GreenDiol – The Hardest Working Natural Polyol You Need

Posted on November 5th, 2021

Now more than ever, consumers are paying attention to the specific ingredients going into the products they use on a daily basis. A shift in values over the past decade underscores a demand for safe, sustainable ingredients that support the health of the people using them as well as the planet. The educated consumer is asking: what am I eating? What chemicals am I spraying on my countertops? What’s in the cream that I’m putting on my face? In a time where we are increasingly reading “clean” on our health and beauty labels, it’s no surprise retailers are investing more into research that evaluates the efficacy of “green” ingredients. But can these ingredients match up against their synthetic counterparts?

In the case of GreenDiol™, an eco-alternative to synthetic polyol, yes, it can. GreenDiol (a tradename for 2,3-butanediol), produced by GS Caltex Corporation in Seoul, South Korea, is a natural polyol that offers a convenient alternative to personal care formulators. Produced through fermentation, GreenDiol functions as a humectant, preservative booster, solvent, and even provides benefits to hair treatments and colorants.  This multi-functional, biobased polyol packs a lot of value into one ingredient. Even more, it is a naturally occurring material found in the simplest of environments including soil, plants, honey, wine and even the human body. GreenDiol is sourced from sugarcane and is non-GMO, COSMOS approved, EU-REACH registered, VEGAN certified and USDA bio-based certified. It is readily biodegradable and has an ISO 16128 natural index of 1.

The real beauty of GreenDiol is that it doesn’t sacrifice performance for its sustainability bells and whistles. In studies conducted by Sumitomo Corporation’s cosmetic group companies’ R&D teams (Presperse is a Sumitomo Corporation Group Company), GreenDiol was tested against other polyols to determine if it could produce similar or better results that would make it a valuable asset to formulators looking for a natural alternative. The results revealed just how valuable GreenDiol is as a multiuse ingredient.
