Algal Betaine is a renewable amphoteric surfactant derived from AlgaPūrÔ microalgae oils. Microalgae oil can be produced quickly in a reasonably contained system: fermentation tanks that can be placed on non-agricultural land, making it popular with brands seeking new ingredients and technologies inspired by nature. In addition, this innovative ingredient performs well across all market segments in the personal care market.
