The tradition of applying oils to provide nourishment and shine to both hair and scalp is still present in women’s beauty routine. Natural oils have been traditionally obtained via cold process methods. However, they can also be obtained through biotechnology thanks to fermentation with algae. Algae can be found in environments other than water, such as plants
AlgaPur™ High Stability High Oleic (HSHO) algae oil (INCI name: Triolein)

An oil derived from microalgae that was originally sourced from the sap of a chestnut tree. Under the right conditions, these microalgae will convert sugars into triglyceride oils, resulting in highly stable bio-based oil with a low environmental footprint. Containing over 90% of beneficial Omega-9 (oleic acid), it helps protect and strengthen the hair fiber, provides shine, controls frizz, and improves hair manageability while hydrating and keeping the scalp young for holistic hair care.
