Honeywell has named Maroon Group, a Barentz Company, as a key North American channel to market and distribute Honeywell's Earth-friendly Solstice® ingredients in Personal Care and Pharmaceuticals. Maroon Group, recently acquired by Barentz International BV to become a leading global life science ingredient and specialty chemical distributors, brings some of the best customer service and solutions offerings in the industry and is ready to serve as an authorized channel for Honeywell's Earth-friendly Solstice® ingredients across the U.S. and Canada.

The Earth-friendly Solstice® ingredients allow our customers not only to stay ahead of changing environmental regulations, but also to provide breakthrough formulating advantages for face, body, hair, and sun care products.

Solstice® Enhance is the perfect alternative to Flammable, VOC solvents and Carrier fluids enabling superb cooling, fast drying, and unique foaming action.
Solstice® Propellant helps creating creamy, shiny, and easy to spread foam in aerosol-based products.
