Biesterfeld extends exclusive distribution rights for world's first seaweed-based emulsifier from Carbonwave to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia

Hamburg, 22. June, 2023 - Biesterfeld, one of the world's leading distributors in the field of plastics, rubber and specialty chemicals, is exclusively extending its existing distribution of Carbonwave's SeaBalance 2000 product with immediate effect. At the beginning of the year, Biesterfeld was already granted distribution rights for the DACH region, Poland and the Baltic States – now the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia will be added. Carbonwave is a public benefit corporation whose mission is to enable gigaton-scale carbon drawdown by upcycling Sargassum seaweed into ultra-regenerative, plant-based biomaterials. 

SeaBalance 2000 is a seaweed-based cosmetic emulsifier made from upcycled sargassum seaweed. ISO16128 99.5% natural and suitable for body and cosmetic applications.

"We are pleased to be able to expand our existing distribution rights with Carbonwave after only a few months. This is a clear indication of the excellent cooperation so far. Our team can now reach even more customers across Europe to meet the growing demand for sustainable raw materials and resources," says Jyle Garleff, Product Manager, Biesterfeld Specialty Chemicals.

"The first months of cooperation with Biesterfeld were characterized by mutual trust and success. For us, an extension of the distribution rights was therefore the next logical step. We look forward to a continued successful partnership," says Jeff Yeh, Vice President of Personal Care, Carbonwave.
