The sources of plant cells are unique plants that are rare and difficult to source in nature using traditional techniques, mainly due to overexploitation of the natural resources. These plants are rich in biologically active compounds great for cosmetic formulations
Popover image
Through plant biotechnology we tackle the biggest challenges that cosmetic industry is facing today - the need for better standardised, sustainably produced, effective and consistent active botanical ingredients, including those from scarce difficult to farm plants.
