The Oleo Active Blends selection includes 6 highly concentrated active oil blends, the properties of which are time tested and validated with series of performance tests. The Blends are composed of micro-structured oily extracts, concentrated and stabilized by a patented green-extraction process.
Each Blend is a unique and optimized synergy of vegetable oils and different plant extracts. Vegetable oils are used as green and renewable extractants. They are safe and bioactive in vivo, no organic solvent or any chemical product or catalysers are used.
Plants are chosen to respect sustainability and biodiversity. The Oleo Active Blends have high stability, low oxidation levels and high concentrations of active biomolecules.
The extraction is a physical eco-process, with carefully controlled drying and cryo-grinding phases. The extraction is intensified with microwaves and ultrasounds, and no preservative is added.
… the carriers
The carriers of the active extracts are squalane and hemisqualane, which are plant-derived, non-polar hydrocarbons, with a great sensorial profile and proven skin care benefits.
Squalane is one of the highest quality and most versatile emollients on the market due to its biocompatibility and consistently robust composition. It resists oxidation and is stable to UV and temperature variations.
Squalane is a fully saturated, and very stable hydrocarbon which also happens to be naturally present in the skin. It is an exceptional moisturizer, preventing moisture loss and imparting suppleness and flexibility to skin. It provides a silky, smooth and luxurious touch, without a greasy, heavy after-feel.
Proven skin benefits:
- Increases cell turnover
- Provides moisture
- Improves skin elasticity
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Enhances skin barrier integrity
Hemisqualane is a C15 hydrocarbon, it creates elegant and light textures with a non-tacky, non-greasy, silky finish.
Proven skin benefits:
- High spreadability
- Luxurious and light textures
- Soft and silky after-feel
- Excellent cleansing properties
Both our squalane and hemisqualane are gained through a unique process that enables the production of plant sugar derived pure end-products from renewable sources.
