About

Small Company. Global Impact.

Applechem was founded in 2003 by Dr. Samuel Lin in a tiny laboratory within the Enterprise Development Center (EDC) of the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

As one of the state’s largest technology incubation centers, the EDC provides an environment where the state and federal government, universities, and investors collaborate with entrepreneurs to create young and dynamic technology companies. Here is where Applechem embarked on its critical years of research and development.

With the vision of becoming a pioneering cosmetic technology company, Applechem began developing cutting-edge functional materials to unlock new possibilities for cosmetic formulators.

By 2006, Applechem was put on the map with its first-generation G-Block product, used today in sunscreen products produced by both local brands and global manufacturers.  

In 2016, after experiencing continuous growth, Applechem moved to a larger, more expansive facility in Parsippany, New Jersey.

Our Promise as We Grow

Even after we transitioned from a tiny tech startup to a stable, dependable supplier, we've never forgotten our roots as a small, spirited business with big ideas.

We recognize that every personal connection should be valued and validated with responsive customer service coupled with strong technical aptitude.   

Moreover, we promise to continue expanding the range of possibilities in the formulation space, whether that means creating functionality where none existed before or putting an improved spin on traditional ingredient technologies.
