Biossance™, the consumer beauty brand from Amyris, Inc., the US integrated renewable products company, announced its planned launch in Sephora’s retail stores where the brand’s expansive line of high-performance skin care products will be available to consumers. The rollout to initial participating stores will begin in February 2017 and coincide with launching on Sephora online. Additional in-store and online marketing activities with Sephora to highlight the Biossance brand shortly following launch are planned.
“We are excited to launch with Sephora in the coming months and look forward to a strong partnership with them in the years to come. We expect this partnership combined with our strong growth will more than double our revenue in 2017,” said Caroline Hadfield, Senior Vice President, Personal Care, at Amyris. “Amyris and Sephora share similar philosophies when it comes to innovation, sustainability, and responsibility while providing efficacious products and we are delighted by their support of our brand.”

“Biossance uses innovative biotechnology to create skincare products that are incredibly effective, sustainable and safe”. In its Berkeley-born labs 100% plant-based squalane was created sustainably from sugarcane. “Biossance formulates with a No Compromise™ approach, proudly blacklisting over 2,000 ingredients that are potentially harmful to you or the planet”, Amyris claims. “Pioneering sustainable beauty through biotechnology, Biossance makes sure only the most trustworthy and powerful ingredients make the final cut”.
