October 2007

As of 15th November 2007, Surfachem’s agreement with Lubrizol Advanced Materials (formerly Noveon®) will be extended to include the Methyl Glucoside and Lanolin Derivatives.

Over the last 12 years Surfachem and Lubrizol have forged a successful partnership in the UK and Ireland developing the Carbopol®, Fixate™, Pemulen®, Novemer™ and Schercemol™ brands into personal care, homecare and pharmaceutical markets. This success has led to Lubrizol’s decision to extend the agreement to include the Methyl Glucoside and Lanolin Derivatives.

The Methyl Glucoside Derivatives are a range of vegetable-derived ingredients offering outstanding emolliency, improved emulsification, humectancy, moisturisation and thickening.

Lubrizol’s Lanolin Derivatives, also naturally derived, offer exceptional performance and outstanding versatility, whether you are looking for something to soften the skin, condition the hair or stabilise your formulation, we now have the right lanolin for your formulating needs.

If you would like any more information on any of these products please contact us.
