“I believe that working with biology and bacteria is really the wave of the future,” Alison Cutlan, co-founder of Brooklyn, New York – based biophile skincare, tells Cosmetics Design.
The proprietary fermentation process that’s at the core of the biophile brand ensures the ingredients in the water phase of each product formulation are more active and more able to penetrate the skin, says Cutlan, adding that “it also has a probiotic action on the skin.”
And importantly, given the challenges of formulating with bio-based inputs and of meeting consumer expectations for clean beauty: “These ferments are fully biological; and they are self-preserving.”
