Naturally caring for everyone
In an era where sustainability is the guiding compass and consumers are increasingly conscious of their individual actions' impact on the planet, the demand for beauty products made with biodegradable ingredients is on the rise. At Syensqo, a global leader in naturally-derived polymers for hair and skin care, we understand the urgency for change.
Introducing Naternal™ – our brand that embodies regenerative beauty, caring for farming communities, customers, end-consumers, and the planet. With a commitment to action over words, Naternal™ demonstrates effective regeneration and paves the way for a more sustainable future.
Next-gen, bio-based biodegradable polymers
By leveraging the biodegradable by design approach, all Naternal™ products will be designed with the aim of leaving minimum traces in the environment. This means they will belong to categories A and B on the Beauty Biodeg Score, created by Syensqo experts to measure the level of degradation of beauty care ingredients by microorganisms over a given period of time. This score was established based on the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) guidelines, precisely the OECD 301 F and OECD 302 B. Thanks to this methodology, we are able to assign a biodegradability score to our ingredients.
A natural starting point for growth
Based on a forward-looking concept that combines the power of nature and science, Naternal™ groups together bio-based, biodegradable polymers for thickening and conditioning and will be the natural container for all future biodegradable beauty solutions derived from natural feedstocks that will also tackle the styling. Naternal™ cares about sourcing, performance, and the regenerative legacy for the planet.
