The cosmetics industry is continually growing, and the need for ethical sourcing and production is paramount to keep consumers happy and costs low while meeting the increasing regulations demanding environmental consciousness. The opportunities for improved environmental consciousness are omnipresent in the cosmetics industry.

Our entire feedstocks can have uses in cosmetics. The core and fiber of plants, when broken down, yields microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) that as an additive is effective as a binder and absorbent. Our natural fibers also have unique properties for exfoliation, and our hurd is a premier biofiller for compounding plastics.

Our sustainable materials have applications that include

  • Oils
  • Exfoliates
  • Micro cellulose
  • Powder/Absorbents
  • Application/Brush
  • Fillers
  • Packaging
