Innovation Award for Novel Functional Active

The awards are given to honor the development of a novel active or functional ingredient combining innovative science and product features in a way that demonstrates substantial benefits to manufacturers and end-users.

Hallstar’s Chairman, President and CEO, John Paro said:

I’m delighted to see our R&D team receive this prestigious recognition. We are committed to innovation and to providing the right chemistry so our customers can work wonders with their products. Micah is a great example of Hallstar’s world-class capabilities.”

Product Launch Pad


in-cosmetics attracts a global audience of cosmetic manufacturers, distributors and consultants, and is the leading innovation launch pad for the personal care industry. Around 100 Innovation Award entries from around the world were received for the 2017 prize.

Vice President of Research & Development, Robert Hu explained:

“Micah’s breakthrough chemistry represents a whole new category of sun care protection and anti-aging because it halts the photo-aging process before it starts. Independent clinical research shows that Micah, unlike sunscreens or antioxidants, prevents 100% of free radicals, ROS, inflammation, and DNA damage from UVA and Visible Light, at a use level of only 0.2%.”

Varun Mathur, Hallstar’s Beauty & Personal Care General Manager, was on-hand in London to accept the award.

“Hearing Hallstar announced from the stage affirmed our confidence in Micah’s potential. Whether it be a serum, sunscreen or moisturizer, Micah could be an integral part of any anti-aging solution.”
