THE COSMETICS INDUSTRY
The global awareness surrounding environmental pollution by plastics as well as new consumer expectations for naturally derived products have generated a growing demand from the cosmetics industry for natural polymers.
Consumer expectations have also increased regarding the local and sustainable sourcing of ingredients. Located 20 km from the sea, Algaia processes seaweed harvested in a sustainable way from the Mer d’Iroise in Brittany, France. This location allows for a regular supply of fresh seaweed with a minimal environmental impact.
One of the major challenges is to combine the naturalness of ingredients while maintaining the sensorial properties expected by consumers.
In this ongoing search for innovative natural textures, Algaia’s scientific expertise in biopolymers makes it a partner of choice for developing tomorrow’s natural cosmetics.
