Biosynthetic Technologies (BT) manufactures a revolutionary new class of biobased synthetic molecules that are made from organic fatty acids found in plant oils. These highly-functional “biosynthetic” oils have numerous uses in the lubricant, chemical, and cosmetics industries, often outperforming their petroleum counterparts in similar applications. In addition to their high-performance properties, these renewable oils are biodegradable and nontoxic. Finally, BT holds a broad portfolio of issued and pending patents protecting these novel biosynthetic oils.

BT currently offers two product lines:

Biosynthetic™ Base Oils are used in passenger car motor oils (PCMO) and numerous other commercial and industrial lubricant products.  After extensive testing, several of the world’s largest manufacturers of automotive and industrial lubricants are now formulating and certifying finished products containing these biosynthetic oils.

CocoEstolide™ esters are new plant-based emollients that combine high stability and exceptional moisturization characteristics. They impart a light satiny feel, excellent absorption, and superior functionality as an emollient. CocoEstolide esters also exhibit excellent oxidative and hydrolytic stability, which helps to provide an extended shelf life when compared to natural plant-based oils.
