Our Markets

Vantage Personal Care is part of the Company's Consumer Solutions division and represents approximately 40% of Vantage sales.

  • Skin Care

    • Skin care formulations need to bring together biological efficacy and sensorial excitement. Vantage’s solutions for skin care include high performance active ingredients with substantiated activity for cosmetic claims and enhanced delivery for acne treatment. Our encapsulation technologies empower brands with emotion-rich ingredients that combine activity and visual stimulation.

  • Hair Care

    • Our hair is fully exposed to the external world and has little ability to protect itself. In contrast to skin, there are few if any endogenous repair processes occurring in the hair shaft or on the surface and thus it is crucial to provide efficient care to maintain its healthy appearance. Vantage offers a broad portfolio of ingredients that help condition, replenish and enhance the aesthetics of the hair and the scalp.

  • Cosmetics

    • Vantage offers a myriad of ingredients to achieve high performance and supreme aesthetics in color formulations: robust and pigment-compatible emulsifying systems, natural silicone alternatives, sensory powders for improved skin feel and immediate visual effect, pigment binders and film-formers for bold color impact.

  • Bath and Shower

    • Vantage’s range of ingredients for bath and shower includes primary and co-surfactants, solubilizers, sulfate-free surfactants. These functional ingredients can be combined with sensorial ingredients like encapsulated beads or specialty emollients and humectants in order to enhance the visual and sensorial impact of your formulations. Our products allow for bar soap producers throughout the United States to produce a soap bar that the marketplace has known to love. Vantage products help aid in the texture of the bar soap along with providing a foamy, and stable lather that last through the bathing experience.
