DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company LLC is excited to announce that it has partnered with Bio-Botanica® Inc. in creating a new line of botanical extracts called ZeaBasics™. These products, manufactured by Bio-Botanica® Inc., feature the proprietary ingredient Zemea® propanediol.

Zemea® is a natural, 100 percent biobased ingredient made from corn sugar through fermentation and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market. It is a high-performance, environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s lack of skin irritation, improved moisturization and excellent aesthetic properties are benefits. Zemea® is approved as a natural ingredient by Ecocert, Natrue and the Natural Products Association; is certified 100 percent biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and has both Kosher and Halal certifications.    

Bio-Botanica® Inc. utilizes its proprietary Bio-Chelated® process to manufacture the botanical extracts and combines them with Zemea® for natural personal care and cosmetic applications. ZeaBasics™ combines 40 years of botanical extract manufacturing experience from Bio-Botanica® with the new technology of Zemea®.

Formulators should consider ZeaBasics™ for their natural products. ZeaBasics™ provide exceptional natural botanical benefits while reducing the feeling of tackiness, greasiness and increasing the perception of easy absorption and smoothness, providing an overall pleasant consumer experience.
