Lux Algal Oil Soap




What they say about it

Lux has partnered with Solazyme to produce the next generation of soaps with oil produced entirely from algal oil. This process is more sustainable than previous techniques and results in a greater level of product purity.

How they say it works

Replacing the original palm oil that went into older versions of the soap, Unilever will instead use oil created through custom-engineered algae. The rest of the production process remains unchanged but the new source should result in a purer final substance.
