MICRO POWDERS MOVES TO SUSTAINABLE CASTOR


 

Tarrytown, NY – August 2022 – Micro Powders has taken another step in their ongoing commitment to offer products with best-in-class sustainability. Effective immediately, all fine and coarse powder products based on hydrogenated castor oil will now be manufactured exclusively with SuCCESS™ castor oil. This program, the world’s first sustainable castor code, is managed by the Sustainable Castor Association, a not-for-profit company that unites stakeholders from the various sectors of the castor industry, including castor farmers, castor oil mills and refineries, and derivative processors.

 

“Sustainability is an important business objective for many of our customers,” said Rich Czarnecki, Vice President, Micro Powders. “As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility and UN Global Compact initiatives, we took this action to ensure that we are sourcing materials that align closely with our CSR goals.”

 

Products based on hydrogenated castor oil include the Naturescrub H exfoliant series, Naturesoft 810, and NatureFine H325. For more information on the SuCCESS sustainable castor oil program, visit www.castorsuccess.org.
