Jungbunzlauer presents ECOCERT and COSMOS approved ingredients at in-cosmetics 2013

Recognizing the major consumer trend towards natural, safe, and environmentally-friendly goods, Jungbunzlauer is presenting ECOCERT and COSMOS approved ingredients for the personal care sector. After a successful first participation in 2012 we will again be present at the renowned in-cosmetics in Paris, 16-18 April 2013.

With our vision “From nature to ingredients®”, Jungbunzlauer commits itself to the safety of mankind and the earth. Among the leading suppliers of naturally produced biodegradable ingredients, Jungbunzlauer stands for years of expertise that guarantees innovative solutions and a versatile portfolio well suited for personal care applications.

Citric acid and sodium citrate are a winning combination for pH adjustment that provides a buffering effect. Our citrate ester CITROFOL® AI has excellent softening properties and a unique performance in skin friendly deodorant systems. The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effect of zinc citrate makes it an omnipresent ingredient in oral care products. Xanthan gum features outstanding properties for the stabilization of suspensions, emulsions and foams. Moreover, Jungbunzlauer provides different solutions for smooth moisturizing in leave-on as well as rinse-off products, including ERYLITE® (erythritol), glucono-delta-lactone, sodium gluconate, sodium L(+)-lactate, potassium L(+)-lactate and calcium lactate gluconate.

Growing consumer awareness as well as manufacturers willing to fulfill their responsibility are driving the industry towards accurate and credible labeling. ECOCERT Greenlife is an independent organization with a well-recognized standard for natural and organic cosmetics. COSMOS (COSMetic Organic Standard) has been developed by several organizations including ECOCERT to define requirements and definitions for natural and / or organic personal care products. Jungbunzlauer offers both ECOCERT and COSMOS approved ingredients, which is an important benefit and an assurance for all producers seeking solutions to formulate 100% natural cosmetics.

We are pleased to invite you to our stand N141 at the in-cosmetics in Paris, 16-18 April 2013. Come and find out about our natural approved ingredients!
