Coast Southwest Signs U.S. Marketing and Distribution Agreement with International Lubricants for GlossamerTM L6600

Coast Southwest continues to respond to industry call for bio-based ingredients.


Coast Southwest, Inc., an industry leader in the marketing, sales, and distribution of personal care ingredient technology, announces an agreement with International Lubricants of Seattle, WA to manage the sales, marketing, order fulfillment, and technical support for Glossamer™ L6600 Natural Polymer. This agreement covers  the personal care market in the United States effective immediately.

Glossamer™ L6600 is a unique biodegradable and bio-based polymer derived from Tung (China wood) and rapeseed oils.  It is produced by the copolymerization of these purified vegetable oils. With Glossamer™, International Lubricants has created a natural, environmentally friendly personal care polymer with unparalleled performance and wide formulation flexibility. The moisturizing, conditioning, and high solvency properties of the natural oils are maintained while copolymerization builds molecular weight and viscosity. Film-forming features impart benefits, including gloss and water- and wear- resistance, delivering truly multi-functional performance. Formulators can claim environmental- and consumer-friendly positions due to Glossamer’s natural basis, non-animal character, purity, and biodegradability. Learn more
