TWB workshop: Bioproduction of high value compounds for cosmetic industry

  • INSA avenue de rangueil 135 Toulouse France

From synthetic biology to biocatalysis

Biotechnological processes (enzymatic synthesis of biobased chemicals and the fermentative production of biocatalysts or other metabolic products) are becoming core technologies in all industry sectors, energy, materials, foods, pharmacetucials.
Biotechnology in the cosmectics industry can be viewed from different perspectives:

  • development of new cost-effective and environment friendly production processes, as alternatives to chemical processes. Moreover, combining synthetic biology with industrial fermentation technology is used to produce pure active compounds which were traditionally extracted from plant tissues.
  • creation of high performance compounds. For example, biocatalysis can be used to bring additional functionalities to cosmetics compounds, delivering higher value to the industry and superior end-user performance.
