According to Global Bioenergies, a first batch of
sustainable cosmetic ingredients was delivered to
L’Oréal and was produced as part of the ISOPROD
project, supported by the French State’s Investments
for the Future Program. The ingredient is produced
based on plants as an alternative to the fossil
resources used in today’s industry. Global Bioenergies
used technologies to condense isobutene molecules
to create one of six main cosmetic ingredient
components used in numerous formulations for its
texturing properties. L’Oréal plans to use the new
ingredient in its cosmetic formulations and check to
see that the results meet its specifications.
Marc Delcourt, CEO of Global Bioenergies, said,
“L’Oréal is the leading cosmetics firm to promote
leaving fossil resources out of its formulas. The
transition to sustainable chemicals and materials is
accelerating as a growing number of major companies
similarly drive the change towards a greener future.”
