Innovation at the heart of our products
Our innovation process is the heart of our strategy and allows to offer our customers the best-in-class natural ingredients for their cosmetic applications. Our innovation consists of 4 main steps:
- Ethical sourcing: we take inspiration from nature to find effective raw materials that we source in the respect of regulations and local populations.
- Differenciating deciphering: we identify molecules of interest and their mechanism of action to develop the best-in-class ingredients.
- Efficient processing: we are a leader in plant extraction, and we keep improving our industrial process in order to increase efficiency and reduce our impact on the environment.
- Smart positioning: We feel the times for today and tomorrow and develop ingredients that will provide unique benefits meeting customer needs.
Transparency and traceability are a priority to ensure we comply with all regulations. ACT4S.com (Active Cosmetic Trust for SEQENS) is the name of the traceability solution developed by SEQENS based on the Blockchain technology to guarantee in real-time that each step from the plant sourcing to the final release of the finished product complies with COSMOS referential.
Seqens Cosmetics Natural Ingredients offer
Natural Active Ingredients
The development of our active ingredients is based on 3 innovation platforms.
For years, SEQENS Cosmetics has found interest in the different factors to which our skin is exposed: the Exposome.
With the urban lifestyle, people are facing daily exposures such as pollution, tobacco smoke and UV rays which cause many side effects and skin is the primary interface impacted. SEQENS Cosmetics searched for natural solutions to fight against the effects of the exposome and developed botanical active ingredients to protect the skin from external aggressions.
Cell’intact: The buckwheat seed extract for urban skin. SEQENS Cosmetics proposes to bring new solutions to the Exposome through the Expobiota scientific concept: “Expo” for exposome, “biota” for skin flora .
SEQENS Cosmetics seeks to unlock well-aging mysteries. Our investigations focus on blue zones: regions recognized by scientists for the high proportion of healthy centenarians.
Evolu’age: the getto leaf extract from Okinawa Island. This well-aging solution acts as a slow-aging enhancer, a cell connection booster and skin complexion perfector.
SEQENS Cosmetics deciphers the structure of mega-sugars (exopolysaccharides) to predict their biological activities.
Glycuron 2.78: the 4 MDa megasugar active ingredient rich in uronic acid, from a Moorean biofermented source.
Collection of botanical extracts inspired by arts
SEQENS Cosmetics was naturally inspired by famous artworks to create natural ingredient collections illustrating masterpieces.
Mont Venturi Collection
Inspired by the painting “La Montagne Sainte-Victoire vue de Montbriand” by the French artist Paul Cézanne, this collection is an invitation for a walk near the Mountain Sainte-Victoire.
Inspired by this region and by the artist interpretation of this place, we have created a collection of 12 natural plant extracts. The plants from this collection typically grow in Provence.
The range « Terroir en Beauté” : France originated extracts
France is home to exceptional biodiversity and inspiring flora of more than 4,900 botanical species.
SEQENS Cosmetics has selected endemic species from French regions to develop its collection “Terroir en Beauté”
