Genomatica and Glenn LLC, an Azelis Americas company, today announced Glenn as the exclusive distributor of Genomatica’s Brontide™ natural butylene glycol in the U.S., effective immediately. Brontide is recognized in the personal care industry as a sustainably sourced, natural ingredient compared to traditionally produced petroleum-based butylene glycol.
Glenn, a specialty ingredients distributor dedicated to the personal care industry and renowned for its technical competence and focus on sustainability and innovation, added Brontide to its portfolio to support personal care customers in creating natural and sustainable beauty products that meet the demand and expectations of today’s consumers.
Glenn brings 16 technical account managers dedicated to the personal care industry, an application lab bolstered by e-Lab and iChat digital capabilities, and the shared experiences of its Azelis colleagues throughout the world — including insights from Azelis’ marketing and distribution of Brontide in Europe.
Genomatica and Glenn are both committed to sustainability, with Genomatica’s focus on helping manufacturers make products more sustainably, and Azelis’ recent EcoVadis Gold rating for corporate social responsibility, placing it in the top one percent of distributors worldwide. Recently, Azelis joined Together for Sustainability (TfS), the global initiative for sustainable supply chains.
Brontide can be found in a variety of personal care and beauty products from major beauty manufacturers and indie brands, including moisturizers, shampoos, body washes, creams and more. A multi-functional ingredient, it can be used for moisture retention, improved texture, antimicrobial properties and as a solubilizer for plant extracts, flavor and fragrances.
