Sun protection by alpine algae

Research project for the extraction of natural raw materials from algae

In the research area Food Science & Biotechnology project manager Harald Schöbel was able to land a new research project. The aim of this project is the extraction of natural raw materials from alpine algae, which absorb the UV radiation of the sun very efficiently. These substances can be used as additional components for various cosmetic products to significantly improve their sun protection factor. The project is made possible by the Tiroler Wissenschaftsförderung (TWF).
