The Spanish biotechnology company has developed biotechnological platforms that are designed to screen and combine natural ingredients in order to generate novel dermocosmetic products with synergistic activities. They are looking for ingredient manufacturers, formulators or other agents and subcontractors, interested in discover new cosmetic products, based on natural extracts, or interested in studying their biological activity in order to jointly develop new products or just test them.
The Spanish biotechnology company is an International firm focused on the development of novel dermocosmetics based on natural products with added value.
In the global cosmetic market there are more than 10.000 active ingredients available to commercialization and in more than 90% of the cases the product is a result of combinations of these ingredients.
In almost all of the existing cosmetics the ingredients combinations are made empirically and based on public and known data. As the products in this market are valuable for 4 to 5 years it is needed a constantly renewal of formulated products before their commercialisation. That is the reason why R&D is essential to produce new and more effective dermocosmetics that must be formulated faster and cheaper.
In this sense, the company will give formulations based on a strong R&D to its clients. They have developed pioneering technological platforms in vitro and in silico. The coordinated use of such platforms pave the way to select the best combinations of natural ingredients to develop high quality cosmetic products with superior activities.
These platforms used to generate cosmetics are technological platforms in vitro and in silico. The coordinated use of such platforms pave the way to select the best combinations of natural ingredients to develop high quality cosmetic products with superior activities.
First of them, is a bioinformatic solution that simulates functional artificial skin. It is a virtual tool to visualise the skin reaction on cosmetic actives or stress factors. Basically is a 3D skin simulator based on system biology paradigms and it is used to predict the efficacy, skin diffusion and penetration of theoretical skin care products built from a large library of ingredients.
On second hand, the ingredients combinatorial system is based on a platform used to identify novel combinations of individual ingredients, saving cost and time. Its competitive advantage lies in the optimization of costs and production time, as well as the achievement of high quality and performance products showing attractive organoleptic properties. The system implements an algorithm capable of calculating optimized ingredient blends for different applications, which include both the application originally requested by the customer as a series of sub-applications, which may emerge from the described combinations and are detected by the system.
The last one is an in vitro multiparametric platform that includes 30 key dermocosmetic targets. Novel targets are always on the process of validation to be included in this platform. Therefore, a comprehensive screening system has been developed to identify novel biological activities for cosmetic and skin care products development.
The biological data obtained in this last platform is analyzed in the Ingredient combinatorial system platform to identify synergistic activities between individual ingredients and to develop novel dermocosmetic products with superior activity for specific applications.
They are looking for:
- Cosmetic Ingredient Manufacturers and formulators who need to know how their ingredients work and how to combine them to develop new cosmetic formulations/cosmetic products. And the envisaged cooperation with these partners should be through a subcontracting agreement, so the biotechnology company would test their formulations in the platforms and would help them to find the best ingredients combinations in their concrete cosmetic field.
- Cosmetic Agents who are looking for new cosmetic products to introduce in the market, and Cosmetic Extract Developers who are seeking new commercial cosmetic ingredients. The cooperation should be through a joint venture or services agreement so the biotechnology company could provide its expertise and platforms to find the new products.
The company offers these disruptive technological platforms applied in the dermocosmetic sector, contributing to save on time and costs as are in silico as well as in vitro developed platforms. The coordinated use of such platforms paves the way to select the best combinations of natural ingredients to develop high quality cosmetic products with superior activities.
Compared to other developments, those do not have into account the specific biologic activities of each natural ingredient. The activity of any extract depends on many variables like the plant origin, cultivation conditions and also the method to obtain the extract (ethanol, acetone, supercritical CO2, watery, etc,,,). So there are many variables among the extracts given by different providers. This company can find differences among the same extract but provided by different suppliers thanks to the platforms developed. That is the reason why they do not only obtain new cosmetic products scientifically defined in vitro and in silico, but it is going to do it reducing costs and time. It is a pioneering solution in this sector, that is going to allow cosmetic commercial organizations to get products with the highest quality and proven clinical efficacy.
