Lubrizol has entered into a global collaboration project with Suzano, the world’s leading eucalyptus pulp and paper producer, to develop natural-based ingredients using renewable materials for the beauty, personal and home care markets.
The partnership will combine Lubrizol’s science, formulation, and market expertise with Suzano’s knowledge in all varieties and applications of eucalyptus bioproduct cellulosic biomaterials.
Lubrizol said the collaboration gives the combined technical teams the ability to explore, innovate, and grow the combined portfolio of offerings for the beauty, personal, and home care markets.
“This is another step in our journey to develop high-performing ingredients and become a leader in delivering naturally derived, biodegradable, and sustainable solutions,” said Bernardo Medeiros, vice-president, beauty and home for Lubrizol.
Vinicius Nonino, executive officer of new business at Suzano, added: “Our expectation with the partnership is that we can take the planted eucalyptus, a renewable recyclable raw material, and expand its different applications based on the innovability concept, which is innovation in favour of sustainability.”
“These new solutions will meet the aspirations of the society in building a more sustainable world, which is fully aligned with our organizational purpose of ‘Renewing life inspired by trees’.”
