Eckart GmbH's lignin-based multifunctional LignoBase product range features antioxidant properties designed to fight free the radicals responsible for the signs of skin aging.
The technologies are available in three shades for tinted creams and makeup products for consumers of various skin tones.
They also reportedly serve as UV protection boosters in sunscreens and SPF creams, potentially allowing brands to deliver enhanced protection with diminished levels of sun protection filters.
LignoBase materials' lignin particles reportedly sink when exposed to water and therefore "do not have a negative effect on the water or the environment," per Eckart.
The company sources its renewable lignin from trees and plants.
