What is Biotechnology Skincare?

Biotechnology skincare is changing the game! Let’s deep dive into the future of health and beauty.

Discover the future of health and beauty with ground-breaking biotechnology skincare.

Effective and sustainable skincare? Count us in!

It was only a matter of time before technological advances started to have a tangible impact on the health and beauty industry. The best thing? Biotechnology skincare is good for the environment and good for us! Confused? Sit back and relax while we delve into what it is, how it works, and the impact it will have on the industry. We’ll also be revealing the brands that are already utilizing this cutting-edge tech in their product lines.

What is biotech beauty?

We know biotech beauty might sound pretty far-fetched right now, and perhaps even like something from the world of science fiction. But, it’s very much real, and it’s going to change our creams, serums, and our retinol game for the better!

Put simply, biotechnology combines biology (bio) with chemistry (tech). Once reserved for the medical sphere, this kind of technology is trickling its way into the ever-evolving health and beauty industry.

That means that skincare ingredients are made in laboratories, largely from expertly created blends of bacteria, yeast, and algae. These fusions are known as “nano factories” for cells, which then ferment, grow, and multiply. Well-known skincare compounds such as squalene, peptides, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and many more can all be produced in this way. Pretty smart, huh?

How is it sustainable?

Probably the biggest pull toward the movement is the fact that it’s an environmentally-friendly way to manufacture. Lab-produced skincare ingredients have a minimal carbon footprint when compared to traditional methods. Just think, producing even, natural, and plant-based active ingredients requires vast amounts of energy, water, and farmland. Not only that, but lab-made ingredients are far more reliable in terms of quality and therefore effectiveness, since they’re not affected by variables like seasonal changes.

How does it compare to clean beauty?

The clean beauty movement has also been huge in the health and beauty industry of late. Biotech beauty differs in the way that it shifts the focus onto what is going into our products, rather than what isn’t. Terms such as organic, natural, and vegan used in the clean beauty space aren’t legally-binding, whereas biotech beauty methods are both traceable and reliable.

Where can I get my hands on some?

You’ll be pleased to know that a whole host of brands have already started to embrace biotech methods in their skincare offerings. Here are some awesome suggestions:



  • Planet-loving vegan brand Biossance produces the super skin hydrator squalene using Brazilian cane sugar. The best part? They save over 2 million sharks per year in the process.


  • Biotech brand Codex’s silky Beauty Bia Facial Oil protects skin and locks in moisture, containing a range of skin-boosting actives such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and omega 3.
