Solasta™ is a natural astaxanthin extract produced from the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis, the richest natural source of the antioxidant. Research has shown that algal astaxanthin has superior antioxidant activity compared to other well-known antioxidants.

Solasta™ Astaxanthin is an excellent source of astaxanthin for use in dietary supplement and personal care applications. Solasta™ is non-GMO, vegetarian, and extracted in the USA. The extraction uses super-critical carbon dioxide to ensure the safety, quality, and consistency of Solasta™.

Solix Algredients is now leveraging its extensive algal cultivation expertise to supply functional ingredients for consumer end-use. "The launch of Solasta™ Astaxanthin coincides with the repositioning of Solix Algredients as a global, B2B supplier of high quality natural ingredients derived from algae," explained James Tuan, Chief Commercial Officer.

Solasta™ will be sold to manufacturers and marketers of dietary supplement and personal care products. "Solasta™ Astaxanthin is the first commercial product in our portfolio of algae-based B2B ingredients," noted Mr. Tuan.

Solasta™ Astaxanthin is manufactured in accordance with industry best practices and guidelines (current Good Manufacturing Practice - GMP) defined by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Solasta™ meets the strict quality standards set forth in the Astaxanthin Esters Monographs of the Food Chemical Codex and the US Pharmacopeia.
