Natura to use Solazyme’s microalgae oil in future cosmetic lines

Brazilian cosmetics giant Natura has signed an agreement to purchase Solazyme’s high-performance AlgaPūr Microalgae Oil, which will be incorporated into Natura’s multiple product lines.

Solazyme’s microalgae oils are produced using a fermentation process designed to produce oils of the highest purity, performance and sustainability. According to the ingredients supplier, some of the benefits of using AlgaPūr oils for skin care are higher hydration levels, a silky but not greasy skin feel, mildness on the skin, neutral colour and odour, and improved shelf life.

We believe high performance and sustainability belong together. Natura is a leader in innovation and globally recognized for their sustainability efforts. We are very happy to work together to deliver better products for consumers and for our planet,” said Walfredo Linhares, General Manager of Solazyme Bunge Renewable Oils in Brazil.

The agreement between the two companies was signed after the successful completion of testing and product validation phases over the past year using. The amount of the transactions was not disclosed.

Natura and Solazyme have been working together for two years on several projects on joint efforts to develop new formulations with Solazyme’s microalgae oils. “We are always looking for ingredients from renewable sources and technologies inspired in the nature, targeting low environmental impact processes and high performance solutions”, says Daniel Gonzaga, Director of Advanced Research of Natura. “Solazyme microalgae oil that will compose some of our products are a sustainable alternative for new formulations development”, he concludes.
