Amyris’ Neossance Squalane is a plant derived sustainable alternatives for petroleum- and chemically-derived emollients in personal care products

Neossance Hemisqualane is an innovative light emollient with high spreadability that is ideal for natural cosmetic formulations. It is the perfect replacement for petroleum-derived paraffins and silicone ingredients. Amyris’s Neossance Squalane is a plant derived fully saturated, non-polar hydrocarbon with high moisturizing properties and ability to penetrate the skin. Both products are sustainable alternatives for petroleum- and chemically-derived products in personal care products. In addition, Neossance emollients are biodegradable, ECOCERT-approved and USDA Certified 100% Biobased.

"We’re pleased to announce this important agreement, which brings together the high quality and performance of Amyris’s personal care products and the broad distribution experience of Dinaco in the Brazilian market," said Caroline Hadfield, Senior Vice President, Personal Care, of Amyris. "The growing market for renewably-sourced personal care products poses a unique opportunity for Amyris to showcase its expertise in creating sustainable high-performance products that have proven performance."
