Des Moines, IA, United States, 2011/06/29 - Vanguard Soap, an industry leader in bar and liquid soap contract manufacturing, plans to use Rosamox™ LC, a natural antioxidant from Kemin, to manufacture bar soaps with all-natural soap bases.
Vanguard Soap has seen large sales increases in the past two years, particularly with customers looking for more natural soap base alternatives. This surge in demand encouraged Vanguard and its sister company Valley Products to work with Kemin over the last year to develop a new natural bar soap base preservative system with more dependable shelf life stability and superb product quality.
Rosamox, a technology developed from a Kemin proprietary line of rosemary, works to prevent oxidative degradation of fats and oils. Rosamox LC was developed specifically for bar soap bases after extensive development and testing.
"We engaged in this partnership with Kemin because we felt the efficacy and safety of Rosamox was the best solution to help us manufacture a natural soap base that will stay fresh and meet consumer demand for natural soap bars," said Jeff Breazeale, president of Vanguard Soap.
Vanguard Soap utilizes only natural fats and oils in their products, offering biodegradable, earth friendly solutions that can be used safely in many applications including cosmetic and medicated soap bars. Vanguard prides itself in providing high quality, safe products. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified, holds Organic Manufacturer certification, and is an FDA-registered drug establishment.
Vanguard Soap will be in booth 1727 at HBA Global in New York City June 28 - 30. In addition to featuring the company's entire range of soap base products, representatives will be available to discuss their newest, all-natural soap base.
