Bonsucro certification promotes ethical and sustainable sugarcane production
Aprinnova believes that creating the best ingredients starts with the best raw materials; Bonsucro is helping achieve that goal. Bonsucro is a non-profit organization that works to ensure sugarcane production, processing, and trade are all sustainable throughout the entire supply chain. For over 15 years, Bonsucro has been certifying sugarcane for its 250 members in over 50 countries. They certify 72M tons of sugarcane annually, and they comply with ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice. This level of scrutiny creates a production standard and a completely documented chain of custody. Together, this reduces greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption, while also increasing the safety for all employees in the supply chain.
Sustainability and performance via Squalane
Neossance Squalane starts out as a clean ingredient right from the sowing of the first sugarcane seed, but does it deliver sustainability and performance? Neossance Squalane has been clinically proven to improve skin with every application. It increases skin firmness and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After 28 days of a twice daily Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil regimen, women reported a smoothing effect on their fine lines and crow’s feet. Neossance Squalane also increases cell renewal by 34%, and it reduces roughness by 28%. Not only does it produce great benefits for the actual skin cells, but it is also highly supportive to the skin’s microbiome. It increases microbial diversity and maintains the stability of the microbiome. Together, this soothes irritated skin and establishes a healthy, balanced state.
The benefits of Squalane are numerous, but the combination of sustainability and efficacy of Neossance Squalane allows brands to tap into a new source of clean, conscious consumers. While consumers may know the skin benefits of Squalane, many are becoming informed about the back story of the ingredient – does it come from sharks? Increasingly environmentally conscious consumers want to know that their products are cruelty-free, that they do not harm the environment, and that they support the growers’ communities.
Neossance Squalane offers a powerfully moisturizing ingredient that is mindfully sourced from renewable sugarcane that does not require irrigation. It conforms to the ISO16128 standard of naturality, and Bonsucro certification ensures sustainability claims are traceable from the farmer to the end user. With this predictable supply chain, Neossance Squalane will always be available when needed, at a stable price. That’s the future of clean.
