P2 Science Launches New Patented Line of Cosmetics Ingredients

Citrolatum™ is a new line of biorenewable, biocompatible and biodegradable petrolatum-like jellies for cosmetics and toiletries applications

P2 Science, Inc. (P2), a renewable chemistry company, today announced the launch of a brand new, unique, bioderived and patented line of cosmetic semi-solid ingredients. The new line, trade-named Citrolatum™, is built on the innovative Citropol® platform. As such, Citrolatum products are derived from upgraded forestry by-products from Forest Stewardship Council certified forests.

Commercial production of the new product line will start soon at P2’s state-of-the-art green chemistry manufacturing facility in Naugatuck, CT. Samples and product literature are available now at the company’s website, and products can be purchased directly on the company’s e-store – also on the website.

“This Citrolatum line represents a revolutionary step by P2 into a new product form – that is semi-solid ingredients. We expect these ingredients to find immediate wide application as alternatives to petrolatum – among many other uses” said Neil Burns, CEO of P2. “Customers have been asking us for months if we have the capability to supply anything that looks and acts like petrolatum but is bioderived. We believe formulators will find the answer in our Citrolatum line – a technical achievement that we are proud to bring to market.”

The Citrolatum launch represents the 7th and 8th products to be commercialized by P2 since April of this year.
