Fenchem strengthens EU cosmetics market

Fenchem strengthens EU cosmetics market

Global company brings two new ingredients to EU personal care manufacturers.

Fenchem plans to strengthen the EU cosmetics market. The EU cosmetics market is almost as large as the U.S. and Japanese markets combined, and it represents about one-third of the global cosmetics market. Europe is also the world’s largest cosmetics exporter, with 62 percent of its cosmetics products being marketed outside of Europe.

Alkyl polyglucoside (APG) is obtained from natural raw material palm and corn oils. Extremely mild and readily biodegradable, this nonionic surfactant is ideal for shampoos, body washes, liquid soaps and dish washing detergents. Certified by Ecocert, it is particularly suited for baby care products.

The other featured product is Lanolin, which is produced from wool grease, a natural, renewable raw material obtained from raw wool. Lanolin is a natural moisturizer with powerful emollient and protective properties. The product's pesticide residue is strictly controlled in a low level to meet cosmetic applications such as lip care and baby care products. Lanolin is an ideal and widely used ingredient for skin creams, soaps, lip glosses and hair dressings and shampoos.

Fenchem, a science-based company, specializes in developing and manufacturing a wide range of innovative ingredients for the cosmetics and personal care industries including specialty silicone, conditioning agent, thickener, sun screen, etc. Our two branched offices in Germany and Czech Republic will contribute to our EU cosmetics business.
