Creating the Future of Personal Care Ingredients

Vegetable oils from sustainably sourced palm, sunflower or rapeseed are the source of a variety of highly useful lipids and acids, which can be transformed into safe, sustainable personal care ingredients given the right mindset and the tenacity needed in long, deliberate research efforts.

At Palsgaard, we have fine-tuned this skillset over a century of pioneering work, primarily in the global food industry. Today, we apply the same knowledge and innovative spirit to develop plant-based functional solutions for the personal care ingredient sector, marketed under the name Einar®.
