Sederma Develops Sustainable Ingredients

February 17, 2011

Plant stem cell culture ideal for today's cosmetic formulations.

Sederma is not only about developing natural molecules of interest for the cosmetic industry. Its newest challenge is to produce them in quantities without causing any damage to the environment.

Therefore, Sederma has chosen Plant Cell Culture, which exploits the power of synthesis from vegetal stem cells, according to the company. This technology is an inexhaustible source of metabolites of interest with numerous benefits for:

Sustainability: natural environment preservation, no need for transportation, limited use of solvent, no biosphere destruction.

Safety and quality: No GMOs, no fertilizers, no pesticides, no preservatives, high quantity of selected phytochemicals.

Sourcing: No crops, no seasonality, no suppliers and unlimited availability.

In 2011, one of Sederma’s new products will be fully produced using this new technology—and it won’t stop here. The plant cell culture technology brings complete new aspects in the development of cosmetic active ingredients based on beneficial selected phytomolecules. That is the reason why Sederma has acquired a bench wave system bioreactor of 600L, which is the first to be commercialized in Europe.

In parallel, Sederma is developing a valuable know-how to offer advanced services and solutions to its customers thanks to a specialized scientific knowledge and industrial production expertise: optimization of culture conditions, selection and production of metabolites, analytical methods, generation of a callus bank and cryopreservation of cell lines.
