Our proprietary microalgal skin care ingredient, AstaFusion™, has been registered with the American Chemical Society and received its CAS Registry Number 1174756-78-5. AstaFusion™ is a natural, non-GMO oil-soluble pigment from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis macrozooid cell (pre-haematocyst).
AstaFusion™ uniquely combines the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin with β-carotene, canthaxanthin, lutein/zeaxanthin, and minor carotenoids.
o This blend is not found in current algal astaxanthin raw material in the market.
o This fusion of pigments works in synergy for broader skin health effects.
o The color is a distinctive red-orange.
o The pigmented oleoresin produced from microalgal biomass is naturally rich in oleic acid and linoleic acid, known to support skin barrier repair, and omega-7 fatty acid purported to support skin health.
o This proprietary production process using steel brew tanks reduces fresh water use by 10x to 100x compared to traditional photosynthetic production of microalgae in photobioreactors or raceway ponds.
