Biesterfeld_Expands_DistributionBiesterfeld expands distribution partnership with the French manufacturer, PROD’HYG for cosmetic ingredients to Scandinavia and Iceland. Biesterfeld will distribute functional raw materials, such as consistency agents, emollients and preservatives. The product portfolio also includes nature-inspired active ingredients, such as plant extracts.

Distribution Partners Since 2017

Biesterfeld has been distributing PROD’HYG’s portfolio of high-quality functional and specific active ingredients in Spain and Portugal since 2017 and in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine and Bulgaria since 2018.

With immediate effect, the cooperation has now been extended to include the subsidiary Lindberg & Lund AS and covers distribution rights for Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland.

In Scandinavia there is an exceptionally strong demand for high-quality, eco-friendly and vegan products. Our customers prefer products and ingredients of natural origin, ideally also complying with the COSMOS and Nordic Swan standards, mentioning a few, and coming with extensive documentation and the backing of effectiveness studies,” said Lars Martin Haugberg, sales manager Healthcare & LifeScience, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. “

The raw materials supplied by PROD’HYG are the perfect fit for our portfolio in terms of innovative and sustainable product solutions for the cosmetics industry

Portfolio Suitable for Range of Cosmetic Formulations

The natural portfolio includes palm-free, sustainable and fairly-traded ingredients, such as Prodhysoft® ABK. The Allanblackia plant butter, which is COSMOS-certified, reduces epidermal moisture loss and provides long-lasting hydration. It spreads better than both shea and cocoa butter and leaves the skin feeling softer and fresher.

The Hydrobase® line of hydrogenated vegetable oils forms part of the portfolio. With their precise and reproducible melting points, they are suitable for creating specific sensory effects and textures. Their low unsaturated fatty acid content makes them very oxidation-stable. The portfolio is rounded off by the Lactabase® line, which comprises a range of different fatty alcohols esterified with lactic acid.

The raw materials in the portfolio are suitable for a range of cosmetic formulations in skin and hair care, sun care and color-cosmetic applications.

We have a highly successful partnership with Biesterfeld and are confident that we will be just as successful with the Biesterfeld Group in Scandinavia,” added Nicolas Pajot, managing director of Laboratories PROD’HYG. “The Lindberg & Lund Group is extremely well established on the Nordic market and offers a combination of outstanding application-specific consulting and excellent logistics.”
