Natura to use Solazyme microalgae oil in multiple skincare products

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL: Cosmetics and personal care products firm Natura Cosmeticos SA and Solazyme Inc said that after successfully completing testing and product validation phases over the past year using Solazyme’s oils, Natura is purchasing Solazyme’s high-performance AlgaPur microalgae oil, which will be incorporated into Natura’s multiple product lines.

The microalgae oils are produced in a matter of days using a fermentation process designed to produce oils of the highest purity, performance and sustainability, Solazyme said. “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, Solazyme Bunge renewable oils, Brazil.

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. “Solazyme microalgae oil that will compose some of our products are a sustainable alternative for new formulations development,” said Daniel Gonzaga, director, advanced research, Natura.

Solazyme produces sustainable high performance ingredients for multiple markets and its joint venture facility is located in Sao Paulo state, in partnership with Bunge.
