AstaTROL ® HP obtained from micro algae haematococcus pluvialis distinguishes itself by its high antioxidative potential:

• 550 times greater singlet oxygen quenching ability compared to alpha-tocopherol

• 10 times more effective than beta-carotene and lutein

Astaxanthin is suitable for anti-aging products as it adheres free radicals. It disposes these free radicals and can affect the

aging process and stop wrinkles. This effect of the natural „wonder weapon“ is 550 times greater than the effect caused

by Vitamin E and 40 times more striking than β-carotene.

Astaxanthin improves also the elasticity of the skin and its amount of moisture. Beyond this the orange-red pigment is also

convincing by its light-protecting qualities. It prevents sunburn and works inflammation restraining against damages which

have been caused by solar irradiaton. In comparison to other carotinoids or Vitamin C, Astaxanthin has the unique ability

to protect cell membranes from the inside to outside.

PHYTOPOLYAMINE-S – Soybean Germ Extract

Eye care


Gel Mask

This extract is a polyamine-rich botanical from soybean germ by using a special aqueous extraction technology.

Polyamines are small molecules, exist in all organisms, and are known as physiologically active substances. Their stress

resistant effects toward temperatures, drying and active oxygen have been revealed through botanical researches. It has

been found that lives of cut rose flower are extended by the treatment of polyamines. Polyamine amounts in human body

decrease by aging, and thus polyamines are recognized as anti-aging substances. Polyamines exist in human skin and seem

to protect from UV-aging. The polyamine-rich extract is expected as an anti-aging ingredient.

Property & Advantages

• Activation of fibroplasts

• Promoting collagen production

• Antioxidant action

• Protection from external stress

Tocotrienol is 60 times more effective than other forms of Vitamin E and assures a better skin penetration.

Tocotrienol provides photo-protection for hair by scavenging free radicals that cause poor hair condition via oxidative damage,

particularly after sun exposure. This helps to maintain the health and cosmetic value of the hair shaft.

Topically applied anti-oxidants have been shown to reduce the sunburn reaction and reduce skin damage by limiting UV

ray damage to the epidermal layers. With their well-documented antioxidant activities, Tocotrienol thus has the potential

to serve as a key ingredient in high SPF sunscreen products.

Topically application of Tocotrienol on the skin may also reduce water loss through the epidermis, maintain the skin

barrier‘s lipid balance and strengthen the skin‘s barrier function. Application of a Tocotrienol-rich-moisturizer has also

recorded lower transepidermal water loss rates in skin barrier function test.

Cellogen ® – CMC

Cellogen ® (Sodium Carboxy Methylcellulose) is a water soluble cellulose ether with manifold applications in a variety of

industries. The compound is physiologically inert, forms strong transparent films, has favorable rheological features and is

soluble in cold and hot water.

For skin care products and hair care products

Cellogen ® is suited for hair care products and styling products. It creates a creamy character in shampoo and generates

a stable foam. In dyestuff for hair it improves the dispersibility and thickens the base components. In addition Cellogen ®

provides for the fact that hand cremes, bodylotions and shower gels feel pleasant, are good spreadable and not sticky.

For the dental hygiene

In oral care products Cellogen ® is an important component. Cellogen ® thickens, stabilizes, emulsifies, forms films and

binds water. With it the cellulose provides for the right creaminess in toothpaste, ointments or balm. The different Cellogen

® types optimize the viscosity and elasticity of your products and help to develop the „comfortable touch“ for your

Our D-Limonene 99 % makes a clear and reliable difference among other citrus terpenes imported from other countries


D-Limonene, up to more than 99 % purity, contains a very low level of peroxides. Furthermore, the method of extraction

of D-Limonene by other producers, using alkalis and high temperature concentration, is more abrasive and aggressive with

the raw material, resulting a product not suitable for food applications, cosmetics, soaps and detergents, etc. Our supplier

is using „Steam Stripping” process of extraction, undoubtedly the best-performing and less harmful to the natural raw

material from which we obtain our D-Limonene 99 %.
