Hydresia oleosomes are all-natural, micron-sized spheres of emollient plant oils and vitamin E, found in plant seeds, where oleosomes serve as the natural storehouse of oil. They enhance formulations with multifunctional benefits and provide a perfect balance between natural authenticity and real performance. They boast a unique, continuous moisture delivery system that is an all-natural alternative to chemical emulsifiers and irritating ingredients with its microparticles of skin-softening oils and vitamins.

CapSol sunscreen oleosomes make it easy to produce trend-forward creams and lotions. Sourced from safflower seed oleosomes, CapSol is a breakthrough in sun care product formulation technology. It has the unique ability to load sunscreen filters in a way that dramatically reduces UV filter levels required for targeted SPF levels enabling a superior consumer experience and reduced environmental load.
