DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Collaborates with RML Incorporated to Develop Bio-Based Solution for Personal Care Products

New PolyGuard preservative systems feature Zemea® Propanediol.

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company LLC is proud to announce that it has partnered with RML, Inc. in creating a new line of alternative preservatives called PolyGuard. The PolyGuard line features the proprietary ingredient Zemea® propanediol.

Zemea® is a natural, 100 percent bio-based ingredient made from corn sugar through fermentation and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market. It is a high-performance, environmentally friendly sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s lack of skin irritation, improved moisturization and excellent aesthetic properties are benefits. Zemea® is approved as a natural ingredient by Ecocert and the Natural Products Association; it is certified 100 percent bio-based by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and has both Kosher and Halal certifications.
