From Crop to Cream: Designing a Biobased Personal Care Platform

  • Stefano Facco, Novamont SpA,
  • Kaj Johnson, Method,
  • Emmanuel Petiot, DEINOVE

A transparent look at the journey of a sustainable biobased product from idea to product, beginning with its conception to its development as a commercial scale producer. Three companies will describe how they chose target products, developed differentiated ingredient brands, decided upon manufacturing scale-up strategies, and established sales & logistical channels. Forward looking questions will be discussed, including how biobased ingredients fit into the modern personal care landscape, how regulation and certifications are established, and what biotech is doing to lay the foundation for new normative standards in chemical product sustainability and environmental awareness, acting as true partners in developing future best practices for personal care products.
