- Currently targeted are segments of consumer and industrial ingredients, large and growing markets.
- Strong consumer drivers and growing environmental requirements create a need for new alternatives.
Detergents, Cleaners, Surfactants and Solvents
Elevance's modified triglycerides and novel esters provide unique functionality enabling ingredients that are helping our customers meet growing customer needs, including cold water performance, an improved ability to concentrate detergents, and outstanding cleaning and degreasing performance. They can be used as independent ingredients in formulations or as building blocks for developing novel surfactants, solvents and cleaners, while our renewable-based alpha and internal olefins provide an alternative option to their petro-based competitors. We collaborate with companies like Stepan Company, one of the world's largest manufacturers of surfactants, to screen and develop surfactants based on our nature-based products. This partnership has resulted in commercial products, STEPOSOL® MET-10U and STEPOSOL® CITRI-MET, that are now available.
Personal Care Products
Our personal care ingredients provide naturally derived personal care ingredients with excellent sensory aesthetics and performance. Our innovations are expanding sustainable and renewable product offerings, enabling personal care customers to provide unique products and performance in skin, hair and cosmetic applications to meet changing market trends and needs, and improve their business results. Our personal care ingredients are 100 percent renewable, plant-based materials, and one of their most important attributes is ease of use in a wide range of formulations.
Our oilfield chemicals can be derived from multiple vegetable oil sources such as palm, soybean and canola oil. This versatility allows Elevance to provide a large, secure supply of oilfield chemicals with an improved price stability/competitiveness when compared to d-limonene. Independent laboratory test results show that as a hydraulic fracturing fluid co-solvent, our oilfield chemicals match or beat d-limonene’s ability to improve the productivity of oil and gas well. Finally, our oilfield chemicals contain no petroleum-based solvents such as benzene, toluene or xylene (BTX), are renewable, readily biodegradable, and non-flammable.
