Bath and hygiene

Join the party—the clean, green, natural scene is here to stay

Supercharge bath, hygiene and body routines with plant-powered ingredients

Consumers today inspect ingredient labels more closely, inspiring  a change in personal care towards easily recognizable, sustainably sourced and naturally derived ingredients.

What does a “clean label” mean?

As it has no regulatory definition, that depends on who you ask. It’s clear that consumers have growing concerns regarding the use of chemicals, potential allergens and irritants. Currently, the US bans 11 ingredients, the EU over 1300. With the global natural skin care market expected to grow to $25 billion by 2025, it’s no surprise that brands that position themselves as clean, simple and natural are reaping the rewards of conscious consumers. With the formulation experts at Ingredion, you can develop products free from undesirable chemicals and GMOs.
