For years, humans have used biotechnology to make useful products and ingredients in a laboratory setting. More recently, biotech ingredients have been added to skincare, transforming it into a cleaner and more sustainable space.
Modern technology has always played a big part in the way we create our products at Sepai. We combine nature and science to deliver safe and effective luxury products.
What is biotechnology?
Ingredients created by biotechnology are a combination of microorganisms and engineered DNA of the microbes, a mix between active ingredients and laboratory microbes (yeast, bacteria, etc.).
Biotechnology makes it possible to have ingredients with important active properties through sophisticated biofermentation.
How does biotechnology help your skin and the world?
Biotech skincare ingredients can transform your skincare routine and can be better for the environment at the same time.
As a result of biotechnology, the beauty space has produced ingredients with better quality control, at higher reliability, and with a lower negative impact on the environment. Products with biotech ingredients often are more effective.
Additionally, creating ingredients through this process has made it possible to develop and use plant-based versions of otherwise animal-derived ingredients, like in the case of squalane.
Lab-produced substances don’t take up valuable farmland, water, and energy, reducing the carbon footprint associated with some plant-derived ingredients. Also, biotech skincare is free of unwanted irritants and pesticides that can be used to grow natural ingredients.
While the term may raise questions about its safety, biotech skincare ingredients are engineered to be as safe as their natural counterparts, the process even allows for more rigorous testing, making these substances more effective and controlled than ever. Unlike harmful chemicals, biotechnology comes from nature and gives back to it.
As always, Sepai is dermatologist tested and does not test the security of the products on subjects with no decision capacity.
