New bio-based surfactants

Croda International Plc announced the official launch and certification of its ECO range of bio-based surfactants, ingredients designed to meet increasing market demand for sustainable, high-performance ingredient options.

The new 100 per cent biobased and 100 per cent renewable range of non-ionic surfactants is the widest commercially available and is certified to meet the criteria of the USDA BioPreferred programme (www.biopreferred.gov).  The new ECO range is the result of a significant investment made by Croda in its Atlas Point manufacturing site in New Castle, Delaware, to construct an ethylene oxide plant using naturally derived feedstocks. The first of its type in the United States, the completed plant supports the evolution of Croda’s product line, reinventing many of its active emulsifying agents to meet the increasing demand for more sustainable products without sacrificing performance. 

Sold under an ECO brand prefix across Croda’s market sectors, these ingredients will lead to the creation of both new and re-imagined products, including: cosmetics and hair care products for the personal care industry; lubricants and coatings in the automotive industry; air- and surface-care products in the cleaning industry; as well as drilling fluids in the oil industry. The range offers a wide variety of benefits including emulsification and detergency.
