June 15th, 2017 – Warwick, RI –  We are pleased to announce that Desert King International and Dewolf Chemical have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement to sell the Yucca and Quillaja saponin products in the North East and the Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, effective June 15th 2017.

Desert King International has been producing cosmetic grade saponins since 1978. They are the largest manufacturer of Yucca and Quillaja, and the only company basic in both products. Dessert King has manufacturing facilities in Baja California, Mexico (Yucca schidigera) and in Chile (Quillaja saponaria).

Desert King’s decision to partner with DeWolf was driven by their desire to drive their ingredient innovations through DeWolf’s science-based and consultative approach. “We are excited to partner with DeWolf to expand the use of Quillaja and Yucca into beauty care applications. With their support we will not only broaden our presence in the USA, but our customers will also benefit from DeWolf’s expertise in formulation development.” said Paul Hiley – President of Desert King International.
