News & Announcements
Tribute to Dr. Jack Guth
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Jack Guth on Thursday November 28th, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Jack proudly served as Botaneco's Vice President of R&D for the past 7 years, and is credited with developing the Oleosome technology in the Personal Care industry. Jack was an inspiration to everyone he met, and was well recognized in the industry for his deep knowledge of Chemistry and Formulations. Having begun his career on the Finished Goods side of Personal Care (Johnson and Johnson) and later switching to the Supplier side (Lonza, Inolex and Botaneco), there were very few people in the world that understood the industry from all aspects, including ingredient development, production, research and marketing. Jack's legacy will be carried forward by the current Botaneco team as we continue to innovate on the Oleosome technology and accelerate its applications in Personal Care and beyond.
