Shanghai, February 15, 2022 – German specialty chemicals company LANXESS is showcasing at PCHi in Guangzhou its comprehensive portfolio and concentrated expertise in the field of active ingredients and formulations for personal and home care products which are part of the Consumer Protection segment. This segment is characterized by strong brands with high product quality, innovative technologies and a global sales and service network to protect people and their environment.


Sustainable low carbon products

F&F is presenting its comprehensive portfolio for personal and home care, including Kalaguard® SB, Purox® B, Purox® S, Solbrol®, and Purolan® brand products. They are widely used in various consumer goods, such as cosmetics, personal care products as well as home care products like fabric softener or hand dish liquid.


Purox ®S sodium benzoate combines low odor and high purity, which is suitable for infant skin care products and baby wet wipes. Purolan® PD-LO (pentylene glycol) has a very low odor, which is a good choice for preservative-free cosmetic and wipe formulations.

All F&F products including Sodium Benzoate and Benzyl Alcohol will be available based on sustainable raw materials, reducing their carbon footprint. At the same time, the business unit has further reduced the CO2 emissions of manufacturing sites due to the use of green energy.
