Over 90% of 500+ polymer ingredients have no suitable biogenic replacement.Natural biopolymers are random and not designed to replace a highly engineered synthetic polymer.
As young PhD scientists with young children, we have experienced both the amazing power of science but also the horrible impact on our planet from human activity over the past few decades.
However, we remain optimistic that purpose-rooted human ingenuity and the power of technology can be combined to become catalysts for meaningful change and impact.
One such issue we are dealing with as humanity is single-use plastics. The multi-trillion dollar consumer goods market globally is full of intentionally added and often invisible microplastics into everyday products like shampoos, skin creams, and home care. They help improve performance, shelf-life and appearance. Even the ‘shine’ on the hair from shampoos/conditioners comes from silicon added to shampoos and conditioners, which gets flushed down into our water systems after the shower. These microplastics and polymer ingredients end up inside our food, water and even skin! Therefore, starting 2027, the EU is banning 500+ varieties of intentionally added microplastics and polymer ingredients, of which ]90% have no alternatives. Other regions are sure to follow.
We feel that rather than fighting against nature, we should let nature lead the way! Nature has been refining its chemistry and biology for billions of years, and we have much to learn from it. Therefore, we have successfully developed fully biodegradable, plant-derived ingredients that can replace harmful microplastic and polymer ingredients found in a range of products without compromising performance or cost. We leverage the power of our proprietary AI-based system to custom-manufacture bio-based polymers for companies, helping them accelerate speed to market and meet regulatory timelines without suffering from lost revenue.
Our innovative products are not only sustainable but also meet the high standards of the industry, with several large multinationals in the FMCG industry working with us already. We believe that by working together, we can create a better and more sustainable future for all.
