Cerenol™ Polyols

For Personal Care companies that are looking for new high-performance ingredients, DuPont™ Cerenol™ is a 100% renewably sourced, less-toxic, non-skin-irritating material that can be used as a base fluid or as a property-enhancing additive. Use of Cerenol™ in cosmetic and personal care formulations allows for dramatic formula simplification due to the viscosity building and stabilizing effect — eliminating the need for many petroleum-based additives.

Zemea™ Propanediol
(DuPont Tate & Lyle BioProducts, LLC)

DuPont Tate & Lyle Zemea™ renewably sourced™ propanediol is the perfect glycol solution for formulations and solvents where non-petroleum-based ingredients are desired to replace propylene glycol and butylene glycol. Zemea™ provides greater purity and lower skin irritation and sensitization than propylene glycol, while offering many of the same advantages in formulation as traditional glycols.

Corn to Cosmetics

Renewably sourced DuPont Tate & Lyle Zemea™ propanediol can function either as an emollient, humectant, hand-feel modifier or solvent, and has all the advantages of being petroleum-free.
