Australian biotechnology company SkinDNA has developed a non-invasive and pain-free method to collect skin RNA samples which can be used to inform beauty consumers on the efficacy of their skin care products.
Late last year, Albert Dashi and Oliver Worsley took their patent-pending skin analysis patch and corresponding beauty app public with a soft launch. And still today, the two molecular biology PhDs are hopeful that Sequential Skin will be the future of...
The Boston, Massachusetts – based synthetic biology company, known in the beauty industry for its work with fragrance maker Robertet, has just announced $275 million in Series D funding and the opening of a new facility that promises to launch the company...
As September came to a close, Ginkgo opened a facility that changes the scale and scope of biotech ingredient and organism production exponentially. And, it’s at sites like this where tomorrow’s genetically engineered inputs for fragrance, cosmetics,...
Biotech innovations require industry-scale resources to get alternative ingredients for fragrance and personal care to market. As that market grows, synthetic DNA manufacturing, like what Twist Bioscience does, is in greater demand.
“Traceable tamper-proof technologies are badly in need today and have the potential to become universal if affordable and proven to be reliable,” says Kantha Shelke, Ph.D., scientist and principal at Corvus Blue LLC.
UC Berkeley scientists have taken proteins from nerve cells and created a biological version of a synthetic coating used in everyday liquids such as cosmetics, to keep small particles from clumping together.
Having developed devices that mimic genetic characteristics of human organs to assess the toxicity of chemical compounds, Harvard’s Wyss Institute has now set about making this technology available for scientists worldwide.
Researchers at Stanford University say they have discovered that a molecule crucial to stem cell function plays a major role in determining the different shades of hair color and have also demonstrated how color can be manipulated.
Scientists at Sederma & IRB have been working on ‘Senestem’, an ingredient that fades the signs of senescence (the body's natural process of deterioration with age) with a method they are describing as 'breakthrough', by targeting...
A group of scientists have discovered a way to trick algae's biological clock to remain in its daytime setting, which dramatically boosts the amount of valuable compounds that the marine plants can produce when they are grown in constant light.
Continuing its on-going research into skin care science and anti-ageing, Nivea product maker Beiersdorf has teamed up with the scientific network project AgeNet to study the effects of environmental factors responsible for skin ageing.
An online webinar will be held next week to highlight the important role that gene expression studies can play in the development of tailored topical products for the cosmetic and personal care market.
Recent biodiversity talks in Nagoya, Japan have clarified the scope for international legislation which is now set to cover research and development on the biochemical compounds present in plants, as well as their genetic resources.
The sequencing of the human genome has provided powerful new tools to investigate the effect of active ingredients on the body; but, there are limitations and these tools cannot replace tests in real people.
