly excited about this recent agreement with Univar Solutions, as our organizations are aligned in our goals and values. We look forward to providing customers in the United States with our BioEstolide product line, leveraging the excellent reputation of our new partner, Univar Solutions," said Jakob Bredsguard, president of Biosynthetic Technologies Food, Drugs and Personal Care Division. "We are pleased to announce our entrance into the personal care market space with our BioEstolide products. These new, bio-based esters are manufactured in a facility that runs on sustainable energy. As a biobased alternative to existing petroleum-derived raw materials, we foresee them having a significant impact on the personal care marketplace."
