Ingredion is a leading global ingredients solutions company. We make sweeteners, starches, nutrition ingredients and biomaterials that are used by customers in everyday products from foods and beverages to paper and personal care.

Consumers are becoming more aware of the potential hazards associated with products they put in or on their bodies. And, in just the same way that consumer preferences in foods and beverages have seen a huge shift towards products that are “natural” and “free from artificial ingredients and colours”, a similar trend is emerging in beauty and personal care products.

Ingredion’s PENCARE™ DP cationic polymer and FARMAL® beauty and personal care solutions help you to meet this challenge head on, allowing you to replace synthetic chemicals in your products with naturally-derived, sustainable ingredients to create green products your customers will be confident to use.

In addition, these solutions will ensure that your products can benefit from the unique performance improvements that only Ingredion’s innovative all-natural ingredients can bring. 
Ingredion’s personal care ingredients are based on high quality, renewable and sustainable vegetable-based sources that are non-GM and not tested on animals. They can help you boost product performance and your corporate reputation in a wide range of beauty and personal care applications, including:

  • Shampoos
  • Conditioners
  • Body washes
  • Body scrubs
  • Lotions
  • Depilatory creams
  • Lip balms
  • Make-up
  • Deodorant
  • Shaving creams
  • Baby powder
  • The products are based on:
  • Modified and unmodified starches
  • Functional native starches
  • Speciality maltodexdrins
  • Hydrolysed starches
  • Dextrose
  • Corn oil
  • Gluten protein
  • Polyols
  • Caramel colour

Ingredion’s beauty and personal care solution can enhance key physical and sensorial attributes of your products, making them more attractive to your consumers. For example, our starches contribute a velvety feel that is soft and smooth to the touch. They are also water and oil absorbent, and can reduce shine and moisture.
In addition to improving performance characteristics in areas that are important to your customers, the efficacy of Ingredion’s products means you can often use significantly less of them compared to alternative products, reducing your costs.
