Cosmetics

Hydal PHA can replace primary microplastics in cosmetic products as an exfoliation agent as well as toughener of the formulation. Due to the bulk properties of Hydal PHA (processability, biodegradability, and biocompatibility), it can replace all plastics in beauty products. 

All commercial UV filters raise a concern about their toxicity. We develop safe and effective sunscreen formulations based on specific Hydal PHA UV-protecting properties. We want to replace harmful UV filters toxic to human and significantly damaging aquatic ecosystems.

Plastic in cosmetics is a design error

Safe sunscreens, deodorants, shampoos, shower gels and more cosmetic products based on Hydal PHA are being developed under the Naturetics brand. It represents new generation of products safer both to human and the environment.

Biomedicine

We develop non-irritant, safe, effective and environment-friendly wound dressings with Hydal PHA.

Chronic wound treatment requires 1–3 % of all finances of modern health care systems. The high prevalence and low treatment success call for new solutions. 

Biocompatibility and biodegradability are the key properties of PHAs in biomedicine. PHAs can be also used as drug carrier as well as material for 2D and 3D scaffolds in tissue engineering. It is FDA approved material for surgical sutures.

Sustainable packaging

Packaging is currently the biggest field of PHAs applications. PHAs and many kinds of bioplastics tend to form a competitive alternative to traditional synthetic plastics. The main advantage of PHAs is the demonstrated biodegradability, comparable to cellulose, exceeding biodegradation rate of any other bioplastics.

PHAs have been already used for cosmetics and food packaging, disposable cutlery or straws, but also in durable goods production.

Agriculture

It is estimated that lands are 4-23 times more polluted by microplastics that the oceans. Plasticulture – the global usage of plastic materials in agriculture – is their main source.  

The annual consumption of pesticides is around 4 million tones. Only small percent of the application dose targets the pest. Most of it is lost by spray drift, evaporation, or leakage to water system after rain. Controlled-release systems help to target the pesticides, making them more efficient and resistant to weathering. This approach can help to lower global pesticides usage. 

PHAs can replace synthetic plastics in agriculture – PHAs are being tested as mulch foils, but can get many possible shapes and functions. We have focused our research on slow-release formulations of agrochemicals, mostly fertilizers. 

The palette of ideas

PHAs can find their application in almost any field. PHAs can be used for 3D printing, nanofibers production, for textiles, but also in aquaculture or electronics. Based on the GO!PHA survey, we estimate the future steps of PHAs in the graph.
