October 15, 2021

Effective October 15th 2021, Cirebelle has appointed Barentz as its key North American channel to market and distribute Cirebelle’s sustainable ingredients in Personal Care. Barentz Personal Care, one of leading global specialty distributors, brings some of the best customer service and solutions offerings in the industry and is ready to serve as an authorized channel for Cirebelle’s sustainable ingredients across the U.S. and Canada.

Cirebelle offers a unique range of sustainable waxes allowing our customers to design unique solutions:

Cirebelle’s effective Exfoliating Spheres, available in wide range of vibrant colors, are smooth, perfectly spherical exfoliators that guarantee gentle exfoliation whenever they are used.
Cirebelle’s SoftSpheres are advanced, self-hydrating wax spheres capable of encapsulating oils, extracts and active ingredients inside a wax matrix. When part of a hydrous formulation, they are designed to cure and soften enough to smear onto the skin with ease, releasing the encapsulated contents.

"The addition of Cirebelle’s Exfoliating Spheres and SoftSpheres complements perfectly our current Personal Care product range in North America, allowing us to offer our customers a broader portfolio.
