P2 Science Launches an Innovative Biobased Range of Pigment Dispersions

The Citrosperse™ range comprises 10 colors for use in cosmetics and personal care products.

Woodbridge, CT – November 14th, 2022. P2 Science, Inc. (P2), a green chemistry company, today announced the launch of a range of biobased and patented pigment dispersions under the tradename Citrosperse™. The line of 10 color dispersions was developed in collaboration with American Colors, Inc. of Sandusky, OH and is marketed exclusively by P2. Like other P2 products, the Citrosperse range is built on P2’s proprietary Citropol® platform. As such, its supply chain extends back to upcycled forestry by-products from Forest Stewardship Council certified pine trees.

Commercial production of Citrosperse products is already underway at the American Colors facility in Sandusky. Samples and product literature are available on P2’s website, and all Citrosperse products can be purchased directly on P2’s e-store – also on the website.

“There has been a huge need in the market for pigment dispersions that are both super-high performing and built on sustainable dispersion technology,” said Neil Burns, CEO of P2. “By working closely with our partners at American Colors, we have more than met that need. Citrosperse dispersions have very high pigment loading, remarkable color intensity and of course are built on Citropol technology that is biodegradable, biorenewable and biocompatible.”

“American Colors is excited to be reaching new markets by partnering with an award-winning, breakthrough manufacturer in the Cosmetics and Personal Care space.” Said Kayla Eyer, Business Development Director at American Colors. “ACI’s expertise in colorants and commitment to quality and service has been a great pairing with P2’s Citropol technology and market presence. We expect this to be a winning formula for years to come.”

The Citrosperse launch brings the total number of products launched by P2 to 25 since April of 2020. The Citrosperse product line is part of P2’s Plant a Forest initiative, where P2 plants a tree for every kilogram of product sold. Each tree removes about 1 ton of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during its life.
