News Date : 06/13/2018

WESTCHESTER, Ill., June 13, 2018 – Ingredion Incorporated, a global provider of ingredient solutions, today announced Kinetik Technologies as the Company’s U.S. distribution partner. Kinetik, a leading-edge distributor of raw materials for the beauty and personal care industry, will help make Ingredion’s plant-based ingredient solutions available to more small and midsize manufacturers.

“Partnering with Kinetik strategically allows us to expand our reach to beauty and personal care manufacturers who want to enhance the performance of conditioners for softer hair, make lathers richer and deliver more effective oil-absorbing powders, while reducing synthetic chemicals in their products,” said Elaine Harris, senior manager, business development, North America, Beauty and Home, Ingredion Incorporated.

Harris adds, “Products to be distributed include Ingredion’s new NATIVACARE™ naturally-based polymer range, which meets the COSMOS standard to be ECOCERT natural and ECOCERT organic certified. The polymer helps deliver effective rheology and sensory performance with no chemical modifications for the clean label appeal that consumers want in their personal hygiene and cosmetic products. In addition, our FARMAL® plant-based polymers help enable excellent flowability, deliver superior oil absorption, and enhance skin feel, leaving a soft, matte finish in powder applications. For superior conditioning and deposition properties on hair and skin, PENCARE bio-based polymer helps achieve better performance than traditional synthetic ingredients.”

“Kinetik specializes in naturally active and functional ingredients of the highest quality through extensive technical and commercial capabilities,” said Christopher Johnson, managing director, Kinetik Technologies. “With the addition of Ingredion’s broad portfolio of plant-based ingredient solutions, we can now help our customers in their pursuit to bring more clean label alternatives to the beauty and personal care market.”
