Amyris’s signature renewable cosmetic product is Neossance Squalane, one of the highest quality emollients on the market due to its sensorial profile, biocompatibility and consistently robust composition.
Neossance Squalane is a fully saturated, non-polar hydrocarbon. It is naturally present in the skin’s lipid barrier, preventing moisture loss while restoring the skin’s suppleness and flexibility. Squalane’s exceptional moisturizing properties and ability to penetrate the skin have made squalane a long time favorite amongst cosmetic formulators. It offers a silky, smooth and elegant texture without a greasy, heavy after feel. Source
