Advonex® International CEO to Speak at Lux Executive Summit on Ingredient Transparency and Sustainab

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Kingston, ON – Advonex® International’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chad Joshi, a seasoned C-level executive who specializes in building technology companies through collaboration and strategic partnerships, will be a featured guest speaker at the Lux Executive Summit in Boston, Massachusetts on April 4-6, 2017.

According to Markets & Markets, and the Institute for Personal Care Science, ingredient transparency and sustainability are driving the cosmetics and personal care industry. Consumers not only want to know what they are putting on and in their bodies, but are seeking safer, ethically-produced, sustainable products. For manufacturers, consumer trust and loyalty are essential to gaining and retaining market share and therefore, sustainability and transparency have become of paramount concern.

Dr. Joshi’s presentation on Wednesday, April 5 will discuss how, until now, there has been no viable alternative to petroleum-derived ingredients in the health and beauty industry. With its patented electrochemical process, Advonex can efficiently and economically produce plant-based replacements for waxes, emollients, oils and other hydrocarbons commonly used in formulating products for this industry.

“Our process technology works with common seed crops including soybean, canola, palm, coconut, corn, jatropha, carinata amongst others. It is very selective. More than 80% of the starting feedstock material ends up in the finished product and most importantly, it is cost-effective as compared to petroleum-based counterparts,” said Dr. Joshi. “No other technology has the feedstock versatility and selective capability and economics of the Advonex process.”

  1. 100% natural and plant-based;
