The Boticário Group wants to produce colours from microalgae

As consumers’ demand for sustainable and natural cosmetic products is skyrocketing, the industry is mobilized in the search for alternative sources for its inputs.

To this end, the Boticario Group signed a cooperation agreement with Embrapa Agroenergia. The objective of the project "Production of Dyes from Biotechnologies" is to look for new sources of obtaining colour from microalgae, fungi and bacteria by fermentative process.

"We believe in the capacity of the Brazilian market to innovate and in the synergies between technological research institutions and industrial companies. The cooperation agreement with Embrapa Agroenergia, with the support of Embrapii, puts these considerations in practice," the company said in a statement.

This initiative will be presented at the 8th Brazilian Congress of Industry Innovation, on the Embrapii stand, in São Paulo, on June 10 and 11, 2019.
