SustOleo™ MCT Named a Finalist in Sustainable Beauty Awards


Philadelphia, PA USA - November 6, 2017
INOLEX is pleased to be nominated as a Finalist in the Sustainability Beauty Awards for its palm-free ingredient, SustOleo™ MCT.

The Sustainability Beauty Awards are a global recognition encompassing five categories of sustainability. SustOleo™ MCT (Triheptanoin), which was nominated in the category of Sustainable Ingredient, is a natural, palm-free medium chain triglyceride designed as a functional alternative to sensory fluids and emollients that have been historically palm derived.

Launched in 2016, SustOleo™ MCT offers a sustainable option for those in the cosmetic industry looking for alternatives to palm derived medium chain triglycerides. Natural and biodegradable, SustOleo™ MCT is reliably sourced and is ECOCERT, COSMOS, and NSF/ANSI 305 certified. SustOleo™ MCT, as part of the SustOleo™ range, provides a direct route for the beauty industry to reduce its dependency on ingredients derived from palm oil.

Winners of the Sustainability Beauty Awards will be announced at a dedicated Sustainable Beauty Awards ceremony, hosted at the Paris Marriott Champs-Elysées the evening of November 6, 2017. The awards reception will take place alongside the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit, organized by Ecovia Intelligence, which covers major sustainability developments in the cosmetics & personal care industry.
