Innospec has been awarded by Henkel as the Best Innovation Contributor Beauty Care 2020 because of the company's outstanding and creative support in enabling Henkel to launch a shampoo powder formula in record time with its Pureact surfactant technology. Innospec's Pureact line is a versatile range of mild, sulfate-free surfactants which deliver high foaming properties in liquid and solid hair and body care formulations.
Bruce McDonald, President of Innospec Performance Chemicals, said: “We are honoured to receive these two prestigious awards from Henkel, a key partner and one of the global beauty and home care leaders. These awards highlight our ongoing commitment to best-in-class innovation and customer support. Our combination of specialised technology and responsive service enables our customers to continually formulate products which meet their performance and sustainability goals.”
Several challenges and obstacles have occurred during the pandemic, particularly over the first lock down. Through excellent commitment and internal communication between our teams in manufacturing, planning, logistics and supply chain based in Ellesmere Port and Italy we were able to prioritise Henkel and find solutions to continue deliveries of material without disruption of their production.
