Typical applications

The algae Odontella aurita belongs to the diatoms and is characterized by its distinctive shape and color. As the name aurita suggests, the diatom Odontella aurita has a yellowish-golden color in its living state.

The diatom Odontella aurita has been approved for Novel Food status and is used in food, dietary supplements, animal feed and cosmetics.

Of particular interest is its high content of protein and the omega-3 fatty acid EPA. In addition, the diatom Odontella aurita contains the carotenoid pigment fucoxanthin, which can be extracted from it.

Typical applications in the cosmetics industry:

Odontella aurita is rich in EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and other bioactive molecules such as pigments. The diatom reduces the formation of fat cells and blocks lipogenesis (serves to store unused food energy), so can have a special effect on cellulite and prevent skin aging.
