Naturex offers a large range of totally palm-free botanical extracts ( 22/07/2013 )


Avignon, 22nd July 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. 

 

Naturex is committed to providing ingredients that are not associated with deforestation. 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 Since May 2013, glycerin derived from palm has been replaced by a new source of rapeseed-derived glycerin in all botanical extracts formulated for the personal care industry.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 launched during In-Cosmetics, has benefited from this switch. The collection contains 5 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. “Magic of Africa” provides inspiring resources for successful new palm-free product developments.
