Botaneco’s Hydresia G2 Approved by Ecocert

November 17, 2008

Botaneco Specialty Ingredients’ second-generation oleosome product, Hydresia G2, has been authorized by Ecocert as an approved raw material, complying with the standards for ecological and organic cosmetics. Hydresia G2 is a cold-process emulsifying system comprised of oleosomes, naturally-occurring oil reservoirs derived from safflower seeds. Using a proprietary, non-solvent aqueous extraction process, oleosomes are isolated from the seed fully intact, and when used in skin care applications can provide lasting protection to the skin. Hydresia G2 is a natural, renewable replacement for hydrocarbon derived petrolatum, mineral oil and nonionic surfactants, according to the company.

“Botaneco is dedicated to manufacturing its all-natural products to comply with the highest natural production standards while eliminating the use of chemicals and synthetics,” said Andrew Baum, president and chief executive officer of Botaneco’s parent company, SemBioSys. “The Ecocert authorization validates our product and production process with the most internationally recognized symbol for natural and organic raw materials.” More info: www.botaneco.ca
