Upcycling: A key trend within the Personal Care Industry



ProTec Ingredia, along with our partner Micro Powders, firmly believe that we should give our utmost to ensure that nothing is wasted when making personal care products. 

With that in mind, we wanted to highlight how Micro Powders use upcycling in the manufacture of their ingredients. Upcycling has quickly become a key trend within the personal care industry; it’s the process in which by-products or waste materials are used to create a useable end product.
