HallStar has formally acquired the Florasolvs® series brand natural esters products and technology from Floratech, a globally renowned provider of botanically-derived ingredients. The Florasolvs line includes PEG-150 Hydrogenated Jojoba, PEG-120 Jojoba, PEG-80 Jojoba, PEG-16 Macadamia, and PEG-10 Sunflower product lines.
This recent acquisition is one in a series of steps HallStar has taken to expand their natural functional ingredients portfolio. In 2011, The HallStar Company, acquired B&T Company, a worldwide leader in olive-based performance ingredients for use in personal care products, and BioChemica International, a leading developer of exotic butters and oils. Throughout this time, they have also continued internal investments in product and applications development focused on their growing Naturals product offering.
The Florasolvs product line has a strong reputation of providing solutions with functional benefits to personal care formulations, particularly in the areas of Skincare and Haircare and is an ideal complement to HallStar's growing Naturals business.
