Neossance® Hemisqualane

The Clean Beauty, plant-based silicone alternative

A fermentation-derived, plant-based molecule that is used for a variety of personal care needs.
Hemisqualane is a natural alternative to paraffins and silicones. Among other properties, it helps hair maintain moisture and facilitates repair, represented here in a pattern of expanding cylinders.

Neossance® Hemisqualane is the preferred sustainable and naturally-derived alternative to silicone by top global brands. As a sustainable ingredient in virtually unlimited supply, it provides an equivalent sensory and functional performance to unhealthy, banned silicones like isohexadecane and cyclomethicone in skincare, haircare, suncare, makeup removal, and color cosmetics.

Certain types of silicones can build up on hair that block out moisture and subsequently, prevent the hair from receiving moisture. Over time, silicones can make the hair appear dull and can also result in weaker hair due to lack of moisture.

Hemisqualane is ideal for conditioners, treatments, and styling products, opening up new possibilities as a sustainable and high-performing silicone replacement for hair care. Hemisqualane moisturizes and repairs the hair shaft at the root. It delivers color and thermal production, improved manageability, reduced frizz, and reduced greasiness without drying the scalp.
