Production doubled for innovative surfactant

Production capacity for Iselux (Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate) is set to double at Innospec’s North Carolina plant in the US, as sales and product launches continue to grow.

The investment demonstrates Innospec’s commitment to the Iselux range of products. Iselux is exclusive to Innospec and the additional volume aims to ensure security of supply.

Iselux was launched in 2009 as a new, high-performance, sulfate-free surfactant to help customers meet consumer demands for gentle, effective cleansing across a wide range of personal care applications.

Iselux is a flagship product for Innospec and has penetrated the market to become a core technology alongside more traditional surfactant systems. This new capacity supports its growth into the next generation of personal care products.

Innospec expects that the additional production volume will come online 1 Jan 2018.

Bruce McDonald, president of Innospec’s Performance Chemicals business, said: “This significant additional capacity demonstrates Innospec’s commitment to novel ingredients for the personal care market. It underlines our strategy to focus on specialty surfactants and ensures all our customers’ needs are met, in terms of both innovation and supply.”
