Speciality chemical manufacturer Angus Chemical has launched a new portfolio of natural botanical extracts for the US market.
The portfolio currently includes green tea leaf, white tea leaf and chamomile flower extracts.
Additional extracts currently under development for an expected launch in the coming months include hibiscus flower, lemon fruit, rosemary leaf, licorice root, calendula flower, and gotu kola.
The botanical extracts are produced by Angus in the US using the traditional method of aqueous extraction and are specifically formulated for use in home and personal care products.
The extracts are made from sustainably sourced plant materials backed by a fully documented and traceable quality system.
"Botanicals are widely used to enhance the luxury and performance of home and personal care products and cater to increasing consumer preferences for products that use naturally derived ingredients," said Mike Lewis, senior vice president, Americas.
"It was only natural that we expand into the fast-growing botanicals space with products produced in-house that leverage decades of manufacturing expertise and the Angus commitment to quality, purity and transparency,” he added.
Two-ounce samples of Angus-produced botanical extracts are now available for customer qualification.
Commercial volumes are available for purchase in 2kg and 5kg packaging only in the US.
