If we consider that about a million microorganisms may exist in just one millilitre of seawater, we can only imagine how diverse marine ecosystems can be. This great biodiversity has attracted scientists to study the different species of microorganisms inhabiting in the oceans.

Their role in the ecosystems, how they interact with each other and with other marine species, and how they survive and adapt to the environment, help us to understand our evolution and identify environmental shifts. Hence, marine science is a key pillar in the research field.

Research and innovation are close travel companions that help push the limits of the cosmetic industry in pursuit of novel active ingredients that meet the ever-changing market demands. Companies constantly come up with novel mechanisms of action, efficacy claims, origins, and even cutting-edge technology. Yet what about discovering a new marine microorganism?
