Medium chain coconut alkanes (Vegelight) is a new range of bio-based and biodegradable substitutes of volatile cylomethicones, isdododecane and isohexadecane.

Vegelight range is obtained from a fair trade coconut oil and by an eco-designed process in compliance with the principles of green chemistry. A better environmental impact versus silicones is supported by an ISO-standardized life cycle analysis.

Vegelight bioalkanes offer green solutions in terms of volatility, minerals oxides dispersions and sensorial properties for skin & hair care including make-up and solar products.

China approved, Cosmos and Vegan registred, Vegelight range is specifically  designed for efficient and sustainable cosmetics.
