Beauty That’s Beyond Clean
In 2003, our scientists began a project that would change the world.
From inside our Berkeley labs, they developed patented technology that allowed us to create an accessible cure for malaria. Today, over 120 million royalty-free treatments have been successfully given thanks to this technology.
Inspired to continue using innovative biotechnology to make a positive impact on the world, we turned to skincare—and the ingredients people put on their faces and bodies every day.
Drawing on our rich history of science and sustainability, we create skincare that is incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment or animals. Because the products you use make a difference for your health and the health of the planet.
Our Sustainability Leads the Industry:
Our Squalane Saves 2 Million Sharks Every Year
Our 100% sugarcane-derived squalane is ethically and sustainably sourced, keeping millions of sharks safe from liver harvesting. The human body produces its own version of squalane called squalene, but the amount made and retained decreases as you get older.
Biossance found a way to produce squalane as safely and effectively as the body does. Our squalane comes from 100% plant-based, renewable sugarcane, then bio-fermented to create a beautiful end result—highly stable, totally sustainable and eco-friendly squalane. Squalane is the skin’s best moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types.
Clean Ingredients and Clean Formulas
We ban over 2,000 ingredients that are known to be toxic to you and the environment. All of our ingredients are also ethically and sustainably sourced. Certified by EWG, PETA, Leaping Bunny
We choose tubes and bottles that are completely recyclable, and outer cartons made from renewable sugarcane paper, without inks or dyes that could affect recyclability.
In partnership with CarbonFund.org, we plant trees and fund reforestation efforts to offset every order shipped, saving 22 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year.
Green Lab Certification
All Biossance formulations are developed in a facility certified by My Green Lab—the gold standard for laboratory sustainability practices for responsible usage of energy, waste, and water.
PARTNERS IN CHANGE
We collaborate with international organizations like Oceana, Direct Relief, Black Lives Matter, and the Breast Cancer Prevention Partnership to educate on critical environmental, social, and legislative issues and advocate for change.
By July 2020 we’ve donated $413K.
We believe that clean beauty can be sustainable beauty—
and that the earth is worth it.
