Christeyns and Brenntag join forces on fatty acid esters

Christeyns Oleochemicals Division has come to an agreement with chemicals distributor Brenntag Specialties Europe to market Christeyns’ fatty acid esters in the European Personal Care and Cosmetics sector.

Fatty acid esters are a new addition to Christeyns’ product portfolio. Christeyns’ Oleochemicals Division already plays a leading role in the development and production of oleochemicals in different physical forms such as powders, liquids, flakes, noodles and dispersions. But conform with the division’s long-term growth strategy whilst responding to clear customer needs, the company decided end of 2010 to expand its product range with fatty acid esters. One year of extensive R&D and a 3 million euro factory investment later, Christeyns has developed a specialty fatty acid portfolio under the brand name Besteris, and is also ready to offer customized ester formulae to the Personal Care and Cosmetics market.

The fatty acid esters are produced in Christeyns’ production facility in Ghent, Belgium and will be available first half 2012.
