The new SPF Booster line developed for the minerv bio cosmetics brand consist of micro powders made from biodegradable bioplastic microscopic spheres or capsules and are designed to significantly reduce the percentage of UV filters needed in the sun protection product and to boost water resistance.

All the PHAs (polyhydroxyalkanoates) developed by Bio-on are made from renewable plant sources with no competition with food supply chains.

Starting in summer 2018, all minerv bio cosmetics products will be made by Bio-on Plants, Bio-on’s first industrial plant dedicated to the production of cosmetic ingredients. Located in Castel San Pietro Terme (Bologna), it will produce 1000 tons/year of PHA micro powders (polyhydroxyalkanoates) over an area of 3,000 m2 with an overall investment of € 20 million.
