Global Bioenergies (Euronext Growth : ALGBE), a leader in industrial biotechnology and Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, today announced the development of a new bio-based polymer for cosmetic creams and lotions, which is derived from renewable isobutene.
Developed with Global Bioenergies’ sugar-based isobutene, Clariant’s new ingredient is a rheology modifier that influences formulation viscosity and achieves specific sensorial and texturizing properties for creams and lotions. It contains more than 50% renewable carbon, and consequently meets the ISO 16128:2016 standard for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products.
