Primient Debuts at NYSCC Suppliers’ Day 2022 as a Leading Producer of Personal Care Products

03 May 2022

New York City– (May 3, 2022) – Primient makes its debut at this year’s New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) Suppliers’ Day at the Javits Center, May 3 - 4, 2022. (Booth #1603). The company enters the personal care industry with a strong portfolio of proven products and trusted application expertise, including bio-based solutions which provide premium thickening, gelling, and emulsion functionality across a wide range of personal care applications.


Primient was established as the result of Tate & Lyle PLC (“Tate & Lyle”) selling a controlling stake in its Primary Products business in North America and Latin America to KPS Capital Partners, LP (“KPS”). The new privately held company is majority-owned and controlled by KPS, while Tate & Lyle retains a minority stake. 


As personal care shifts into more bio-based and sustainable materials, Primient is uniquely positioned to offer superior solutions for these needs.


“We offer an exceptional range of bio-based, high-performance ingredients which are exactly on trend with consumer demand,” Primient General Manager, Industrial Starches, Greg Wenndt said. “We are excited to showcase our Texutrlux® line of products and expertise for the first time as Priment at NYSCC this year."


The Primient portfolio includes a range of personal care additive products designed to give formulators a variety of bio-based options.


  • Haircare - Bio-alternatives are becoming the standard for consumers as they seek natural texture and essence. Primient offers bio-based solutions that increase foam stability and aesthetics.
  • Skincare - As formulators look to increase the bio-content of their formulations without jeopardizing function, look, and feel, Primient offers thickeners and emulsifiers that are a perfect fit. In addition, our products are cold processable, simplifying formulation.
  • Suncare - Primient offers solutions that maintain both excellent aesthetics, superb rheology, and enhanced water resistance.


Primient employs more than 1,500 colleagues and operates six industrial plants in North America and Latin America and has an interest in two joint ventures.
