Ashland_Film_Former_SunAshland receives PCHi 2020 Fountain award for Antaron™ ECo ethylcellulose in the “Green and Sustainable” category. Ashland’s Rosaliss™ biofunctional was also shortlisted. The award was presented virtually due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Antaron™ Eco is Halal and Kosher Certified

Antaron™ ECo ethylcellulose is a nature-derived, water-resistant film former. The globally complaint ingredient provides excellent water resistance at a low use level of 0.5 percent in most formulations. Antaron™ Eco is Halal and Kosher certified, vegan suitable, and imparts formula aesthetics. The product is recommended for sun care emulsions, gels and alcohol sprays, daily moisturizers, primers, foundations, bb/cc creams, lipsticks, and eye products.

We are continually reinventing our portfolio for future generations. Antaron™ ECo ethylcellulose was created with sustainability at the forefront. It is derived from zero-deforestation, wood-derived cellulose and made in a water-based manufacturing process, minimizing the use of solvents,” said Joseph Torella, global vice president, skin and hair care, Ashland.

Rosaliss™ biofunctional Repairs Skin

Rosaliss™ biofunctional is an extract obtained by plant small RNA technology (PSR™) for flawless skin self-repair and more healthy-looking skin.

This award once again rewards Ashland’s comprehensive approach to sustainability. We are seeking out ingenious ways to meet the future needs of our customers. The ingredient hits the target on key consumer drivers while providing a safe and easy-to-apply sun protection, and it is also listed on global chemical inventories, including Australis, Canada and China,” said William Zhao, general manager, personal care and household, Asia Pacific.

The PCHi Fountain awards increase and elevate research capabilities and the development of innovative and sustainable technologies.
