Sacred Patch™ is based on BASF’s MicroPatch ® technology to harness the potential of the valuable algal extract sacran. Sacred Patch™ works in three ways: it offers an instantly perceptible uplift in mood once applied to the skin, helps to soothe sensitive skin, and provides strong moisturization properties.

Promoting mental health has become the top priority for many consumers. With its new Sacred Patch™, BASF is helping manufacturers develop effective skin care products that promote emotional well-being while addressing common signs of sensitive skin.

Sacran, a prodigious megasugar, is extracted from Aphanothece sacrum, a distinctive blue-green alga from the cyanobacteria family that can be found growing in the precious, volcanic aquatic environment Japanese Island of Kyushu. In Sacred Patch, the large molecules of Sacran are entrapped in our Molecular Patch technology for an ingredient that provides soothing for irritated skin, moisturization, and a velvety sensory profile.
