  • The USDA Developed the BioPreferred program to help consumers identify bio-based products.
  • ADM’s Propylene Glycol is certified by USDA as 100% bio-based due to its crop-derived raw material source
dissolvine GL
  • Akzo Nobel’s Dissolvine GL chelating agent is certified as 58% bio-based, made from MSG and fermented sugar.


  • Ivanhoe Industries produces emulsifiers based on vegetable-derived Sorbitol and Glycerine, as well as non-silicone defoamers from vegetable oils.


  • Ask TLC about “friendlier” alternatives to petrochemical-derived surfactants. Many are derived from sustainable Oleochemicals and Fatty Alcohols.
