In Cosmetics, biologically based and sustainable origin ingredients represent the global trend that is experiencing the greatest growth, and vegetable oils are a group of ingredients of this type. However, the massive use of some vegetable oils is associated with the destruction of large forest areas, which are now dedicated to monoculture.
To respond to the needs of natural oils without impact on ecosystems, Lubrizol™ offers to the cosmetic sector AlgaPur™, the High Stability High Oleic Algae Oil.
AlgaPur™ High Stability High Oleic Algae Oil is an algae oil with great benefits in the world of cosmetics, such as:
- Sensory experience: silky and non-greasy sensation, with good extensibility and providing great hydration.
- Stable to formulate: it has a stability against oxidation which is superior to the majority of plant-derived oils, with more than 90% of Omega 9 Oleic Acid. This allows prolonging the shelf life of cosmetics containing vegetable oils.
- Skin compatible formulations: AlgaPur™ is an allergen-free oil, with a low odour and a neutral colour.
- Sustainable production: it does not contain palm and its production from algae implies a low carbon footprint and minimal water consumption. The RCI according to ISO 16128 is 1.00.
AlgaPur™ High Stability High Oleic Algae Oil is a new and unique ingredient based on algae oil that offers a great versatility for its superior stability to formulators, and to consumers, for meeting the needs of sustainable products, with low carbon footprint and high performance.
