Lignovations, The Unseen Beauty share L’Oréal-backed IFSCC award

Austrian personal care ingredient maker Lignovations and UK material science outfit The Unseen Beauty were joint winners of the Sustainability Challenge at the IFSCC 33rd Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The Sustainability Challenge, hosted by Sociedad Española de Químicos Cosméticos (SEQC) and supported by L’Oréal Research & Innovation, recognises a new technology, design or manufacturing process that can be demonstrated to best meet the future needs of the cosmetics industry.

Vienna University of Technology spinoff Lignovations has developed LignoGuard – an upcycled natural ingredient derived from lignin, a component found in plants.

LignoGuard was recognized for its bio-derived functionalities including SPF boosting, antioxidation and emulsion stabilising.

“The recognition we have received at the IFSCC Sustainability Challenge 2023 reaffirms our dedication to driving positive change in an industry that is increasingly focusing on sustainability and more natural skin protection,” said Julia Tomasich, senior R&D engineer at Lignovations (pictured, centre).

“LignoGuard is the only commercially available cosmetic ingredient utilizing colloidal lignin technology, merging nature’s evolutionary wisdom with scientific innovation,” added business developer Cristina Kaufmann (pictured, right).

The Unseen Beauty has launched a colour-changing hair product, Colour Alchemy, which adapts and changes colour in response to changes in temperature and sunlight.

The London brand also markets a reflective eye makeup, Spectra, that transforms under a phone camera's flash.
