Lignovations has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious ALLE Award 2024 sponsored by the leading cosmetic industry trade magazine Cosmetics & Toiletries.

“The competition was fierce”, says award organizer Rachel Grabenhofer, however after an extensive review by the judges, they were impressed by the sustainable, multifunctional ingredient LignoGuard®. The winners will be announced at an exclusive gala dinner on March 6, 2024 as part of the Beauty Accelerate conference in Los Angeles, USA.
LignoGuard® is a multifunctional cosmetic ingredient developed and manufactured by Lignovations that is an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic ingredients with NaTrue and COSMOS approval. Its proven functionalities include:
- SPF Booster: boosting SPF by up to 50% and eliminating white cast in mineral formulations
- Antioxidant: reducing oxidative stress by over 80% promoting healthier skin by protecting it from free radicals

“We are very honored and excited to participate in the ALLE Award 2024. This participation shows us one more time that we are on the right path in contributing something meaningful to skin care with an ingredient we are truly passionate about.”, says Victor Tibo, Managing Director at Lignovations.
The sun care market, in particular, is facing challenges as consumers seek products that are in line with their environmental values. The introduction of LignoGuard® offers both manufacturers and brands an effective solution to improve the performance and sustainability of their skincare products.
Earlier this year, Lignovations has won the IFSCC Sustainability Challenge in Barcelona receiving recognition for their focus on sustainability, scientifically-proven efficacy and consistent quality which makes their products attractive for the cosmetics industry.
