DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Announces Winner of Zemea® Innovation Award

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company LLC today announces the winner of the inaugural Zemea® Innovation Award program launched on Jan. 3, 2013. Knowlton Development Corp. (KDC) was selected as the winner for its patented Natural Zea deodorant stick platform.

Zemea® propanediol is a natural, 100 percent biobased ingredient made from corn sugar through fermentation and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market. It is a high-performance, environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s lack of skin irritation, improved moisturization and excellent aesthetic properties are benefits. Zemea® is approved as a natural ingredient by Ecocert and the Natural Products Association; is certified 100 percent biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and has both Kosher and Halal certifications.

The Zemea® Innovation Award program is designed to recognize companies who have commercialized innovative cosmetics and personal care ingredients or finished products that contain Zemea® propanediol. A panel of judges including Tom Branna, vice president and editorial director of HAPPI magazine, Steve Herman, chair of the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists and professor of cosmetic science at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and Steve Hurff, vice president of marketing and sales, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, reviewed and evaluated 14 nominations from around the globe.

"It is exciting to see the breadth of nominations submitted from around the world where Zemea® is a critical part of the innovation achievements. KDC’s developments with Zemea® truly embody the spirit of the Zemea® Innovation Award. Specifically, KDC started with targeted product claims built around the performance and sustainable attributes of Zemea® which has resulted in this innovative natural deodorant offering,” said Steve Hurff, vice president of marketing and sales, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products.

“KDC recognizes and understands the importance of the natural products market, and is a leading formulator and producer of natural personal care products. Zemea® propanediol enabled KDC to formulate an efficacious, mild, 100 percent natural deodorant that is clinically proven to support a 24-hour odor protection claim,” commented Matt Unger, vice president of global business development, innovation and marketing, Knowlton Development Corp.

Knowlton Development Corp., headquartered in Quebec, Canada, is a leading contract manufacturer and formulator for the personal care industry. KDC operates four strategically located manufacturing sites across North America.
