BASF drives sustainable palm with major portfolio switch personal care specialties will be offered as certified sustainable
In its global palm initiative “Time for Change” BASF takes another step toward sustainable palm kernel oil: In 2018, we shift our Personal Care portfolio and will offer palm-based specialties for the cosmetics industry exclusively as certified sustainable. “Some of our customers have already made the step”, said Xavier Susterac, Senior Vice President BASF Personal Care Europe. About 330 palm-based products will be switched to ‘Mass Balance’ standard in the course of 2018. Enhanced IT processes will make it easier for our customers to change to Mass Balance ingredients.
