what is lignin? Lignopure

Discovering Innovation at Kreglinger UK’s first Technical Cosmetic Seminar 


In today’s fast-paced cosmetic industry, the ability to create formulations that are functional and natural is more critical than ever. Recognizing this imperative, Kreglinger UK has held its first cosmetic seminar where Lignopure was present to provide participants with the tools and insights necessary to formulate innovative beauty products containing LignoBase, the first lignin-based cosmetic ingredient.

Kreglinger’s seminar was held in the UK, with multiple participants engaged in cosmetic innovation for future personal care products. In this seminar, it was explored the utilization of new plant-based ingredients from Lignopure, as well as Uviva and Bunge. Through valuable insights and formulation prototypes, the attendees could discover how new and green innovative ingredients can support the creation of formulations that fulfill the growing demand of beauty consumers for sustainable and safe formulations.

The seminar was organized by Yi Ling Soong and Zahra Hussain from Kreglinger and had the presence of the following speakers:
