How to use the BASF product finder

The BASF Product Finder is an application specifically designed for finding a suitable active ingredient, not to be confused with BASF’s “Quick Finder” which only searches the Care Creations website.

With this app, BASF’s high-performance active ingredients are always right at your fingertips. The straightforward platform runs on desktop PCs, tablets as well as on smartphones. It offers a comprehensive list of active ingredients, with all the information you need on consumer benefits, eligibility for eco-labels, applications and active substances. You can also filter for detailed scientific test criteria or special features.

The app gives you direct access to innovation platforms for actives, along with detailed product information and scientific findings, as well as certificates, safety data sheets and additional downloads.

One of the best parts is that to use the search functions of the BCS Product Finder, no specific access rights are required! To use the BASF product finder follow the steps below.
