Since a creative young Croda scientist first realised the potential for hydrolysed gelatin in personal care in the early 1970s, Croda has delivered step changes in biopolymer innovations more often than most of us have changed our hair styles. 40 years ago, Croda was the first to bring cosmetic grade proteins to the industry launching a hydrolysed gelatin powder in 1971. Since then it has pioneered a range of 'firsts'. It developed quaternised protein derivatives with the launch of Crotein Q in 1976; it was the first to produce amino acid complexes with the launch of silk and collagen amino acids in 1978; and the first to develop wheat based proteins in 1985. Recently, it has led the way in developing high performance protein copolymers.
