Biossance Rebrands & Introduces Sustainable Moisturizing Products with Squalane

SpecialChem - March 10th, 2017
EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- Biossance has introduced a weightless gel probiotic moisturizer designed to reduce the effects of stress, calm skin, and maintain a healthy skin biome along with the other products.

Biossance has entered Sephora with a new look. Biossance products draw on the brand's rich heritage of science and sustainability to create highly efficient, non-toxic skincare that is safe for the skin and the environment.

Sustainable Solutions


Known for pioneering the first renewably-sourced 100% plant-based squalane, the mega-moisture molecule that keeps skin healthy and hydrated, Biossance has made a commitment to providing sustainable solutions for the personal care industry. In 2016, the brand launched its No Compromise™ campaign underpinning the core of the brand, which bans 1,500+ ingredients the EU does not allow in cosmetics products and ingredients with safety and environmental concerns.

Safer Formulations with Green Packaging


Now, its packaging will reflect the brand's dedication to creating safe, eco-friendly products. Each outer box containing a Biossance product is now made from renewable and sustainable sugarcane fiber. In addition, each product is now available in elegant clean green bottles with pure petal labels and copper detailing to evoke the luxe yet earth-friendly vibe of the formulations within.

Additionally, Biossance will introduce a weightless gel probiotic moisturizer designed to reduce the effects of stress, calm skin, and maintain a healthy skin biome along with the following products:

  • 100% Squalane Oil: A weightless multipurpose oil that instantly hydrates locking in essential moisture.
  • Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil: An antioxidant rich cleansing oil that gently removes long wear makeup and impurities.
  • Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil: A luxurious face oil that brightens, firms and evens skin tone and texture.
  • Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer: A weightless gel moisturizer that hydrates, brightens and balances skin.
  • Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel: A weightless eye gel that reduces puffiness and dark circles.
