Clariant and Polygal have joined forces to expand Personal Care formulators’ access to high-performing natural and readily biodegradable solutions for sensory and rheology modification.

The new partnership focuses on developing superior natural rheology modifiers to support brands in embracing consumer calls for skin care products with a smaller carbon footprint and good biodegradability.

Fabio Caravieri, Global Marketing Segment Leader Personal Care, Clariant said, “This new partnership will be an exciting force in empowering natural cosmetic formulations. Renewable-based ingredients are key but effectiveness is crucial to their acceptance. With Polygal, we are looking forward to challenging common obstacles to formulating with naturals. Strengthening Clariant’s naturals portfolio over the coming years with plant-derived, readily biodegradable ingredients that combine excellent performance with superior sustainability.”

Simon Diezi, Technical Director, Polygal said, “Polygal AG has wide-ranging, world-leading expertise in research and utilization of vegetable hydrocolloids and natural polymers in industrial and food applications. Our comprehensive portfolio successfully supports customers in keeping up with consumer trends. We are thrilled that through our partnership with Clariant and their expertise in skin care formulation, we’ll help their teams explore and overcome barriers to the use of renewable, biodegradable raw materials in cosmetics.”

Launched today, Clariant expands its Plantasens naturals portfolio with ethical labels compatible Plantasens Biogum Tara, addressing the need for a better-performing natural rheology modifier. The new 100% Renewable Carbon Index (RCI) and readily biodegradable rheology modifier, based on food industry ingredient Tara Gum, succeeds in elevating the consistency and texture effect possibilities of natural skin care formulations.

Through its formulation, end product performance and extensive ethical label compatibility, natural rheology modifier Plantasens Biogum Tara offers a package of formulation support for brands embracing conscious consumption and transitioning to bio-based, lower carbon footprint, readily biodegradable products for consumers.
