The ITEHPEC (Inovação e Tecnologia em Higiene Pessoal, Perfumaria, e Cosméticos) Innovation Award, created in 2005 by Brazil’s most important personal care association, recognizes suppliers that contribute to the Brazilian cosmetic industry through new ingredients or processes. Award winners were announced at in-cosmetics Latin America in Sao Paulo on September 18th.
BLUE Oléoactif® is extracted through a patented Oléo-éco-extraction process (Portuguese) from three varieties of rice and highly-nutritive rice germ, with complementary phytomolecules from soybean oil. Clinical results prove that it maintains skin’s normal physiology in the presence urban pollutants and blue light by boosting cell’s defense and repair systems.
“This recognition highlights the substantiated wellness and cosmetic benefits of 100% vegetal, locally-sourced actives,” observes Anne Rossignol-Castera, Hallstar’s General Manager of Oléos. “Oléo-éco-extraction technology, which we’ve leveraged in a diverse collection of Oléoactifs (Portuguese), enables us to transfer a plant’s biological footprint directly in a vegetable oil complex. BLUE Oléoactif® is a great example of gathering the best from nature and using sustainable technology to harness its power.”
Leonardo Sabedot, General Manager of Hallstar Brazil, accepted the prize on behalf of the company. “The award ceremony was another memorable moment in a very successful show for Hallstar Beauty,” says Sabedot. “There is no question that our global product lines of functional naturals and sun care solutions, as well as our Oléos cosmetic actives, are generating significant interest in the Brazilian market.”
