Brenntag to Distribute Innovative ESTERLAC Emulsifier and Surfactant Range for Cosmetic Industry in Europe









Essen, Germany - April 1, 2019
Brenntag (WKN A1DAHH), the global market leader in chemical distribution, is distributing Corbion's newly launched range of ESTERLAC* emulsifiers and surfactants to cosmetics customers in key European markets.

The ESTERLAC portfolio of products are produced from natural Lactic Acid and Fatty Acids and are readily biodegradable. These extremely mild and effective emulsifiers and surfactants bring enhanced stability and offer excellent skin and hair feel in cosmetic product formulations.

Michael Wilkop, Brenntag Director Marketing Cosmetics & Pharma EMEA, comments: “Brenntag holds a strong foothold in the cosmetics industry in EMEA and this extension of our product line provides an excellent opportunity for formulators to create unique cosmetics that consumers will love.”

Lisa Swain, Global Market Director Home & Personal Care at Corbion, adds, “Our versatile ESTERLAC portfolio enables formulators to create high-performing natural chassis for CPG companies intent on delivering what conscious consumers want.”

To begin, Brenntag will introduce formulation concepts with ESTERLAC emulsifiers as part of their creative “SenSense” concept at this year’s In-Cosmetics Global in Paris, taking place April 2-4.
