Sao Paulo, Brazil, May 11, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - At the FCE Cosmetique in Sao Paulo Brazil, May 15-17, The Lubrizol Corporation's Personal and Home Care team will introduce Active Organics, Inc. to the South Latin American market concentrating on Brazil. Active Organics, acquired by Lubrizol in December 2011, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of naturally derived specialty ingredients including natural performance ingredients and botanical extracts for the personal care industry. The addition of ActiLipid(TM) and Actisea(TM) H2O performance ingredients and Actiphyte(TM) and Actiplex(TM) botanical extracts to Lubrizol's personal and home care product offering in Brazil and the surounding region, provides a strong entry into the botanical extracts and natural performance ingredients market and enhances Lubrizol's existing technology in naturally derived ingredients.
Also at FCE Cosmetique, Lubrizol will introduce Carbopol(R) Ultrez 30 polymer to the Brazilian market. This newest rheology modifier in the family of Carbopol(R) polymers offers good electrolyte tolerance, high thickening performance in a broad pH range, and a rich, distinct sensory in challenging skin care formulations.
Key Benefits of Carbopol Ultrez 30 Polymer:
