In California, Amyris’ high-performance cleaning brand, Muck Daddy , has been named the official hand cleaner of the Pirelli World Challenge (“PWC”) racing series.
Muck Daddy, developed by Amyris’s biochemists for more than decade, is based on Amyris’s proprietary Myralene 10 solvent, a revolutionary ingredient positioned to replace harsh petroleum- and limonene-based solvents. Muck Daddy’s first release, the High Performance Hand Cleaner (available with and without pumice), is USDA Certified Biobased and formulated with industrial workers’ needs and wellness in mind.
Muck Daddy’s Scrubbing Wipes can be used to clean oily, greasy dirt off hands as well as tools, parts and surfaces. Muck Daddy hand cleaners also contain Amryis’s premium skincare ingredient, Neossance® squalane, to moisturize and improve the condition of hands.
In 2016, the Pirelli World Challenge enters its 27th year of competition following its most competitive racing season in 2015 with series Drivers’ Champions representing six different manufacturers: Johnny O’Connell (Cadillac), Frankie Montecalvo (Mercedes-Benz), Colin Thompson (Porsche), Michael Cooper (Chevrolet), Corey Fergus (Porsche), Jason Wolfe (Kia) and Johan Schwartz (Chevrolet). Manufacturer titles went to Porsche (GT), Ford (GTS), Mazda (TC) and Honda (TCA).
