Botaneco plants New Jersey lab
Botaneco, an Alberta-based maker of personal care ingredients, has opened a technical service lab in Lambertville, N.J., to develop a U.S. customer base for its safflower-derived oleosomes. Oleosomes are micron-sized oil-containing spheres found naturally in oil-bearing plant seeds such as safflower, sunflower, and rapeseed. In addition to skin moisturizing properties, the firm says, they have emulsification, sunscreen, and active ingredient delivery applications.
