Biodegradation & Compostation Cosmetics

BASF Goes For Biodegradable Cosmetics

BASF introduces two biodegradable alternatives to cosmetic ingredients.
  • Euperlan OP White

  • Cegesoft Peel

A biodegradable spherical wax beads (also glycol distearate) that provide mild and gentle exfoliation and may replace plastic microbeads.
