Our Story

Croda was founded in 1925 by an entrepreneur, Mr. Crowe, and a chemist, Mr. Dawe, to refine wool grease from the growing Yorshire wool trade into lanolin. Their unique partnership and collaboration sparked innovation and inspiration that shaped Croda's future forever. With sustainability at our core, we partner with our customers and suppliers to turn exciting ideas into amazing beauty solutions. Try us, the possibilities are endless.
