ScienceDaily: Cosmetics With Soy Rather Than Petroleum Base Developed

Helge: The move to bio-based economy can take many forms and routes.

ScienceDaily: Cosmetics With Soy Rather Than Petroleum Base Developed: "Cosmetics With Soy Rather Than Petroleum Base Developed Science Daily — When Agricultural Research Service (ARS) chemists Joe Laszlo and Dave Compton originally developed SoyScreen, they envisioned outdoor enthusiasts and other consumers using their invention as an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based sunscreens."

Instead, SoyScreen—and the patented ARS method of producing it—became the technological platform from which iSoy Technologies Corporation of Cary, Ill., began launching a novel class of cosmetic ingredients called "skincare bio-lipid actives."

In February 2007, a variation of SoyScreen formulated by iSoy—ferulic soy glycerides (FSG33)—made its commercial debut as a key active ingredient in a wrinkle-prevention skincare product marketed by a major cosmetics company in New York City.
