UNIONTOWN, OH— Monday, March 4, 2019 - Aqdot is expanding its global network with the appointment of ChemSpec’s Cosmetics Division as its US East Coast distributor for the innovative emulsifier AqStar™ M1.
AqStar M1 is a high-performing, naturally-derived emulsifier with the formulation flexibility to create a wide variety of natural skin care formulations with distinctive aesthetics. A naturally-derived alternative to synthetic emulsifiers, AqStar M1 is ISO 16128, non-genetically modified, and 90% plant-based.

Ohio-based ChemSpec distributes specialty ingredients into the North American cosmetics market.
Tim Wright, CEO of Aqdot, said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with ChemSpec. Its experience in the sector and knowledge of the US cosmetics sector will be invaluable as we further expand the global reach of AqStar M1.”
ChemSpec’s Cosmetics Sales & Marketing Director, Marie Great, said: “AqStar M1 is a great, green ingredient addition to our cosmetics portfolio.”
