Innovate with fewer chemicals

Developing nature-based bio-polymers that perform as well as or better than synthetic or petroleum-based polymers is a constant goal at Ingredion. We’re working to improve performance and affordability with naturally based products in four key segments: bio-plastics, glass fibre, personal care, and fabric and home care.

In the building industry, for example, our new BENEFORM® functional bio-polymers are helping customers achieve unique benefits in durable, semi-durable and disposable plastic products. They perform without raising the cost or compromising the quality of plastics, withstand recyclability (three cycles) without losing strength and reduce water absorption during processing—all while improving sustainability.

In personal care products, we’re pioneering new ways to reduce aluminium while protecting sensory characteristics. 

However you want to reduce chemicals, talk to our biomaterials experts. You’ll find exciting new ways to achieve all the functionality of synthetic polymers—naturally.
