Dunaliella salina


Food and Nutrition Supplements:

Dunaliella salina microalgae are the best source of natural mixed carotenoids which include beta- carotene, alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein and cryptoxanthin. Apart from the mixture of carotenoids, the micro-algae also possess essential nutrients like proteins, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.

Key Benefits

  • The mixtures of carotenoids have antioxidant and immune boosting activities by protecting against free radical damage responsible for premature skin aging, cataracts and cardiovascular diseases.
  • The natural Beta-carotene (Vitamin A) acts in support of healthy eye sight and in the body’s natural immune system against infection.
  • Zeaxanthin and Lutein are the only carotenoids present in the retina and lens. The presence of these compounds help in slowing down macular degeneration.
  • Proteins, vitamins, fatty acids and phytonutrients like chlorophyll help in natural detoxification of the body.


Beta-carotene has been used extensively in the cosmetics and personal care products since many years owing to its orange colour pigmentation and anti-oxidant properties. With the growing market sentiment to using naturally derived products, Dunaliella salina derived beta carotene is a perfect replacement product in the cosmetic industry.

Key Benefits

  • Natural beta-carotene is 4-10 times more bioavailable than synthetic beta-carotene. The better bioavailability of natural beta-carotene significantly increases its anti-oxidant effectiveness in personal care products.
  • These natural dyes determine epithelial growth; prevent excessive skin exfoliation and neoplastic changes due to UV radiations.
  • Carotenoids have been proven to soothe sunburns, reduce harmful radiations and also significantly reduce the number of photo-aging markers.
  • Beta-carotene is converted into retinyl palmiate on penetration into the epidermis. The compound is indicative of good penetration of the skin and is used in cases of skin roughness, discolouration, spots and colour unevenness.
