Solvay takes wraps off Mirasoft biosurfactants range

Belgian cosmetic ingredient supplier Solvay has launched Mirasoft, a new range of biosurfactants for carbon-neutral and circular beauty care products.

Mirasoft SL L60 and Mirasoft SL A60 are said to be 100% biobased and biodegradable surfactants manufactured through a cost-efficient fermentation process, targeting a broad range of applications in hair and skin care.

Based on rapeseed oil and sugar with low environmental and carbon footprint, these glycolipid biosurfactants are suitable for a broad range of applications in beauty care such as shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, face washes and creams, the company said.   

Mirasoft SL L60 and Mirasoft SL A60 are designed to provide the same performance as synthetic ingredients without harmful environmental effects, it added.

“With the potential of a net neutral carbon footprint in the near future, biosurfactants represent a step-change technology in the eco-design of next-generation beauty care products,” said Galder Cristobal, research & innovation director, Home & Personal Care at Solvay.

“The eco-profile of Mirasoft SL L60 and Mirasoft SL A60 is truly a breakthrough compared to conventional, fossil fuel-based surfactants,” he added.
