A world leader in sustainable manufacturing and specialty chemicals

We are the leading manufacturer of sugarcane-derived ingredients, Squalane and Hemisqualane, now paving the way for clean and non-toxic cosmetics around the globe. As a joint venture between Amyris Inc. and Nikkol Group, Aprinnova leverages cutting edge biotechnology manufacturing capability and 70 years of cosmetic industry expertise to deliver a new standard that makes sustainability a competitive advantage. We also lead #TheFutureOfClean movement to support a global standard for clean beauty and provide expert analysis and news for top brands, thought leaders, and consumers.


Deliver World-Class, Nontoxic Cosmetic Ingredients Using Sustainable Technology

We manufacture ingredients, such as Squalane, using Amyris’ patented technology to convert renewable sugarcane into farnesene and other tailored molecules, producing a range of rare-in-nature, high value, pure, and stable products for our customers using these key steps:

  • Sugarcane juice extraction

  • Fermentation

  • Separation

  • Distillation


From Fighting Malaria to Making Cosmetics Sustainable

The Amyris technology we use to create cosmetic ingredients started as an effort with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to make anti-malarial drugs more affordable. The result? Over 1 million treatments have been delivered. Today, Aprinnova utilizes this platform to deliver high quality Squalane and Hemisqualane on a mass scale, the top emollient and liquid silicone alternatives available today.


Our Global Network Meets Regional Market Demands

We partner with distributors in every region servicing hundreds of brands using Neossance™ Squalane and Hemisqualane to power clean beauty formulations from skin care to hair care to baby care.


Sustainability is Our Core Principle, No compromise™

We believe R&D leaders, cosmetic chemists, and end consumers deserve access to exceptional products that are pure, consistent and in unlimited supply. Responsible brands shouldn’t have to risk brand equity, formulation quality, or stable supply chains to deliver what consumers demand: naturally-derived, sustainable products. Neossance™ Squalane and Hemisqualane ingredients are better for people, better for business, and better for the planet.

You No Longer Have to Choose Between Performance and Sustainability

Our team works with formulators and R&D leaders throughout the year to meet technical needs and requirements using our Squalane and Hemisqualane.
