The Zschimmer & Schwarz portfolio combines the high-performance polymers of its SYNTRAN® line with the first-class emollients of its ZETEMOL line to create perfect make-up formulations. ZETEMOL products consist mostly of ingredients derived from vegetable and other sustainable oils which create a velvety skin feel and thus allow for advanced make-up formulation.


Zschimmer & Schwarz produces a wide range of performance and functional ingredients, from the high-quality ZETEMOL emollients to the sophisticated emulsifiers of the SEBUMOL (W/O) and PROTELAN (O/W) product lines.
Selecting the right ingredients is the key to creating the desired features of a cosmetic product. The skin care portfolio of Zschimmer & Schwarz offers product developers a comprehensive range of ingredients from high-performance emulsifiers to top-quality emollients which give a pleasant touch and provide the required texture to the cosmetic formulations.


For daily beauty care, Zschimmer & Schwarz provides ingredients to formulate luxury and premium products. With our focus on multifunctionality, efficiency and environmental friendliness, we develop tailor-made specialities to meet ever-changing market requirements. Among others, our product portfolio includes mild surfactants, special ingredients for bath and shower oil formulas and syndet bars.


Zschimmer & Schwarz develops surfactants which are the basic components of high-quality rinse-off formulations, such as anionic and amphoteric primary surfactants. These products optimise foaming ability, viscosity building and mildness to hair and skin in formulated personal care products.
