It’s time for a better glycol. Safe + pure

Brontide is a natural butylene glycol of high purity (>99.7%). Made from renewable, non-GMO plant sugars, it contains no heavy metals at detectable levels

and has been shown in clinical studies to be non irritating at levels of up to 40% in formulations. It integrates into current formulations without sacrificing

quality or or the need for reformulation.

Naturally sourced Brontide butylene glycol is a high-performance ingredient used in a variety of personal care and cosmetic applications. It can also be used

as a solvent and stabilizer for extracts and actives. Personal care formulators no longer have to sacrifice performance for natural origin.

  • Conforms to ISO 16128-1 as Natural Ingredient with a natural index of 1

Brontide natural butylene glycol is functionally identical to traditionally produced butylene glycol in personal care

applications. Use it as a drop-in replacement in existing formulations. To determine functional equivalency, Genomatica

used third-party laboratories to conduct comparative performance testing of the primary functional benefits.

As a multi-functional ingredient, it also stands up as the best in class for sensory experience by achieving superior

performance scores in the positive attribute categories of gloss/shine, spreadability and slipperiness with comparable performance in afterfeel and rub out.

Brontide is made in Europe from an innovative fermentation process which converts non-GMO plant sugars into an

ultra high purity butylene glycol, eliminating the need to use crude oil as a feedstock. Furthermore Genomatica carried out a life cycle assessment

(ISO:14040:2006) to quantify our environmental impact compared to petroleum-based butylene glycol that was peer-reviewed by an independent panel.

The impacts of Brontide natural butylene glycol are vastly lower.

What happens when you replace petroleum-derived butylene glycol with Brontide?

The fermentation process used to create Brontide, reduces global warming potential by 50% compared to a petroleum-based butylene glycol production

process. The production process used to create Brontide, uses 46% less non-renewable energy than the petroleum-based butylene glycol production process.
