CosmeGreen, SurfactGreen's first cosmetic surfactant

CosmeGreen, le premier tensioactif cosmétique de SurfactGreen

Following the principles of green chemistry, SurfactGreen offers different types of eco-compatible, bio-sourced and biodegradable surfactants. They are obtained from renewable raw materials that do not compete with the food chain, which makes high-volume production possible. The surfactants developed by SurfactGreen find various applications: bituminous emulsions, industrial detergents, phyto-sanitary products, and now, with the new Cosmegreen, cosmetics.
