Fifteen biopolymers added to list of Halal-certified ingredients

Croda International recently achieved Halal-certification from Instituto Halal de Junta Islámica (Halal Institute of Spain) for 15 biopolymer ingredients manufactured at their Ditton site in the United Kingdom.

With more than 20 years of experience producing Halal-compliant ingredients for the personal care and other industries, the latest Halal certification brings the total number of Halal-certified raw materials available from Croda’s manufacturing sites around the world to 743.

The Instituto Halal de Junta Islámica certification provides official recognition that the 15 ingredients are manufactured in compliance with Islamic law, which is also recognised by The Indonesian Council of Ulama (Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI)). Indonesia passed legislation in October 2014 requiring all consumer products that are Halal-compliant to be Halal-certified and labelled by 2019.

Croda’s Halal-certified ingredients are sold into the beauty, personal care, home care, food and pharmaceutical industries. Their Halal-compliant range consists of surfactants, emollients, fatty acids and alcohols, humectants, inorganic UV filters, lanolin and derivatives, rheology modifiers, gelling agents, specialty blends and bases, specialty cationic compounds, active ingredients as well as botanical extracts.

The 15 newly certified biopolymers reinforce Croda’s efforts in helping beauty and personal care brands gain access and deliver their proven benefits to high potential Halal markets globally, as well as influencing other countries where Halal-safe personal care continues to be evolving as a facet of the ethical lifestyle movement.

The Halal-certified ingredients, focused on both hair care and skin care, are relied on by well-known brand names.

In hair care, the Halal-certified ingredients can enable brands to claim benefits from strengthening, repairing and thickening to moisture regulation, frizz control, extreme heat protection and style retention.

Where skin care is concerned, the ingredients can provide diverse benefits in instant smoothing, tightening, moisture regulation, or can be used as film-formers for boosting the efficacy of UV filters.

Formulators can now request and get access to the updated Formulating for Halal: Certified Ingredient Guide, which comprehensively lists the Croda raw materials and the different types of Halal certifications to develop formulations that meet Halal compliance.
