ALZO INTERNATIONAL MOURNS THE LOSS OF ITS LEADER

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Albert Zofchak, Founder and President of Alzo International Inc. His love and passion for science led to a long and successful 60-year career as a chemist and to establishing Alzo International in 1974. He was the inventor of many patents, and his family-owned company remains a leader in the development of specialty chemical ingredients used in cosmetic and personal care products by major marketers around the world.

Al was well known and respected by his industry peers, colleagues, and customers many of whom had come to be his friends. His passing is a tremendous loss especially for his family and employees and we will continue to work towards achieving his goal for long-term growth and prosperity for Alzo International.

His name and legacy will carry on with every product made and sold under the brand, “AL ZO”.

Polyurethane Specialties

The Polyderm Polyurethane series is based on the reaction of cosmetic polyols, esters, silicones and amines with Isophorone Diisocyanate, resulting in many unique properties including enhanced adhesion durability, film forming and thermal and chemical stability.

A range of esters, tertiary amines, silicone copolyols, polyethers and ethoxylated alcohols reacted with a IPDI diisocyanate result in unique polymers with enhanced emolliency, conditioning, film forming and rheology modifying properties.
