Biesterfeld and CHT conclude pan-European distribution agreement on silicones for the personal care segment

With immediate effect, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie is to distribute silicones from specialist manufacturer CHT for the personal care segment. The distribution agreement for high-performance silicone solutions applies to central Europe, including Russia and Turkey.

The extensive and innovative silicone portfolio, known under the trade name CHT-BeauSil®, offers solutions designed to be used in all cosmetics applications. These include elastomers, aminofunctional silicones, emulsifiers, waxes and gum blends. One innovation patented by CHT is silicones modified from sugar cane: the cationic CHT-BeauSil® AMO 902 and CHT-BeauSil® AMO 918. CHT-BeauSil® Fluid 8301, a blend of natural ingredients and a caprylyl methicone, offers the perfect alternative to cyclopentasiloxanes. Customised solutions tailored to customer requirements are also available.

"There is still high international demand for high-quality, innovative silicone solutions for cosmetic and personal care products. CHT offers both high-performance products and individual customer solutions that are a perfect fit for our personal care portfolio in terms of comprehensive product solutions," explains Bettina Heick, Business Manager LifeScience, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. "We're delighted to be entering into this partnership with CHT and we believe our cosmetics customers throughout Europe will benefit from this tailor-made product range, since hybrid concepts combining natural ingredients and silicones are especially popular at the moment."

"Biesterfeld Spezialchemie has not only an excellent market presence but also a high level of technical expertise, which represents real added value for customers, especially when it comes to creating and optimising their formulations," adds Eva Baumann, CHT Germany, Head of Business Field General Industries EMEA. "We believe that we have found the right distribution partner in Biesterfeld and we look forward to a successful partnership."
