Bionat Consult R&D team is continuously sourcing in the vegetable world to find alternatives to animal derivatives and hydrogenated products. Animal Squalane has been banned from cosmetics since it is a shark liver derivative, and Vegetable Squalane is not wanted anymore because it is a health-threatening hydrogenated fat.

BIONAT CONSULT is presenting POLYSSAN OL, a natural and safe alternative to:
- animal squalane
- hydrogenated vegetable squalane

POLYSSAN OL is an anhydrous lipid presenting the characteristics of squalane: a light texture, a good spreadability and a dry skin feel, as well as the same applications as texturizing agent.

POLYSSAN OL has been developed using our innovative technologies based on olive oil and polyglyceride esters : POLYSSAN OL is 100% from vegetable origin and our process is hydrogenation free.
