Unilever and Bio-on present My Kai the new line of ultra-green sun creams
The partnership between Unilever and Bio-on has created new brand My Kai, set to enter the cosmetics market with the first line of eco-friendly sun creams.
It is the world's first product made from the new cosmetic ingredients designed by Bio-on: micro powders made with the revolutionary minerv bio cosmetics bioplastic, obtained from renewable plant sources and 100% biodegradable.
Bio-on's ultra-green ingredients enable cosmetics products to significantly reduce the percentage of UV filters, which are essential to protect the skin but can be harmful for the environment, boosting water resistance at the same time.
My Kai products will be available in stores from March 2019.
The new My Kai brand is designed to safeguard the seas and oceans and references the Hawaiian terms Kai (sea) and Makai (to the ocean). It is inspired by the principles of Hawaii, one of the countries at the cutting edge in marine ecosystem protection and where Bio-on began its work in the early days.
Bio-on and Hera create Lux-on the new challenge to produce bioplastic from CO2
Bio-on, a leader in the high quality bioplastic sector, and Gruppo Hera, one of Italy's largest multi-utility providers, have reached an agreement in LUX-ON, the new company founded by Bio-on aiming to revolutionise the production of PHAs biopolymers using CO2 captured from the atmosphere and producing energy without using fossil fuels. The new technology developed by Bio-on envisages using carbon dioxide as a zero cost "raw material", in addition to those already used to produce Bio-on bioplastic: sugar beet and sugar cane molasses, fruit and potato waste, carbohydrates, glycerol and waste frying oil. Using CO2 will also help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. www.lux-on.com
Frost & Sullivan gives award for best innovation in the cosmetics sector to Bio-on
Minerv Bio Cosmetics, the 100% natural bioplastic microspheres biodegradable in soil and water, are named the year's most innovative biobased product in the cosmetics sector. Frost & Sullivan finds that "Bio-On is properly positioned to serve as a leader in the bio-polymeric ingredient revolution for the cosmetics industry". For Frost & Sullivan, the bioplastic microspheres patented by Bio-on are "incredibly versatile" and are "a sustainable alternative to synthetic polymers for use in not only cosmetics, but also in the food, healthcare, packaging, and FMCG industries. Looking ahead, the PHAs could provide a potential solution for cancer treatment within the next few years".
Bio-on grand opening


Bio-on: i.e., turn on BIO! "turn OFF pollution"!
This is the simple idea encapsulated by the ON in our company name; a globally-recognised sign of positivity and of improving the lives of all. From today, Bio-on will help build a more sustainable future for everyone, through everyday plastic objects.
By licensing out the proprietary know-how to produce PHAs (polyhydroxyalkanoates), recognised as the best biopolymers for the future. A new generation of linear polyesters to replace and improve PET, PE, PP, HDPE, LDPE... for a world where it is no longer necessary to destroy in order to build, but plant seeds in order to produce.
MINERV-PHA™ accentuates its excellent biodegradability factor both in water and in soil. This type of polymer biodegradation is the "future" of global biodegradability. The natural dissolution of a biopolymer in water or soil in a short time is a rare and very difficult result to achieve. MINERV-PHA™ is the first high-performing biopolymer obtained from agricultural co-products or waste to achieve this important result. MINERV-PHA™ dissolves in normal river or sea water leaving no residue in just a few days.
MINERV-PHA™ production in its special applications is supplied directly by Bio-on from its production sites. Our industrial production website provides more information.
