BASF to boost emollients production at Düsseldorf plant

BASF is to invest in capacity expansion for cosmetic ingredients at its Düsseldorf, Germany site with a new plant to produce emollients for skin care and sun protection products.

A new reactor and upgrade of the distillation units will enable an expansion of production capacity to meet the increasing demand for these speciality products.

The facilities - a mid double-digit million Euro investment - are scheduled to go into operation in the third quarter of 2025.

Emollients bind and maintain skin moisture and improve the sensory properties of a personal care product.

BASF says the need for special emollients for formulations that for instance enable silicone-free skin care and octocrylene-free sun protection continues to increase in Europe.

“BASF sees the growth potential in specialties for the personal care industry in Europe and, as the market leader, we are consistently investing to support this growth with our customers,” added BASF Care Chemicals president Mary Kurian (pictured, far right).

Düsseldorf is home to BASF's third-largest site in Europe and is also the world's largest and the key BASF site for the production and development of cosmetic ingredients.
