As part of Bio-on's 'minerv bio' personal care product range, which was launched earlier this year, the brand is introducing two new biodegradable ingredients that take the form of SPF boosters.

The biodegradable ingredients go by the names minervPHB Riviera and minervPHB Riviera Plus, which have the potential to be used in everything from makeup and skincare to haircare to offer protection from both UVA and UVB rays. These new biodegradable ingredients are derived from the brand's biodegradable bioplastic—made from renewable plant sources—and boast the ability to reduce UV damage, while also helping to make formulas more resistant to water.

With the introduction of these ingredients, Bio-on is making it possible for cosmetic manufacturers to reduce the percentage of UV filters that are used in sunscreen.
