Eastman GEM™ technology
Eastman GEM™ technology, a biocatalytic process that uses enzymes and closely controlled manufacturing conditions to eliminate high temperatures, strong acids, and unwanted by-products and consumes less energy compared with conventional manufacturing processes. Experience the new standard of sustainable ingredient manufacturing for skin care, sunscreen, and color cosmetics applications.
Eastman GEM™ 2-ethylhexyl palmitate is a high quality ester for use in skin care, sunscreen, and color cosmetics applications. Eastman GEM™ retinyl linoleate is a high purity antiaging ingredient that increases ease of formulation and offers excellent performance. Both have the added benefit of sustainable manufacturing, guided by the U.S. EPA's Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry.
