    Veegum and Vanatural are two ingredient brands used in the cosmetics and personal care industry.

    Logo Vanderbilt

    They can contribute to the stability of a sunscreen formula and improve its texture in multiple ways:

    Formula Stability:

    Veegum is a colloidal clay that acts as a thickening and stabilising agent in emulsions.


    It provides consistency to the formula, preventing phase separation and ensuring the ingredients remain evenly dispersed.


    Veegum’s ability to control viscosity and improve stability helps prevent particle sedimentation and ensures the sunscreen formula remains uniform and effective over time.

    Improved Texture:

    Veegum, when used in sun cream or lotion formulations, can improve texture by delivering a smooth and pleasant feel to the touch.


    Veegum colloidal clay has absorbent properties that can help to mattify the skin, reducing the greasy sensation sometimes associated with suncare products.

    Viscosity Control:

    Vanatural is a naturally derived ingredient line and, depending on the variant, can offer emulsifying and thickening properties.


    Vanatural’s ability to control viscosity is crucial in suncare products to ensure a smooth and even application to the skin.

    Backscattering of UV filters:

    Both Veegum and Vanatural can contribute to the even dispersion of UV filters in the formula, which is essential for effective sun protection.


    By ensuring the UV filters are evenly distributed, these ingredients help prevent the formation of high concentrations in some areas, which could result in uneven application and, ultimately, inadequate protection.

    Absorbent and Mattifying Properties:

    Depending on the specific formula, some ingredients in the Vanatural line can have absorbent and mattifying properties, which can be beneficial in suncare products, especially those designed for oily skin types.

    Overall, the inclusion of Veegum and Vanatural in a sunscreen formulation can significantly contribute to emulsion stability, improve product texture, control viscosity, and ensure an even dispersion of the active ingredients, all of which are essential for an effective and pleasant-to-use sunscreen.

    Ocean-friendly and Cosmos-approved.

    Our TiO2 or ZnO silicone dispersions and the support of our technical team can help you today


    Silicone dispersions with titanium dioxide (TiO2) or zinc oxide (ZnO) are common in suncare products and play a crucial role in improving their texture and application. Here are some ways that silicone dispersions help to improve the texture of suncare products:

    A Smooth and Silky Texture:

    Silicones, such as dimethicone or cyclopentasiloxane, have softening properties and provide a silky feel on the skin.

    By incorporating titanium dioxide or zinc oxide into these silicones, we can achieve a uniform dispersion that not only protects against UV rays but also creates a smooth texture that is pleasant to the touch.

    Ease of Spreadability:

    Silicone dispersions improve the spreadability of the suncare product, making it easy to apply evenly and smoothly to the skin.

    The silicone acts as a vehicle that facilitates the even distribution of the mineral UV filters, resulting in a more comfortable application.

    No White Residue:

    Silicone dispersions help to reduce the white residue often associated with mineral UV filters such as TiO2 or ZnO.

    The combination of silicones and finely dispersed mineral particles ensures the product is transparent when applied and reduces the visibility of the filters on the skin.

    Improved Water and Perspiration Resistance:

    Silicones provide water and perspiration-resistant properties that improve the durability of the suncare product.

    Combining them with mineral UV filters maintains water resistance and ensures effective protection, even during physical activity or wet conditions.

    Light, Non-greasy Finish:

    Including silicone dispersions ensures a light, non-greasy finish, which is especially important for suncare products applied to the skin.

    They ensure the product is easily absorbed and feels comfortable all day long.

    Compatibility with Other Ingredients:

    Silicone dispersions are often compatible with various ingredients, making it easy to formulate suncare products with other skin-beneficial components.

    In summary, silicone dispersions with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide help to improve the texture of suncare products by providing smoothing properties, ensuring ease of application, minimising white residue and offering additional benefits such as water resistance and a light finish. These products are a popular choice for those looking to achieve effective sun protection with a pleasant sensory experience.

    Egg prices are getting higher and higher and are expected to increase further due to new egg production regulations in Europe.

    To help you control your production costs, the Food_lab works on different reformulation solutions, either by reducing the amount of egg in the formula, or by replacing it completely.

    How do we do this?

    In two ways:

    • By using innovative ingredients that can help you maintain a great customer experience for your consumers.
    • Creatively combining traditional ingredients, such as fibres and vegetable flours.

    Here are some examples of recipes we have created:

    Egg-free potato omelette

    tortilla vegana

    Egg-free brioche bread


    Egg-free waffles


    In all of these recipes, the egg has either been partially or completely replaced without altering the organoleptic and nutritional properties of the egg.

    Find out how we can help you reformulate or develop your egg-free recipes for the food industry.

    What happens when you give an “all-terrain” active ingredient a longer and more prolonged journey? 

    Niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide) is a unique skin-restoring ingredient, a multifunctional compound that provides several cosmetic benefits, increasing ceramide biosynthesis, improving the epidermal barrier that degrades in mature skin, consequently improving texture and tone as well as reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.


    Nano Niacinamide Solution stands out by significantly enhancing the benefits provided by this versatile ingredient compared to its free form:

    • The active ingredient remains on the skin for longer, reaching the dermis within a few hours.

    • Action is prolonged due to its slow release.

    • The vehicle itself, even without active ingredients, acts as a moisturising agent due to the capacity of its components to retain water, providing even more multifunctionality to the product.

    Crops are subject to adverse climatic events throughout their life cycle (cold snaps, drought, floods and heat waves).


    In response to these events, plants generate and accumulate chemically reactive oxygen species (ROS) in their cellular compartments. The generation of ROS during normal crop growth is a physiological requirement.


    However, during adverse climatic conditions, plants produce ROS at dangerously high levels. This is known as “oxidative stress” and causes profound and irreversible damage to plant tissues and organs.


    All critical stages of crop development can be affected by stress and oxidative damage.

    In vegetative growth, oxidative stress causes stunted plant growth and limited root growth, resulting in delayed establishment and development.

    This results in lower crop yields at harvest time. In particular, the reproductive growth stages of crops are highly sensitive to damage from oxidative stress, culminating in reduced fruit set and significantly lowered crop productivity.

    It is vitally important to protect crops against oxidative stress throughout their life cycle, from the early stages of plant growth to harvest. Growers require crops to maintain vigour and yield under stress conditions, similar to those that occur under stress-free conditions.


    Since 2007 BioAtlantis has focused on developing stress mitigation mechanisms in crops, using naturally occurring compounds isolated from marine and terrestrial resources.

    BioAtlantis currently has a portfolio of ingredients for inclusion in formulations for plant health, foliar and granular fertilisers, providing:

    • Highly concentrated liquid seaweed extracts.

    • Agglomerated algae powder with excellent solubility.

    BioAtlantis uses a patented multi-step extraction process and low temperature spray-drying technology, manufacturing all its ingredients according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP+) and is suitable for Organic Farming.
