A subsidiary of Croda, the British-based supplier of speciality chemicals, Sederma, dedicates itself to the development of sustainable cosmetic actives. In partnership with French biotechnology company, Alganelle, the team is creating an innovative concept for cosmetics through the production of natural molecules.
The French biotechnology company creates natural molecules from microalgae synthetic biology. Alganelle will bring this technology to its new partnership, which reportedly provides quality raw materials. These are sustainably obtained to respect the environment and biodiversity.
Sederma’s move from chemical synthesis to synthetic biology aims to develop cleaner productions of its best sellers. One of its ingredients is currently under biological synthesis development through Alganelle’s microalgae platform and is set for patent publication in August 2021.
