From skin creams and hand soaps to dishwasher capsules and dish soaps — these are products that almost everyone uses every day. There is, however, increasing demand in this industry for safe and sustainable products. This challenges companies to develop new ecologically friendly, high-quality products, as well as to optimize existing ones.
Which raw materials do consumers perceive as sustainable? Which alternative ingredients still ensure a high-quality product? How can the shelf life of natural products be improved? These are just some of the questions we are tackling through our research.
Our interdisciplinary team pools knowledge and expertise from across a range of relevant fields to develop products that are sustainable from start to end of the process chain: from raw materials to the mechanical processes and then to the packaged product. We aim to work with you to develop bio-based and recyclable products as well as resource-conserving processes for personal and home care products.

Ingredients certified for natural and synthetic use in personal and home care products
There is a wide range of applications for ingredients certified for natural and synthetic use in the personal and home care sector. These materials also come with an equally broad array of challenges for manufacturers, suppliers and users. From manufacturing, storage and transportation to using ingredients in end products, we tailor our solutions to your needs.
Our ingredients sector services:
Skincare (rinse-off and leave-on products), hair care, oral care, color cosmetics, fragrances
Consumers primarily want personal care products to feel good and have a positive effect. At the same time, consumers are increasingly focusing on the exact composition of the product and the demand for ingredients and packaging materials that are as natural and environmentally compatible as possible is growing. Today more than ever, manufacturers of face, body and hair care products are faced with the challenge of developing sustainable cosmetic products that are effective and continue to evoke positive emotions in consumers.
Be it creams, lotions, shower gels, shampoos, conditioners, hand soaps, toothpastes or bath salts, we support you in the development of personal care products and investigate your products and issues with individually tailored methods.
Whether your product is a cream, lotion, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, toothpaste or bath salts, we can support you in developing personal care products, assessing and addressing these products and issues raised using tailored methods.
Our personal care sector services:

Sustainability and functionality also play a part in home care products. In view of resource shortages, many manufacturers focus on developing biodegradable and environmentally friendly formulas. While doing so, it is important that products continue to fulfil their function and are pleasant for consumers to use. Our interdisciplinary team of experienced scientists will investigate your products and develop uniquely tailored methods to suit your needs, whether it be liquid or powder detergents, conditioners, dishwashing or household cleaning products, textile care products or air fresheners.
