Englewood, Co – Feb 4, 2021
Innospec has been awarded by Henkel as the Best Innovation Contributor Beauty Care 2020 because of the company’s outstanding and creative support in enabling Henkel to launch a shampoo powder formula in record time with its Pureact surfactant technology. Innospec’s Pureact line is a versatile range of mild, sulfate-free surfactants which deliver high foaming properties in liquid and solid hair and body care formulations.
Bruce McDonald, President of Innospec Performance Chemicals, said:
“We are honoured to receive these two prestigious awards from Henkel, a key partner and one of the global beauty and home care leaders. These awards highlight our ongoing commitment to best-in-class innovation and customer support. Our combination of specialized technology and responsive service enables our customers to continually formulate products which meet their performance and sustainability goals.”
Innospec is also proud to be recognised by Henkel with 2nd Best Supply Performance Award 2020, for its support in prioritizing Henkel and securing supply of raw materials for their toilet rim blocks during critical changeover situation, and the excellent operational performance and best in class service levels.
Several challenges and obstacles have occurred during the pandemic, particularly over the first lock down. Through excellent commitment and internal communication between our teams in manufacturing, planning, logistics and supply chain based in Ellesmere Port and Italy we were able to prioritise Henkel and find solutions to continue deliveries of our material without disruption of their production.
“I am very proud that Innospec has won these two awards for our innovation and supply performance in 2021 and would like to thank all of my Innospec colleagues involved in the Henkel business. Over a number of years our relationship with Henkel has developed and strengthened and we look forward to continuing our mutual success in the future.” said Mike McDonough, Key Account Manager.
“Throughout the pandemic it has been key for us to maintain the excellent level of operational and supply support that our customers expect, while ensuring the health and safety of our employees. We are proud to see that our efforts during 2020 have been recognised with these notable awards from Henkel.” added William Mounsey, Global Commercial Director of Performance Chemicals
