As a sustainable, natural and efficacy-oriented skincare brand, we are constantly looking for innovative actives that offer the perfect combination of natural origin and proven effectiveness. As a powerful antioxidant, ASTACOS OL50® combines all these criteria. The regional production in Styria, the opportunity to visit the production site and the comprehensive expert knowledge with which all our questions were answered were additional highlights for us.

We were looking for a powerful natural antioxidant and anti-ageing ingredient derived from algae. This is how we discovered ASTACOS® OL50. We didn't let its intense colour frighten us, on the contrary, we used it to our advantage to give the product a natural colour that remains stable over time.

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

We use the red diamond ASTACOS® OL50 in our „Keep Me Young Facial Cream“ from dr.oh Clean Performance Skin Care. The natural astaxanthin stands out for its proven effectiveness, surpassing that of other antioxidants. We value this active ingredient not only because of its remarkable power, but also because of its sustainable production. It also gives our face cream its characteristic coral colour.

Documented Sustainability

Since BDI’s founding, we have been focusing on our commitment to sustainability and regionality. . Our entire plant operates on one hundred per cent renewable electricity. To produce our natural astaxanthin through algae cultivation, we exclusively use biogenic CO2 obtained as a byproduct 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, ensuring sustainable production of astaxanthin, the red diamond, from algae.



Regarding 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.
