Our biofilm technology is ideally suited for producing hydrophobic molecules like retinol. We can manufacture molecules that are challenging to create via traditional fermentation, making it a compelling high-value product to demonstrate our platform’s potential.
Through this innovative process, we can provide companies with a path to sustainable products without compromising on cost or performance.
What is Retinol?
A form of vitamin A used in anti-aging cosmetics, retinol is proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin firmness, and even out age spots.
Retinol currently sells for $3000/kg or more at volumes greater than 1,000 mt/yr. We strive to dramatically reduce the cost of retinol production and improve product quality and reliability – all while using our environmentally friendly process.
