Green synthesis of sustainable BIO-sourced multi-functional ingredient for skin CARE applications

Project description

How the kraft process can be great for your skin

From kohl which was used by the Ancient Egyptians to darken the eyelids to the countless personal care products that make up today’s cosmetics and personal care industry, there is concern about the environmental impact and human health risk related to the use of chemical ingredients. The EU-funded BIO4CARE project will explore the natural alternative: lignin. Generated as an undervalued by-product from kraft-pulping operations, kraft lignin has the potential to become a multi-functional ingredient to manufacture a novel and bio-based competitive solution for skin photo-protection. What is more, through the project’s MSCA programme activities, the researcher will reach professional maturity and independence.
