ENVISIONING A CALL FROM NATURE

What’s driving us? Envisioning a call from nature is about taking ownership of our actions and providing high-performing green technologies and inspiring solutions.

Clariant Naturals provides a new platform that makes it easier for manufacturers to find the natural ingredients they need and label their products. The platform bases its definition of »natural« on ISO 16128, a straightforward, internationally agreed standard that uses the widely accepted renewable carbon index (RCI) as its main metric.

While taking this well-established ISO norm as its basic framework, Clariant goes beyond mere RCI calculation by investing in responsibly sourced solutions and developing green high-performance alternatives. They constitute the two pillars that the Naturals platform rests on: Origins and Green Performers.

The two pillars

  • Origins

    Origins combines caring for the world with providing good care for skin and hair. Explore our sustainably sourced exotic ingredients. more
