Answering consumer suspicions of genetic modification Lonza extends
its portfolio with a non-GM version of emulsifiers.

The Swiss biotech and chemical firm has just launched its first non-GMO glycosperse polysorbates line of emulsifiers.

The new line of Kosher polysorbates is produced from non-GM raw materials: non-GMO sorbitol (from tapioca), ethylene oxide, and non-GMO fatty acids (palm-based).

Lonza claims that its glycospersen line offers "a range of HLB, hydrophilic-lipophilic balance, and values from 11-15 for maximum flexibility in selecting the best emulsifier combination for formulation needs."

The glycosperse range, adds the firm, are available in bulk, drums and totes.

Earlier this year Lonza was awarded by Frost & Sullivan award for developing the Natrulon DermaSphere Oleosome Technology.

The self-emulsifying technology was developed in conjunction with SemBioSys Genetics.

The technology uses novel constituents - oleosomes - which facilitate the formulation of various cosmetic and personal care products with "unique properties at competitive manufacturing costs,"​ claims the firm.
