The Green movement has been correctly described as a mega-trend. Green is everywhere - cleaning products, food, travel, clothing, building materials, and, of course, personal care products.
At first, the natural theme was restricted to the origin of the raw materials. For instance, botanical extracts, being derived from plants, were inherently green. Now the green moniker spreads to many more aspects of a product - how it is sourced, how it is produced, and ultimately, how it is degraded by our environment. Croda is able to supply ingredients that fit many aspects of the green trend. We have emulsifiers that work for cold process formulations. Botanical extracts with Ecocert qualification. Natural oils and butters that are harvested according to FSC standards. Lanolin products and other natural oils that are super refined to remove potential irritating by-products. Ingredients with alternative preservative systems. Ingredients that are not petrochemically derived.
This list is not exhaustive, and it continues to grow as we investigate other innovative green technologies.
