When Huntsman, one of the leading global suppliers of specialty chemicals to the beauty and personal care industry, returns to in-cosmetics in April, it will take with it an expanded portfolio of surfactants and pigments.

Since the last in-cosmetics show Huntsman’s offering for the sector has grown significantly through acquisition and by evolving existing products to fit market needs. The team’s experts are looking forward to visiting Barcelona, meeting current customers, and networking with new prospects to discuss emerging trends across the beauty and personal care industry.

At in-cosmetics 2015, Huntsman will talk to attendees about the ways in which it tries, as a responsible company, to make its business and its products more sustainable. From waste and emission reduction schemes to product stewardship initiatives, and personal and process safety improvements, the company keeps a careful eye on progress and always sets new targets to work towards. Huntsman recently announced that its European surfactant plants have been accredited by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

Huntsman is renowned for creating chemical intermediates that are used to improve the efficacy of some of the world’s best-known beauty brands. Under its ‘We Care’ range the company manufactures and markets high performance solutions including emulsifiers, conditioning agents, foam boosters & stabilizers, mildness agents, pearlizing formulas and thickeners for personal care essentials such as nourishing skin, hair care and cosmetic products. Purity pigments are another specialist area with the business developing non-sensitizing solutions that can be easily incorporated into cosmetic products to help deliver radiant color, softness and good overall coverage.

• ‘Free-from’ performance intermediates, based on sustainable, naturally derived feedstocks, and made without the use of ethylene oxide and sulfates
