Project mission

BIOCOSM focuses on endorsing an innovative chemical process in cosmetic industry with an environmental and economically sustainable approach, thanks to the use of enzymes derived from natural sources such as glycerophosphoinositols (GPIs) and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (HVPs). The advantage of that procedure is to combine an alternative green method with the recognized anti-inflammatory activities of the selected enzymes. From a circular economy perspective, the aim is to employ the waste of soybean and sunflower oilseed extraction in the industrial production of cosmetic outputs that can be implemented on large scale to reach the final consumer.
