Partnership for synthetic biology
Sederma has announced a new partnership with Alganelle, an innovative French biotechnology company who implement microalgae synthetic biology for the sustainable development and production of natural molecules.
Alganelle’s disruptive technology provides very high-quality raw material, safer and obtained from sustainable processes that respect the environment and biodiversity.
Sederma is focused on the move from chemical synthesis to synthetic biology for a cleaner production of its best sellers. Also, Sederma’s expertise in peptide science for cosmetic applications, combined with Alganelle unique know-how to engineer microalgae used as photosynthetic cell factories will allow the production of cosmetic active ingredients of the future. This common project of biological synthesis of one of Sederma’s ingredient with Alganelle’s optimised microalgae platform is in the development phase and a patent will be published end of August this year.
