Partnership creates extracts range

June 2012

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company has partnered with Bio-Botanica to create a new line of botanical extracts called ZeaBasics. These products, manufactured by Bio-Botanica, feature the proprietary ingredient Zemea propanediol.

Zemea is a natural, 100 per cent bio-based ingredient made from corn sugar through fermentation and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market. It is a high-performance, environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s lack of skin irritation, improved moisturisation and aesthetic properties are benefits. Bio-Botanica utilises its proprietary Bio- Chelated process to manufacture the botanical extracts and combines them with Zemea for natural personal care and cosmetic applications. Formulators should consider ZeaBasics for their natural products. ZeaBasics reduce the feeling of tackiness, greasiness and increasing the perception of easy absorption and smoothness, providing an overall pleasant consumer experience.

PRODUCT PROFILE

Fermented ginseng offers new skin care efficacy
Ginseng has a long history of use by humans for its health-giving properties. In fact its Genus name, Panax, means ‘all heal’, and it has a reputation across the world for its ability to induce energy, vitality and boost the immune system. However in the centuries of its use, it has largely been taken as an oral medicine and not topically.
