About us

AAK Personal Care

Since 1989, we have been driving positive change in perceptions of natural emollients, opening new opportunities for use across cosmetic applications and making better happen in beauty.

Today, we are one of the world's leading suppliers of sustainably sourced, technologically advanced plant-based ingredients for the beauty and personal care industry. Distinct from synthetic, animal or fossil-based raw materials, our plant-based ingredients are primarily used for skin care but are also suitable for hair care, color cosmetics, personal care products and specialist ranges, such as baby care.

Our range of solutions delivers on sustainability and enables the development of high-performance beauty products. We serve all customer categories, from local niche start-ups to multinational brand leaders.
