Going beyond “Natural” (Biotechnology and fermentation: the future of active ingredients)
Time: 15:00 - 15:30
Date: Wednesday 7th July
Biotechnological products and biotechnology as a marketing concept resonate with the consumer. Biotechnology as a science and a means of producing active ingredients for the cosmetic industry can be powerful and sustainable. At CLR Berlin, biotechnology has played a central role since the late 1970’s. In the early 1980’s, we launched our first active ingredient, a lysate of probiotic Bifidobacterium longum, based on close collaborations with universities in Berlin and Freiburg, Germany. Since then, the technology has evolved and we have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about fermentation of probiotic lactic acid-producing bacteria for the development of active ingredients for the skin. Today, CLR stands at the forefront of the probiotic technologies which are now so popular in the industry. In addition to these technologies, CLR has ventured out in getting the most out of other unicellular organisms as well. Our production processes and even our growth mediums are developed to fit the demands of the modern consumer. Our biotechnological products are sustainable, vegan and even Halal-certified, but, above all, they are extremely efficacious and safe. This presentation will go into some details on some of our biotechnologically obtained products.
