Product Highlight: Floratech’s Floraesters Range



We are delighted to highlight to you Floratech’s Floraesters range.  

Floraesters are unique emollients derived from jojoba, a resilient, sustainable desert plant containing unique lipids with superior emolliency. Jojoba is nature’s only botanical source of liquid wax esters. Floraesters combine nature and innovation, providing hydration, strength and protection benefits to enhance cosmetic and personal care products. 

Floratech started with a small jojoba mill in the Arizona desert, where the jojoba plant is indigenous and traditionally used. Over forty years, Floratech has grown into a modern research and manufacturing centre, creating nature-derived ingredients for personal care products. A new chapter in the Floratech story began in December 2020 when they became a Cargill company complementing Cargill’s existing natural products portfolio.
