Innospec Sweeps the Floor with Contribution Award


At the 2017 American Cleaning Institute annual meeting and industry convention, Innospec was honored with the Best Innovation Contributor–Beauty Care award for its work with Henkel. The award recognized Innospec as a leader in sulfate-free technologies and marketing surfactants for mild and effective cleaning. The company specifically worked with Henkel to create an effective sulfate-free shampoo.

Innospec has worked with sulfate-free formulas for hair and skin since 2009. The collaboration between Innospec and Henkel focused on bettering the foam quality of its shampoo formulation. Innospec also developed a platform for Henkel’s fiber force formulas based on the combination of taurates, glycosides and betaines. Henkel announced that Innospec’s sulfate-free formula will be implemented into the company’s entire line of professional products.

Bruce McDonald, president of Innospec, said, “We are truly delighted to receive this prestigious accolade and would like to thank Henkel for the opportunity to collaborate. We are very proud of the work we did with Henkel and it demonstrates, once again, that the research and development work we do at Innospec is truly world-class.”
