Synergr8 is a latest discovery in cosmeceutical field. The polyhedral-shape like structure with high viscosity and long-term stability is a highlight of the latest invention of natural hybrid sunscreen in cosmeceutical. Synergr8 is design as a hybrid cosmeceutical skincare invention consist of modified fish bone derived from Sardiniella fimbriata (tamban) and extract of Melaleuca cajaputi (gelam). Rapid development in the fish processing industry has led large amounts of waste every year around the world. However, waste from fish bone contains hydroxyapatite (HAp) which is fishery products have also been explored in total including fish bones and fish scales such as the 100% usage of palm oil. Certain fish bones have an attractive added value which contain HAp that can potentially be used as a hybrid sunscreen. Therefore, Sardinella fimbriata bone has been discovered and synthesized to be prepared in newest applications, particularly in cosmeuticals as sunscreen. Fish bones have been characterized with Nuclear Magnetic Resonance(NMR), Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and UV-Vis. Results obtained clearly indicated that the HAp existence in waste of Sardinella fimbriata bone with addition of FeCI and Melaleuca cajaputi extracts exhibit high Sun Protection Factor (SPF) value compared to conventional sunscreen. Thus, the utilization of waste from the fish bone not only produce value-added products from low-cost resources, but also help in reducing pollution to the environment and preserve from global warming. Hence, Syner8 formulation on the synthesized fish bone is designed as a new hybrid innovation in cosmeceutical products and boost up the efficiency of skin prevention from UV radiation.
