About Omya Kinetik

Welcome! We’re Omya Kinetik, a dynamic and customer-focused distributor of high-quality specialty ingredients from around the globe, serving the personal care and cosmetic markets.

Kinetik was founded in 2003 by Christopher Johnson, an individual with a passion for innovation. Strategically located in the Eastern US, Kinetik became part of the Omya family of companies in 2019. Founded in 1884, Omya is a leading global producer of calcium carbonate and a worldwide distributor of specialty chemicals, with over 175 locations worldwide.

With Omya’s acquisition of Kinetik, a new division – now known as Omya Kinetik – allows the two previously independent teams to combine and become a true force in Consumer Goods Distribution, offering class-leading product innovation, formulation support and customer service. This merger extends Omya’s footprint nationwide, with centers of excellence in Long Beach, CA, Cincinnati, OH and Hazlet, NJ.  The synergies created by the Omya Kinetik brand not only enhance our distribution portfolio, but optimize our sales and technical capabilities to the benefit of current and future customers, as well as our international supplier partners.

Let Omya Kinetik be your partner in personal care.
