Grant Industries business BCR BioComponent Research has expanded its product offering by entering into a partnership with Aethera Biotech to bring COSMOS-approved actives to the US and Canada personal care markets.
Aethera Biotech is an Italian company that focuses on plant-based solutions to drive innovation in cosmetics and nutraceuticals.
The Vicenza firm’s CROP biotechnological platform provides a non-GMO and alternative option to conventional farming methods, being able to produce potentially infinite quantities of actives through the power of plant cells.
The platform enables the creation of safe and consistently high-quality phytocomplexes for use in various personal care applications.
These products are made from plant-based materials and are guaranteed to meet high standards of quality, effectiveness, and safety.
“The Aethera team is thrilled to start this new and important collaboration with such an excellent partner as BCR, longing to spread innovation in the American cosmetic sector through our biotech plant cell ingredients,” said Aethera Biotech chief executive Daniele Baghi.
“At BCR, we have a skilled team and the support of Grant Industries. We are certain that Aethera's cutting-edge materials will blend seamlessly with our existing portfolio. Our business ethos is centred around 'Science Meets Nature,' so partnering with Aethera was a natural choice, given their focus on creating potent plant-based actives”, said Grant Industries’ and BCR Marketing Manager Naomi Bedford.
“We look forward to bringing our powerful and updated portfolio to clients this year and beyond,” she added.
