HAMBURG, GERMANY: Biesterfeld Spezialchemie said that it will distribute the biodegradable emollients from Biosynthis to the cosmetics and cleaning sectors. The raw materials from the French manufacturer will primarily serve as a natural alternative to synthetical emollients, and will be distributed by Biesterfeld in the DACH region, in Eastern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula.

Biosynthis' portfolio comprises a series of products that are light in texture, suitable for every application in cosmetics (be it in skincare, hair care, or decorative cosmetics), and have a pleasant smell. Two highlights are Vegelight and Viscoplast.

Vegelight is a line of products launched in 2009. This is a mix of different coconut alkanes and can be used as a replacement for volatile mineral oil-based oils and polymers, as a dispersant for pigments and mineral filters, or as a solubilising agent for elastomers. The COSMOS-certified raw material has a smoothing effect in hair care and also serves as a styling product.

Viscoplast is made up of plant-based polymers that can replace petrochemical raw materials. They are obtained from the biological esterification of plant-based dimer acid and polyols. Viscoplast has a glossy effect without sticking, is waterproof, and can be used as a thickener.

"The demand for organic raw materials is high in many markets, especially in the German-speaking region. With the products of Biosynthis, we can offer our customers very interesting sustainable emollients that can be used without worries," said Bartosz Piatkowski, sales director Europe - personal care & cleaning, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie.

"As a small, flexible company, we can respond quickly to new trends such as the high demand for bio-sourced and renewable ingredients, and to changes in the global market. With Biesterfeld, we have a distribution partner whose expertise makes them an outstanding representative for us on the market," added Thierry Bernoud, CEO, Biosynthis.
