German personal care ingredient supplier Symrise has received a BSB environment category award for its anti-dandruff ingredient Crinipan PMC green.
The jury honoured the cosmetic ingredient for its strong positive impact on the environment based on data.
Crinipan PMC green is environmentally friendly, water friendly and readily biodegradable. It can also go into COSMOS or NATRUE organic certified formulations.
Symrise produces the ingredient in Germany from 100% natural-derived MB RSPO raw materials. As a member of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT), Symrise has committed itself to sourcing with respect for people and biodiversity.
The entire production site fulfils the requirements on occupational health and safety management systems (OSHA), environmental management systems, and energy management systems.
“The production process also helps reduce energy consumption for formulators. They will find it easy to handle and thus spend less energy compared to standard dandruff actives,” said Symrise.
“We feel honoured to have received the prestigious BSB Award for our environmentally friendly and innovative anti-dandruff ingredient Crinipan PMC green,” added senior global product manager Dr Florian Genrich.
“It shows that developing cosmetic ingredients like Crinipan® PMC green as part of our corporate sustainability strategy meets the expectations of customers and consumers.”
Symrise says Crinipan PMC green comes with in vivo proven effectiveness and targets the cause of dandruff with an innovative mode of action.
The dandruff-causing yeast Malassezia itself is activating the ingredient´s anti-dandruff effect.
