No Compromise Beauty™

Biossance is a clean beauty brand that uses biotechnology to create skincare products that are effective, sustainable and safe. We formulate with a No Compromise™ approach-proudly blacklisting over 2,000 potentially harmful ingredients. Only the most trustworthy and powerful make our final cut.

Our Story

It all began inside our Berkeley labs in 2003, where through biology and modern technology a plant-derived cure for malaria was created. Since then, over 120 million royalty-free treatments have been given, saving lives and communities. Inspired to keep positively changing the world through biotech, we turned to the ingredients people use on their bodies every day. And we asked how we could do better. Drawing on our rich history of science and sustainability, we create skincare products that are incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment. Because our standards for clean beauty are high-and our standards for ourselves are even higher.

Biossance products are available at Biossance.com and Sephora<
