Biesterfeld is expanding its long-term partnership with US manufacturer Carrubba Inc. for aromatic and botanical extracts, essential oils blends and waters, natural and synthetic fragrances and flavours, as well as odour absorbers. This extensive product portfolio is already being distributed throughout Europe. With immediate effect, the agreement will also cover distribution rights for Brazil. 

The product portfolio comprises both oil- and water-soluble aromatic extracts used for perfume-free formulations. Custom-made extracts are available upon request. Biesterfeld is also marketing Carrubba’s portfolio of odour absorbers, known under the trade name DeoPlex®. Odor absorbers neutralise malodorous smells of raw materials or minimise undesirable ones. They are used in a wide range of cosmetic applications such as deodorants or foot creams as well as detergent and pet care applications. DeoPlex® can also be used for natural cosmetic formulations as it is also available as a USDA organic certified version. 

Emilio Colombo, General Manager at Biesterfeld Simko Distribuição S.A, says: “The Carrubba portfolio is not only innovative, but also gives our customers a competitive advantage because custom-made options make formulations unique and offer a great alternative to perfume! We are looking forward to our partnership with Carrubba in Brazil and strongly believe that our customers will be interested in this portfolio.” 

"Biesterfeld has been successfully distributing our portfolio in the European region and has proven itself to be a valuable partner,” Joe Carrubba, Director of International Business & SE Sales Manager, Carrubba Inc. “We are more than happy to extend our partnership with Biesterfeld and have complete confidence in its application-specific know-how and the company's excellent distribution structures across the Brazilian market."
