Biotechnology & Sustainability
How Our Biotechnology Is Sustainable
Our EPC Factor® allow us to reduce, sometimes by more than a 100-fold, the amount of natural resources otherwise needed, ensuring a sustainable relationship between ignae and the delicate environment around it. Being a biotechnology-led skincare company, it´s not just a way of developing more powerful products, but also a way to use Nature’s gifts responsibly.
At ignae, we embrace the 12 principles of green chemistry and use biotechnology in order to have a minimal impact on our beautiful, unspoilt archipelago. To avoid the intensive use of the natural botanical and marine resources, we created our proprietary clean and vegan advanced liposomes and supercritical extraction technologies that require only small quantities of plants and algae to deliver high performance results.
With these proprietary technologies, we are able to use the Azore's best botanical products with minimal consumption of biomass, energy, and other precious resources. This enables ignae to develop transformational products without affecting biodiversity or the natural ecosystem.
