« Amyris, Inc., the industrial bioscience company, has announced that it has won a SEPAWA Innovation Award 2015 for its Neossance® Hemisqualane high-performance emollient.
SEPAWA is one of the largest industry associations in Europe whose members are experts in the detergents/cleansers, cosmetics and perfume industries and the annual awards recognize new, high-impact ingredients that are expected to have a disruptive effect on the industry.
Neossance Hemisqualane, a sugarcane-derived sustainable alternative to silicones, was chosen for exceptional innovation in the field of cosmetics, detergents and perfumery and for its superior performance as an ingredient in skin, hair and sun care, as well as makeup products. Amyris’s European cosmetic distributor, Safic-Alcan accepted the award on Amyris’s behalf after giving a presentation on Neossance Hemisqualane at the SEPAWA Congress in Fulda, Germany.

Our personal care product sales are experiencing unprecedented growth for Amyris as we further penetrate the global personal care market.”
