As previously reported, the Citrolatum technologies are built on the Citropol platform. As such, they are derived from upgraded forest by-products from Forest Stewardship Council-certified forests.

Citrolatum B and C are 100% biorenewable cosmetic semi-solids and viable natural alternatives to petrolatum. The ingredients reportedly impart a creamy, smooth feel in personal care and cosmetic formulations, and can modify the rheology of medium and high-viscosity formulations. Both are compatible in lip, skin and hair care applications without compromising human and environmental safety.
