Lignovations Closes Seed RoundDezember 4, 2023
Lignovations has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious ALLE Award 2024 sponsored by the leading cosmetic industry trade magazine Cosmetics & Toiletries.
In the 2023 Futurezone Award ceremony, Lignovations has emerged victorious as the best Green Project for its groundbreaking functional materials from lignin. The Austrian company specializes in harnessing the potential of Lignin, a plant component found in wood waste, to create sustainable alternatives for various products, including cosmetics.
