DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Receives USDA BioPreferred Certification for ZemeaDuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products has received USDA certification for Zemea® propanediol, declaring that the petroleum-based glycol alternative is a 100% bio-based ingredient.

Zemea® propanediol is a natural ingredient derived from corn to be used in cosmetic, personal care and home cleaning product formulation in place of petroleum-based glycols. The ingredient has also been certified natural by Ecocert and Natural Products Association.

“In addition to its bio-based content, the Zemea® manufacturing process delivers excellent environmental performance resulting in a lower energy usage and less greenhouse gas emissions when compared to its petroleum equivalent,” said Joe DeSalvo, marketing director, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products.

Under the USDA’s BioPreferred program, biobased products are defined as those composed wholly or significantly of agricultural ingredients

Recently, the company has expanded distribution worldwide. According to the company, Zemea® has been formulated into over 500 cosmetics and personal care products across the globe.
