HappySoaps: Collaborating to create sustainable, plastic-free care products
Personal care and household chores products, such as hair products, soaps and detergents rely on functional ingredients to work effectively. These substances, for example to improve hair combability, are mostly produced by the petrochemical industry and create microplastics as a result. Cosun Biobased Experts is committed to replacing these products with better, plant-based alternatives. One of Biobased Experts' innovations, QUATIN®, has found its way into products in the HappySoaps brand. HappySoaps makes plastic-free and water-free cosmetics. We spoke to Sam van den Berg, Business Development Manager at Cosun Biobased Experts, and Sabine Vishnudatt, Product Developer for HappySoaps at Solid Matters B.V. about microplastics, soap bars and the collaboration between Biobased Experts and HappySoaps.
