Pulcra Chemicals acquires Skintex business from BASF
Jul '13
Pulcra Chemicals group has acquired the Skintex business from BASF.  The Skintex range was originally developed by scientists from the Henkel & Cognis textile department over ten years ago. 

During the creation of the Fashion / Pulcra Chemicals group the Skintex range remained with Cognis, which was then acquired by BASF SE in 2010.  The acquisition brings the Skintex business back into the group where it was created.

“Performance finishes for textiles has been a target growth area for our business and the Skintex portfolio of products increases the offerings available to our customers,” says Brian Francois, President of Pulcra Chemicals LLC.  “We are excited to have the Skintex business back and we look forward to working with many of the global brands that have adopted the technology.”
