Natural alternatives
for the cosmetic industry

Alban Muller researches and develops 100% natural alternatives to synthetic ingredients to replace silicones, parabens and polyethylene beads in the formulation of cosmetic products.

Amigel® - Gelling agent and stabilizer

Amigel® is an alternative to carbomer and other synthetic agents of petrochemical origin. Made of 100% natural polysaccharide with exceptional gelling and thickening properties, Amigel® is an incomparable stabilizing agent for the formulation of emulsions and suspensions. It also offers moisturizing properties as well as a uniquely soft and supple texture to cosmetic products.

A very stable molecule derived from biotechnology, Amigel® gives a touch of incomparable softness and can stabilize even the most delicate cosmetic formulas.

Amigel® is compatible with all cosmetic ingredients and is resistant to physical and chemical stresses. It is perfect for formulating products such as:

  • Active gel with suitable viscosity
  • Hair care products
  • Make-up
  • Sunscreen
  • Spray products

Amipreserve - Authorized natural preservative

A paraben-free natural cosmetic, Amipreserve is an active ingredient that safely and effectively replaces synthetic preservatives.

Composed of a 100% natural and plant-based pure salicylic acid molecule, Amipreserve is extracted from wintergreen, a plant known for its high content of salicylated derivatives. This natural and eco-responsible version of salicylic acid can be used as a natural preservative in cosmetic products such as foaming gels or emulsions.

Manufactured according to eco-responsible manufacturing processes, Amipreserve results from an approach based on eco-design and sustainable development. It is currently the only natural preservative authorized by regulations for use in natural cosmetic formulations.

Lipolami® ER - Soft-touch texture agent

A natural alternative to silicone, Lipolami® ER is a multifunctional ingredient that protects the skin barrier.

This dry-touch fluid oil is obtained from milk thistle, a plant not commonly used in cosmetics. Its exceptional sensorial textures are ideally suited for emulsions and foaming products.

Lipolami® ER enables the formulation of natural emulsions that have a smooth, non-sticky texture, providing a feeling of extreme softness on application.

With a fluidity that more closely resembles water than oil, Lipolami® ER spreads easily on the skin, enabling the formulation of cosmetic products that are pleasant and comfortable to use.

Multifunctional, this natural cosmetic ingredient source of omega-6 is also scientifically proven to help protect the cutaneous barrier.

Lipolami® ER possesses exceptional dispersing and solubilizing properties for sunscreen products, make-up and perfume, including:

  • Stability and fineness of emulsions
  • Solubilization of perfumes (perfume bases and essential oils)
  • Solubilization of fatty substances
