Marine biotechnology applied to cosmetics and healthcare products development


The purpose of this course is to enable students to consolidate knowedge about the corporate world of cosmetics. Cosmetic products represent more than 80 billion of turnover in Europe. This is an area in perpetual change and renewal. In fact, the cosmetic products marketing is regulated by a European directive which was introduced in July 2013. Companies have the obligation to declare the composition of all their products, and, the trend is that Increasingly substances are banned because of their toxic power. Many companies are looking for alternative solution and thus are turning to marine products in order to replace toxic synthetic molecules and because it attracts some customers as well.
This is why companies recruit more scientists with knowledge of the marine biotechnology, and raw materials needed to make these cosmetic products.
