We provide chemicals that are used in products ranging from facial creams, soap, and cosmetics, to food products and over-the-counter medicine, to industrial and automotive lubricants. Our primary market is personal care. From specialty chemicals to commodities, Coast’s product lines of surfactants, silicones, and personal care specialties are the broadest in the business. We are constantly looking for innovative technologies and ingredients that can benefit our customers.

With an integrated distribution network of regional offices and distribution centers in California, Texas, Utah, Arizona, and New Jersey, Coast Southwest locations are strategically positioned to reach the diverse geographic markets we serve. It’s our job to make sure our customers don’t run out of the chemicals they need. That’s why we carry our own inventory, manage our own warehouses, and can usually deliver chemicals in two days or less.

We take our commitment to quality seriously, from the chemicals we supply to subscribing to the rigorous standards of safety and responsibility set forth by the National Association of Chemical Distributors Responsible Distribution Process.

Everything we accomplish is because of the talent, experience, and dedication of our people. Whether they are providing a customer quote for a commodity, suggesting the right specialty ingredient for a new formulation, or delivering a critical shipment of chemicals, our employees are resourceful, energetic, and committed to serving our customers’ needs.

Our Vision

To be the preeminent chemical distributor and manufacturer for the personal care market and other formulating industries.

Responsible Distribution

We subscribe to the letter and intent of the rigorous standards of responsibility and safety set forth by the National Association of Chemical Distributor’s Responsible Distribution Program.
