Introducing our 100% bio-based ECO range of surfactants

The 100% bio-based ECO range is the widest range of 100% renewable surfactants on the market. By using an alternate route to EO with bioethanol from biomass sources, it significantly increases the bio-based content of ethoxylated products and reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, the ingredients are manufactured with renewable energy, yet their performance is identical to petro-based options.

The ECO range caters to the tremendous consumer need for greener products. Now, with the 100% renewable, 100% bio-based ECO range, customers won't have to choose between meeting their sustainability goals and delivering high-performance products to consumers.
