In pursuit of more sustainable, sophisticated, efficient, and innovative formulas, some cosmetics companies are moving away from animal-based ingredients to plant-based ones. Others are opting for lab-based biotechnology in their extraction and creation of ingredients.
Mathias Fleury, head of actives at Givaudan Active Beauty, says beauty is entering an exciting era of biotech, as the next three to five years remained a ‘complete open environment’.
Aganovic says biotechnology “ethically and sustainably unfolded the entire tree of life.” Its ability to harness both sophistication and performance in developing new products is on a whole new transformative level. This implies talking about beauty through the lens of expressive biology.
