Amyris Continues To Expand Sales Of Squalane In Asia

Stocks in this article: AMRS

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amyris (Nasdaq:AMRS), a leading renewable products company, announced today the selection of Dowell C&I Co., Ltd., a supplier of ingredients for the personal care industry, as its exclusive distributor of Neossanceā„¢ Squalane in the Republic of Korea.

" We continue to see strong demand for our Neossance Squalane sales as more customers recognize the advantages offered by our high-purity, renewable emollient. This partnership with Dowell expands our network of distributors in Asia, allowing South Korean formulators access to a stable supply of squalane produced from sustainable raw materials, and supports our plans to double squalane sales in 2014," said Zanna McFerson, Chief Business Officer of Amyris.

" Dowell is a growing Korean distributor of squalane, a best-in-class emollient. Until recently, squalane could only be sourced from shark liver or olive oil. Thanks to its breakthrough technology, Amyris produces sugar-based squalane with excellent performance characteristics," said Jae Cheon You, President of Dowell.

NEOSSANCE SQUALANE

Squalane is one of the highest quality emollients on the market due to its sensorial profile, biocompatibility and consistently robust composition. It is naturally present in the skin lipid barrier, preventing moisture loss while restoring skin's suppleness and flexibility. Its exceptional moisturizing properties and ability to penetrate the skin have long made Squalane a favorite of cosmetics and personal care formulators.

Amyris has developed a unique process that enables the scalable and sustainable production of Neossance Squalane as a high-purity, high-quality replacement for traditional shark and olive-based squalane. Neossance Squalane offers exceptional hydration, biocompatibility, and elegant texture. Amyris's manufacturing process provides consistent product quality, yielding a colorless and odorless squalane.

Neossance Squalane is distributed in North America by CenterChem, in Europe by Laserson (now part of Safic-Alcan), in Japan by Nikko, and in Korea by Dowell. Amyris will be participating at In-Cosmetics, the leading trade show for the personal care ingredients industry taking place in April in Hamburg.
