• Solasta® Astaxanthin


    How is Solasta® Made

    Natural, non-genetically modified strains of Haematococcus pluvialis are cultivated in enclosed photobioreactors using purified water to produce algal biomass used in the production of Solasta®. The algae are harvested by centrifugation and the astaxanthin is extracted using super-critical carbon dioxide to ensure the safety, quality, and consistency of Solasta®.  No pesticides, GMOs, or animal derived materials are used in the production of Solasta®.

    Solasta® is extracted in the USA.
