Waste avoidance has many aspects, e.g. recycling of potential waste in the food industry, but also waste minimization and energy saving (e.g. locally produced raw materials), use of by-products of the food industry, which are used through special upcycling technologies to create efficient and sustainable substances for the production of high-performance cosmetics. Various products can be made based on upcycled materials. There are also product concepts that enable water and energy savings in production. This helps to reduce the recycling load in our environment holistically. Residual materials that can no longer be used in food production provide raw materials that, with high technology, become raw materials for premium cosmetics. In combination with fats, oils and waxes that come from upcycling processes, there are possibilities for multifunctional products in holistic body care. Using formulation examples for different product forms, it is shown how raw materials from No Waste concepts can form the complete basis for sustainable products.
