Croda - Experts in personal care ingredients

Innovation and sustainability are at the heart of our business and is reflected in all of our personal care products and formulations. Over our history, and especially the last decade, our skin, sun, colour and hair care technologists have been thought leaders, creating unique and patented technologies, in both functional and effect ingredients, designed to answer personal care trends.  Our formulation and technology expertise allows us to be more than just a sustainable personal care ingredient supplier to our partners.

Diverse scientists in laboratory
We operate globally, with 36 offices worldwide and operational locations specifically chosen in Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe, all of which enhance our knowledge of local markets, ensuring that we can facilitate close customer working relationships.

Our Asian headquarters are located in Singapore, where the CTC (Collaboration & Training Centre) has recently launched. This state of the art facility includes a customer demonstration centre and is equipped with industry leading product validation and claims substantiation labs. The EMEA region is our most diverse region and we continue to work hard to understand its growing sophistication and complexities. Our Centre of Excellence in Africa, has both an efficacy and a formulation lab, with a hair salon and a temperature controlled skin and hair testing facility. Alongside our six sales offices across the Latin American region, we also have local labs in Mexico and Brazil, guaranteeing excellent service for our customers. North America has a number of manufacturing sites located across the United States, with a real focus on sustainability, in particular at our Atlas Point site. This is a site in which 75% of the manufacturing energy comes from land fill gas and solar. It is also home to our bio-based surfactant plant, the very first plant of this type in North America.
