Innovate with fewer chemicals
Developing and refining nature-based biopolymers that perform as well as or better than synthetic or petroleum based polymers is a constant goal at Ingredion. We’re working to improve performance and affordability with naturally based products in four key segments: bioplastics, glass fiber, personal care, and fabric and home care.
In the building industry, for example, our new BENEFORM® functional biopolymers are helping customers achieve unique benefits in durable, semi-durable and disposable plastic products. It performs without raising the cost or compromising the quality of plastics, withstands recyclability (three cycles) without losing strength and reduces water absorption during processing—all while improving sustainability.
In personal care products, we’re pioneering new ways to reduce aluminum while protecting sensory characteristics. We’re even using innovative starch solutions to support fluid loss inhibitors in oil drilling, so less fluid is lost in the drilling substrates—reducing environmental impact.
However you want to reduce chemicals, talk to our biomaterials experts. You’ll find exciting new ways to achieve all the functionality of synthetic polymers—naturally.
