GELEEN, the Netherlands - Reverdia has been awarded halal and kosher certifications for its Biosuccinium® S grade of bio-succinic acid. The specialty grade, which is registered under the ECOCERT Natural and Organic Cosmetics Standard as 100% natural origin, is designed for markets that require high quality and purity.

Biosuccinium S is an active ingredient for health and beauty products. Its derivatives can be used in a wide variety of markets. Consumer applications down the value chain include personal care and pharmaceuticals through to food and flavors. Reverdia’s new certifications mean that it can now offer its global supply for the growing halal and kosher consumer segments.

“Our customers require that we meet halal and kosher standards so that they can reach additional markets, unlocking new regions and applications,” said Marcel Lubben, President of Reverdia. “These regulated markets are increasingly important drivers for sectors other than food, such as pharmaceuticals, oral care and cosmetics. We are happy to announce that our Biosuccinium S grade, which is fully renewable and made from 100% natural resources, is now available to our clients in these important sectors.”

The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America granted kosher certification to Reverdia’s Biosuccinium S, produced in its Cassano production plant in Italy. The halal certification has been approved by the Halal Correct Certification Foundation based in Leiden, the Netherlands.
