Sustainability: Reducing Product Life Cycle Environmental Impact

Posted by Elena Cañadas on 03/23/2021

Interest in sustainable beauty continues to grow as a consumer priority around the world, with the pandemic adding additional focus, according to the Mintel article, “Sustainable Skincare in 2021 and Beyond.”

As a result, to be successful, new beauty products need to minimize environmental impact and, when possible, include renewable ingredients from nature.

With products that are derived from nature, have reduced environmental impact and are third-party certified, Lubrizol is the supplier of choice for innovation that is grounded in responsible science and delivers excellent performance.

For example, our AlgaPūr™ High Stability High Oleic (HSHO) algae oil is a bio-based oil derived from microalgae originally sourced from chestnut tree sap. It has a high sustainability profile and proven efficacy, delivering multiple benefits for hair, scalp and sun care. It is a natural ingredient produced through fermentation, is readily biodegradable, and has a low environmental footprint for water, carbon, and land use.

And our Sunhancer™ Eco SPF booster is a naturally-derived technology that increases SPF and is compatible with both organic and inorganic sunscreen actives. It is non-nano, inherently biodegradable and non-persistent in the environment. That means you’re now able to reduce the quantity of UV filters in your formulation and potentially lower environmental impact while maintaining protection from the sun.

These are only a couple of examples from our extensive portfolio of nature derived ingredients that can meet consumer demand for sustainable beauty products.
