The Styrian astaxanthin in the international brands (ASTACOS® & ASTAFIT®) is justifiably called the "red diamond" due to its high antioxidant effect.

Astaxanthin is one of the most effective antioxidants and is an essential ingredient in our cosmetics line. We rely on high-quality, regional active ingredients and therefore source the red diamond from Styria.

Green Purity

Since BDI’s founding, we have been focusing on our commitment to sustainability and regionality. Our entire plant runs on one hundred per cent renewable electricity. To cultivate our microalgae, we only use biogenic CO2 accumulated as a waste product from regional bioethanol manufacturing.

With efficient material cycles, the closed state-of-the-art cultivation plant allows minimal use of resources like water and detergents.

As regards energy, including renewable electricity, we rely on our own photovoltaic system and efficient use of process waste heat in heating the building.

This means the red diamond amongst antioxidants is, in every aspect, a potent active agent from Styria produced in an ecologically sustainable manner.
