You No Longer Have to Choose Between Performance and Sustainability

Neossance™ Squalane and Hemisqualane are made using sustainable, renewable sugarcane. Amyris’s fermentation platform provides an unlimited supply of rare-in-nature ingredients to meet sky-rocketing consumer demand. This means real impact for nature, the consumer and brands.

Our ingredients replace the need to harvest Squalene from millions of sharks per year or use petrochemical processes for fluid silicones. Consumers know their personal care choices have a reduced environmental impact. The fastest growing skincare brands leverage our story to deliver formulations customers love and the planet desperately needs.
