INNOCOSM New ways of obtaining phytoactives for cosmetics
The goal of the Innocosm project is to develop innovative approaches in plant sourcing for the production of metabolites of interest to the cosmetic sector, by controlling production conditions in biotechnological systems or from co-products.
Enhancement of five emblematic Centre-Val de Loire plants to obtain phytoactives for cosmetics
This project is a response to the need for natural products derived from extraction from cultivated or harvested plants. The goal is to propose the establishment of plant resources derived either from innovative biotechnological systems based on in vitro culture or from the enhancement of plant co-products for the establishment of cosmetic ingredients. In particular, the project proposes to enhance five emblematic Centre-Val de Loire plants that are compatible with the so-called ‘China’ list for the manufacture of cosmetic products authorised for distribution on this market and chosen in agreement with the manufacturing partner EVONIK.
