Personal Care, Soaps, and Medical Materials

This broad category spans a wide spectrum from certain commodity chemicals for soaps (like caustic soda), to specialty polymers, oils, surfactants, and fragrances for personal care products, through complex biomaterials for medical device applications. The commonality is human contact with the final product. The higher-volume applications generally still have relatively high margins due to high switching costs in the final formulation. However, the margins on specialty personal care additives can be very high, and those of biopolymers for medical device applications are truly outstanding.
