Texapon SFA is a very mild and innovative surfactant based on sustainable, RSPO-certified renewable resources. It is used in the manufacture of tear-free baby shampoos. Dehyton SFA is a blend of Texapon SFA and betadine. It is very gentle on the skin and can be used to make micellar thickening agents in formulas. In October 2019, the company increased its production capacity for Alkyl Polyglucosides (APG) in Jinshan, China by an additional 10,000 metric tons. APGs are non-ionic surfactants and are manufactured from 100% natural and renewable feedstocks. They are used in personal care applications.
Nouryon focusses on expansions, new product launches, and agreement to meet the growing demand for surfactants. In October 2019, the company opened a new plant in Stenungsund, Sweden, to produce ethylene amines and their derivatives. The technology is based on ethylene oxide (EO). The expansion enabled Nouryon to expand its ethylene amine capacity, an important raw material in the production of surfactants. In October 2019, the company launched WITBREAK NEO, a range of sustainable demulsifiers to separate crude oil from natural gas and water. In June 2019, Nouryon launched Agrilan 1028, a surfactant for the agricultural market that helps fertilizer and crop protection products to be combined in a single mix.

In March 2020, the company acquired biotechnology company Innovative Health Group based in Madrid, Spain. innoHealths technology platforms screen and combine natural ingredients and extracts to generate novel dermocosmetic products with synergistic activities. In December 2019, the company entered into a partnership with Unilever to launch a biosurfactant, Rhamnolipi. Rhamnolipid is 100% renewable and biodegradable in nature. It is also ultra-mild on the skin, which sets it apart from other surfactants. In September 2019, the company expanded its production capacity for the high-purity C13 alcohol isotridecanol (ITDA). This high purity alcohol is used in the production of surfactants. In April 2019, the company launched REWOFERM SL ONE, its first biosurfactant and Tomamine Amphoteric coupling agents.
