Water-soluble astaxanthin emulsion.

Algatechnologies has developed a 2% natural astaxanthin in a unique liquid-emulsion format under the AstaPure brand name. Natural astaxanthin is a lipid-soluble ingredient and can typically be used in oil-based formulations. However, due to its extremely potent antioxidant properties, there is a high demand in the market for a water-soluble form that can be introduced in "oil-in-water" cosmetic formulations and as an active functional ingredient for beverages.The astaxanthin emulsion is produced under patent-protected, ISO- and GMP-certified technology. It is a ready-to-use formulation and can be introduced into liquid-filled capsules or any other water-soluble application.Its unique technology is based on foodgrade, 100% water-soluble micelles, allowing for the production of a highly stable product form with respect to pH and temperature. The micelles have a diameter of approximately 30 nm. For further information:
