Givaudan new data bisabololGivaudan Active Beauty presents new specifications for BisaboLife®, the purest and sustainable (-)-α-bisabolol. Thanks to an optimized process, Givaudan now guarantees an ingredient with a level of purity at a minimum of 99 percent. The research also demonstrates that the active ingredient possesses the lowest farnesol content on the market (<0.05 percent) versus synthetic alternatives.

Crafted by White Biotechnology


The company’s objective is to innovate by creating natural alternatives to synthetics, building on Givaudan Active Beauty's position as #1 in actives from biotechnology.

Launched in 2017, BisaboLife® is a fully bio-sourced bisabolol, crafted by white biotechnology through the fermentation of plant sugars. It offers the possibility of fortifying and soothing sensitive skin and scalp while restoring comfort. Clinical tests demonstrate that the active ingredient reduces skin redness by 81 percent after shaving and soothes scalp irritation by 25 percent.

While natural sourcing has the advantage of not containing farnesol at all, we all know its limitations: less sustainable, less reliable supply depending on seasonality, deforestation risk, and in general more expensive. Givaudan now offers the best level of purity on the market (>99%), compared to the usual 95% for the natural sourcing and 95-97% for the synthetic alternative, while limiting the farnesol content to below 0.05% and outperforming petro-chemical offers,” said Mathias Fleury, global category manager Active Beauty, Biotech Actives and HA.
