INNOVATION STARTS WITH

NEW INGREDIENTS

We're scientists working with the power of biology to create a new future in beauty and personal care.

OUR TECHNOLOGY UNLOCKS PREVIOUSLY INACCESSIBLE INGREDIENTS WITHOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT.

For decades, beauty and personal care products have extracted ingredients from petrochemicals, plants or animals. Using biotechnology shaped by our interdisciplinary approach, we can create existing and new ingredients from nature ethically and sustainably while guaranteeing consistency and purity.

Transformative
Innovation

We are scientists, biologists, and engineers working with the best tools in automation, analytics, and software to establish the innovation driven future the industry deserves.

Performance without the footprint.

By fundamentally changing what and how ingredients are made, we are creating products that perform without taking a toll on the environment.

An ecosystem to build together

Let’s have open conversations to lead the industry into the future we want to create. With more transparency and voices around the table, we can learn and innovate together.

BUILT AROUND BIOLOGY, NOT CHEMISTRY.

Throughout its history, the beauty industry has relied on industrial chemistry to mix and remix the same fundamental groups of ingredients. Unlike chemistry, biology can self assemble, replicate, and repair. We are working with these unique properties to reinvent product formulations and fuel the next generation of brand creatives and storytellers.
