Daicel to be Responsible for Marketing of Genomaticas Biobased 1,3-Butylene Glycol in Asia-Pacific

Genomatica and Daicel Corporation announced that Daicel will be responsible for marketing Genomatica’s new, naturally sourced, awardwinning 1,3-butylene glycol, in the Asia-Pacific region. Daicel earns revenues of USD $4 billion per year and is a leading supplier and marketer of ingredients for the personal care industry.

A naturally sourced, sustainable alternative; Genomatica’s biobased 1,3-butylene glycol already honored for innovation 1,3-Butylene glycol, a four-carbon alcohol, is commonly used in personal care products to increase moisture retention (as a humectant), improve texture and provide antimicrobial properties. Additionally, it is used as a solubilizer for plant extracts, flavors and fragrances. Genomatica produces biobased 1,3-

butylene glycol from natural, plant-based sugars using its safe and sustainable fermentation-basedprocess technology. This new approach has high appeal in personal care applications where demand for natural ingredients is growing. Genomatica’s technology and product has already been recognized with the prestigious ICIS Innovation Award.

The cosmetic market in the Asia-Pacific region has been growing rapidly, and demand for natural cosmetics has been growing twice as fast. The initial focus of the collaboration will be to identify potential customers for Genomatica’s naturally sourced 1,3-butylene glycol in the personal care market plus additional potential markets. Genomatica has been producing tons of biobased 1,3-butylene glycol for sampling since mid-2017.
