Deliver World-Class, Nontoxic Cosmetic Ingredients Using Sustainable Technology

We manufacture ingredients, such as Neossance Squalane and Hemisqualane, using Amyris’ patented sugarcane fermentation platform to convert sugarcane into high performance, pure, and sustainable ingredients that are always available. Our process involves 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 — the top emollient and liquid silicone alternatives available today — en masse.


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. High Performance — 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.

Choose Both Performance and Sustainability

Aprinnova helps beauty brands transition to superior-performing ingredients that are safer for consumers, sustainable, and ethically sourced. Patented sugarcane bio-fermentation powers our innovative ingredients.

We designed our bio-fermentation with sustainability in mind. Our supply chain is certified sustainable and ethical by Bonsucro, a World Wildlife Fund-founded NGO.

Together, we can make a planet-positive difference with Neossance Squalane and Hemisqualane.
