Gattefossé Signs Agreement for bio-Propanediol Distribution in Canada

SpecialChem - August 18th, 2017
Gattefossé Canada Inc. has announced agreement with Connect Chemicals GmbH to be the exclusive distributor for Glory Biomaterial’s natural, COSMOS/ ECOCERT certified bio-Propanediol in Canada.

1,3-Propanediol is an excellent natural alternative to petroleum-based glycols (propylene glycol, butylene glycol, or methyl propanediol) and glycerine. In cosmetics, 1,3-Propanediol is a multipurpose ingredient, acting as:

  • Emollient
  • Humectant
  • Booster
  • Solvent 
  • Viscosity enhancer
  • Carrier for actives

1,3-Propanediol is also miscible with the majority of glycols and alcohols, as well as water, and gives better performance in both skin and hair moisturization when compared to standard glycols.

Well suited to sensitive skin, even at high concentration, 1,3-Propanediol meets the many standards of modern cosmetic formulations.

Natural Product Offering

The agreement, which is effective immediately, will allow Gattefossé to expand its natural product offering for Canadian customers.

President & CEO of Gattefossé USA & Canada, Eric Brun stated:

“As a well-known supplier of naturally based ingredients, the philosophy of our company fits well with that of Connect Chemicals. Adding propanediol to our Canadian portfolio allows us to bring a more rounded natural offering to our customers in the region.”

Connect Chemicals has a special focus on cosmetic raw materials from renewable and sustainable sources, offering a wide range of COSMOS/ECOCERT certified products.
