GREENTECH: at the crossroad of the worlds...
Although the aquatic environment is a huge pool of unknown molecules and substances with exceptional properties, natural substances from dry land are more widely used and studied.

PRODUCT PROFILE

Myrica fruit wax offers hair care benefits
Natural waxes are synthesised biochemically by numerous plants and animals. Plants secrete waxes into and on the surface of their cuticles as a way to control evaporation, wettability and hydration. As a result of climatic conditions, many plants in tropical regions also store waxes in membrane layers in the cuticula as an additional protection against evaporation of water.
