Cithrol 10GTIS, a highly effective and mild surfactant used to create luxurious advanced facial cleansers. Inspired by the East, it allows the use of skin care oils to gently and efficiently cleanse and soften the skin, while being easily rinsed off with water. Cithrol 10GTIS allows the formulation of crystal clear facial cleansers made up of oil and water in a microemulsion, maintaining the perfect hydro-lipophilic balance required for this type of high performance system.

Sustainable Palm, addressing the social and environmental issues associated with Palm Oil (PO) and Palm Kernel Oil (PKO) has been a priority for Croda for over 8 years. The complexities of the PO/PKO derivatives market has been particularly challenging, but we are committed to supporting the physical supply chain by moving to RSPO’s Mass Balance model. This important progressive step allows our customers to purchase material that contributes to the production of sustainable palm oil material, which in time should create momentum towards segregated sustainable PO and PKO derivatives.

New launches and focus products from Sederma feature the just released MediatoneTM, a highly purified skin tone mediator (presented for the first time ever), ApiscalpTM providing purity and comfort for a happy scalp and MajestemTM which lifts the skin for majestic beauty.
