BASF and Mazza Innovation jointly explore new possibilities of plant-derived active ingredients for the cosmetics industry, extracted with the eco-friendly, water-based PhytoClean technology.

LYON, FRANCE/DELTA, CANADA: BASF SE and Mazza Innovation has signed an exclusive, long-term supply agreement. The Canadian botanical extractions company will provide BASF with specific plant extracts to develop new solutions for cosmetic applications. Mazza produces the plant extracts using its patented PhytoClean technology. This unique, water-based extraction method concentrates bio-actives in a very eco-friendly way.

With this collaboration, BASF will further strengthen its innovative range of plant-derived active ingredients. New extraction processes are an important means of exploring novel high-performance plant-based solutions in areas such as anti-ageing actives, facilitated by bringing together interdisciplinary know-how from within BASF as well as from external partners.

“For more than 50 years, our scientific experts have been working at the forefront of plant extraction technologies, constantly assessing new developments in this field, with the aim of improving both the sustainability of the process and the precision of the extraction, targeting key molecules at the heart of plant materials. The partnership with Mazza enables us to further expand our range of innovative active ingredients and to continuously support our customers to meet the growing consumer demand for effective and naturally-derived products,” said David Herault, director of research & development at BASF beauty creations.

“The PhytoClean Method is an environmentally sound way to produce standardized bio-active ingredients from plant biomass. By changing the polarity of water using temperature and pressure, the PhytoClean method avoids the use of conventional extraction solvents. We gain access to such phytochemicals as phenolic compounds, polysaccharides and glycosides – all of which contribute to the biological activity of the plant extract,” added Benjamin Lightburn, CEO of Mazza Innovation.
