San Diego-based chemicals firm Genomatica has named Glenn as the exclusive distributor for its Brontide ingredient in the US.
The Azelis-owned company is specifically dedicated to distributing personal care speciality ingredients and is said to be renowned for its technical competence and focus on sustainability.
The natural butylene glycol plant-based ingredient is an alternative to petroleum-based products, a byproduct of the fossil fuel industry.
Brontide can be applied to moisturisers, shampoos, body washes and creams, and is used for moisture retention, improved texture and as a solubiliser for plant extracts, flavour and fragrances.
Genomatica first launched in the European and Asian markets through Daicel and Azelis distributors.
