All-nutrient is the first haircolor in the world to contain Zemea propandiol, a 100% vegetable-derived compound used to replace petroleum-derived materials. Devoted to the research and production of sustainable, all-natural products, it’s no surprise all-nutrient is the first to utilize this revolutionary ingredient of natural origin.

“We are thrilled to use Zemea propandiol in our haircolor,” says Chuck Frank, Founder and enthused Chemist of all-nutrient hair care. “this renewably sourced, pure form of 1,3-propandiol reduces the world’s reliance on petroleum-based chemicals. Even more, it’s performance is far more superior to its harmful oil-derived alternatives, like propylene glycol (1, 2-propanediol), butylene glycol (1, 3-butanediol) or glycerin, that are used in most haircolor brands. Because of its all-natural properties, we are able to offer a haircolor that prevents skin irritation or sensitization, improves moisturization, and keeps the hair healthy.”

Zemea prpandiol, a 100% corn-derived compound, is the 100% natural and petroleum-free glycol alternative for cosmetics and personal care market. Approved by Ecocert and certified by the Natural Products Association (NPA), Zemea is an accredited certified organic ingredient. Produced at DuPont Tate & BioProduct’s manufacturing plant in Tennessee, Zemea is free of GMO, testing negative for the presence of genetically modified corn traits and genetic material from the fermentation-based process.

Like DuPont, all-nutrient is continuously broadening its sustainability commitments. The production of this earth-friendly compound consumes 40% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emission by 20% when compared to oil-derived propanediol (used in most hair color). Zemea is also certified as readily biodegradable based on an Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Guideline Test for Biodegradation.

Chuck concludes, “this bio-based ingredients gives our company the ability to replace petroleum-derived materials with high-performance, biodegradable solutions that not only significantly reduce the environmental impact of our products, but ensure our customers are using the finest and healthiest hair color in the industry.”
