Cosmetics & Health care
Daicel cosmetic products feature low-irritation
and rheology control.
Daicel creates new cosmetics, providing safe and
high-quality cosmetic ingredients including odorless
type 1,3-butylene glycol (1,3-BG),
low-irritation surfactants (polyglycerols) and oil thickeners.
In addition, building on our technologies for
extracting and fermenting natural products,
Daicel develops products incorporating our
unique functional materials for the healthcare industry.
These include equol derived from soybeans,
ceramide derived from konjac root,
lactobionic acid derived from milk,
and beta-cryptoxanthin derived from Citrus unshiu.
Daicel plans to expand the scope of these functional
materials by entering the health food and cosmetics markets.
