The supply chains of personal care and cosmetics manufacturers vary according to global circumstances. This is especially true in emerging markets, explains Booth. To accommodate the needs of diverse formulators, the company delivers ingredients in different forms.
Depending on a customer’s requirements, AkzoNobel adjusts its chemicals from a “dry form to a slurry, a powder to a solution. Or if the shelf life is short from a liquid to a dry form,” Booth tells Cosmetics Design.
