AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil

Cleansing Hair-Care Skin-Care
China Compliant -Formerly CFDA Halal Microbiome Friendly

A stable and luxurious liquid bio-based oil, created by the transformative powers of microalgae

AlgaPūr™ High Stability High Oleic (HSHO) algae oil is one of the most stable liquid bio-based oils on the market, delivering versatility in eco-friendly formulations for skin and hair care. During a controlled manufacturing process, the algae efficiently convert simple sugars into triglyceride oils. This process takes place far from fragile ecosystems, resulting in minimal environmental impact while ensuring rapid scalability and reproducibility. AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil is a natural ingredient (according to ISO 16128), readily biodegradable, palm-free, suitable for halal and vegan formulations and is fully traceable. It can be combined with or replace typical vegetable oils — and, in some instances, mineral oil. This novel ingredient won the 2021 BSB Innovation Award: 3rd prize, Natural Products category (Hair Care)
