Lignopure and LignoBase in EURO COSMETICS Magazine

Sustainability is in our roots

At Lignopure, sustainability is rooted in all that we do and who we are. Therefore, we are deeply committed to traceability and responsible supply of renewables because we strongly believe that without traceability, there is no real sustainability. For this reason, we are very happy to
have been featured in EURO COSMETICS Magazine and to been recognized as one of the game changers in the cosmetic industry by offering sustainable solutions for cleaner personal are products.
Our focus is to only use functional sustainable and ethical raw materials to create an environmentally positive impact that benefits our customers and their customers’ sustainability goals. For this, and to ensure the quality of our lignin, we have a socially and environmentally conscious supplier selection process that follows strict regulations to offer safe, sustainable, and functional bio-based lignin solutions to the cosmetic industry. We then only work with suppliers that take advantage of forestry and agricultural residues, do not compete for food supplies, do not endanger biodiversity, and follow strict sustainability standards throughout their supply and manufacturing processes.

LignoBase, sustainability meets functionality

LignoBase, the first lignin-based line for cosmetic formulations LignoBase is a natural and upcycled multifunctional cosmetic ingredient line extracted from ethically sourced GMO-free plants.
The LignoBase line is a compliant natural alternative, Cosmos Approved, of 100% natural origin according to ISO 16128, and, being polymerized in nature, it is also free from microplastics according to regulation (EU) 2023/2055.

All LignoBases come as a ready-to-incorporate powder with optimized particle size and morphology, that facilitate the transfer of lignin’s multi-protective properties into diverse formulations, making it a great fit for several beauty applications like skin care, sun care, make up, hair and body care.

Each LignoBase offers a soft skin feeling with a mattifying effect and oil-adsorbing properties, while their unique polyphenolic molecular structure provides multiple cosmetic functionalities
such as skin protection against free radicals, antioxidant activity in the formulation, and an SPF-boosting effect. Derived from ethically sourced non-food competition biomasses, and using our
patented transformation process that preserves the natural properties of its lignin of origin, each LignoBase is therefore not only multifunctional but a natural, safe and sustainable first-of its-kind ingredient.

  • Antioxidant: LignoBase’s natural polyphenolic structure, with multiple protondonating functional groups, makes it a powerful active with free radical scavenging properties that protects not only the skin cells from harmful oxidative stress, but also acts as a natural antioxidant system for formulations, stabilizing actives, and other liable ingredients.
  • SPF and UVA-PF Booster: LignoBase has a unique combination of properties that optimize the performance of sun care products. While its film-forming capacity allows an even dispersion of the UV filters and promotes full skin coverage.
  • Natural Color: LignoBase’s natural brown tones simplify the color formulation for many cosmetic applications, in addition to reducing the white cast effect typical of many sun care formulations.
  • Mattifying: LignoBase provides a rejuvenating soft-focus effect and a velvet finish due to optimized particle size and surface area. LignoBase had an equal or higher oil adsorption capacity than Kaolin and more than twice the oil adsorption capacity compared with that of Bentonite.
