Solutions For

Exfoliator and hydrator

Demand for anti-aging products continues to grow both as the population ages and as younger consumers become more aware of skin treatment options. Yet these consumers also want ingredient transparency and solutions that are gentle and safe. Our AltivTM product line offers ingredients that can act as a mild exfoliator or humectant that is safe for most skin types and works especially well in dry skin care. Generally regarded as gentle due to its combination of exfoliant and humectant properties, AltivTM is a sustainable choice for use in hand, face, and body creams, serums, lotions, and cleansers.


Care for the environment

A recent third party life cycle analysis (LCA) found that Solugen’s unique process, coupled with biogenic uptake of carbon in corn-based products, leads to carbon negative production of our Altiv products. These products offer a superior environmental profile and a bio-based solution to offer exfoliating and humectant properties in personal care solutions.
