DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products LLC announced entry into the South American market for its 100 percent bio-based product, Zemea® propanediol. The company has appointed Sarfam as distributor for Zemea® for Brazil.

Zemea® is a certified natural ingredient developed for use in cosmetics, personal care and home cleaning products. It is a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols where the product’s lack of skin irritation, improved moisturization and excellent sensorial attributes are benefits.

“Brazil is one of the world’s most dynamic markets for cosmetics and personal care products with several segments enjoying double digit growth rates. Many of the large, multinational companies have a presence in Brazil along with an established base of local manufacturers. The ability to have Sarfam supply Zemea® locally is important to our customer base” says Rose Durham, marketing manager, DuPont Tate & Lyle.

We believe it is an excellent opportunity to further our goal of introducing sustainable and natural products to the Brazilian market that enhance the efficacy and quality of all personal care developments,” says Renata Solfredini, commercial manager at Sarfam.
