The biotech startup Interstellar Lab has announced its participation in the incubation program from L’Oréal Green Sciences Incubator.
The recently initiated incubation project between Interstellar Lab and L’Oréal Green Sciences Incubator is said to evolve around the shared belief that the future of beauty lies at the intersection of science, nature and technology.
Interstellar Lab develops, builds, and operates biofarming solutions to optimize plant cultivation and molecular composition on Earth and in space. The high environment modules developed by Interstellar Lab are said to enable sustainable, high-precision cultivation of high-value-added plants used by the natural ingredients, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food industries.
Interstellar Lab’s first product, BioPod, is an artificial intelligence-controlled biofarm that accelerates production cycles and increases the production of bioactive compounds in plants. BioPod is said to deliver a sustainable cultivation tool that anticipates the challenges of sourcing plants and the environmental impact of producing natural ingredients.
The incubated project supports L’Oréal for the Future’s commitments, specifically that by 2030, 95% of its ingredients will be bio-sourced, derived from abundant minerals or circular processes. Interstellar Lab and L’Oréal will be exploring the potential of BioPod to source a variety of molecules, active ingredients.
“L’Oréal is engaged in a transition that is profoundly changing how the beauty industry create and manufacture products. We are thrilled to collaborate with the world’s leading beauty player, using nature to redefine the future of sustainable beauty," shared Barbara Belvisi, founder and CEO at Interstellar Lab.
