Neossance® Squalane

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Aprinnova
Neossance® Squalane by Aprinnova acts as an emollient. Squalane has been used by formulators as a high performing emollient, the gold standard for imparting a smooth and supple skin feel. Aprinnova, a joint venture of Amyris & NIKKOL GROUP, has developed a biotechnology route to Squalane. Their process starts with Brazilian sugarcane and continues through a fermentation step to produce Neossance® Squalane. This unique process results in exceedingly high levels of purity and consistency. Their clinical & consumer studies have demonstrated Neossance® Squalane’s skin therapy benefits such as cell turnover acceleration, moisturization, skin firmness improvement or reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Neossance® Squalane brings performance, quality, sustainability, availability and value which make it an ideal choice for today’s skin care formulations. Neossance® Squalane is ECOCERT-approved & 100% USDA certified Biobased product.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[15.9, 0.1, 0.1]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with Neossance® Squalane. A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
