“Innovate sustainably with blue biotechnology, and discover the secrets of the sea”

Covering 70% of Earth, oceans host the largest portion of all life on the planet. Marine organisms, which include algaes and marine plants, learn to adapt to the ocean’s extreme environmental conditions in order to survive. These marine organisms and their adaptations have a lot to offer for cosmetic products: powerful molecules, fresh water content and exceptional productivity.

Blue biotechnology is about discovering what the sea has to offer, in order to create innovative products, and in a sustainable way.

Come explore the submerged world, discover marine active ingredients, sustainable solutions and Seppic’s blue biotechnologies!
