Corbion: the global market leader in lactic acid and lactic acid  derivatives

Corbion delivers biobased high performance functional ingredients that are applied in global markets such as food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, home and personal care, packaging, coatings and adhesives.

For personal care applications, Corbion Purac offers biobased L-Lactic Acid and Lactates that are some of the most natural, safe and cost-effective ingredients that formulators can use.

L-Lactic Acid and its derivatives are widely known for pH adjustment and buffering, as well as for their excellent moisturizing and anti-aging properties.


Effective ingredients, inspired by nature.

Corbion Purac’s lactates are excellent humectants and a major contributor to the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), thus playing a crucial role in optimizing skin hydration.

Specific lactates, such as calcium lactate and zinc lactate, are excellent sources of calcium and zinc respectively, for oral care, skin care and hair care applications.

L-Lactic Acid, 'the body's own alpha hydroxy acid' is one of the most efficient and cost-effective anti-aging active ingredients existing today. Its anti-aging effects derive from its ability to moisturize,  stimulate exfoliation and cell renewal, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.

Corbion Purac offers full support to help you discover the natural efficacy of L-Lactic Acid and its derivatives in your formulations and applications.
