VALUABLE - Microalgea in cosmetics

VALUABLE - Microalgea in cosmetics

Different species of microalgae have different content of lipids and pigments. The species used in this study will be selected based on their chemical composition, to produce raw material for lotions and nutraceuticals for human consumption.

Nordic Atlantic Cooperation (NORA) supports collaborations between business, research and development organizations in countries around the North Atlantic. In the project VALUABLE; SINTEF and NTNU (Norway) in cooperation with MATIS, the University of Akureyri and Purity Herbs (Iceland) will develop high-value components from microalgae to be used in cosmetics and nutraceuticals.

The overall focus is on end-products and the content of lipids and pigments, and biomass optimization before it is used in any products.
