Biossance: The Cult Skincare Brand To Know

Biossance: The Cult Skincare Brand To Know

Biossance is one of the most popular, clean skincare brands to emerge in recent years, and the big news is it has just launched into Selfridges. Merging leading scientific research with transparent and sustainable ingredients, their products use ethically sourced squalane to hydrate, plump and resurface the skin. From quenching serums to gentle peels and oils, the brand has something for all ages and skin types. Even better, SL readers have the chance to try it out for free. Here’s what you need to know, including how you can try the brand for free…

Each Product Is As Clean As Possible

Biossance formulates all its products by following strict guidelines – most of which have been set by European regulators. Put simply, this means they omit over 2,000 ingredients from their products, with only the most trustworthy and effiacious ingredients making the final cut, ensuring you get the very best (and most gentle) results every time. Each formula is dermatologically tested and non-comedogenic (non-pore-clogging), so all skin types can get involved, without fear of breakouts or irritation. It doesn’t stop at clean ingredients either – their packaging is entirely recyclable, so you never get any of that throwaway guilt. 

The Key Ingredient Is Squalane 

What sets the brand apart is its ingredient innovation, included in all Biossance products. Known for creating the first 100% sugarcane-derived squalane through biotechnology (squalane previously was harvested from shark's livers), Biossance's version mimics our skin's natural moisture. In turn, this provides weightless and restorative hydration, while delivering other ingredients  – like radical-fighting vitamin C – to the skin more effectively. 

Biossance Is Scientifically-Approved 

The brand was created by the same scientists who discovered a cure for malaria – so it’s safe to say the products are not only rigorously tested, but also approved at the highest standard. But despite their high-performing and potent ingredients, they’re still gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. Now more accessible than ever, you can find their products in Selfridges stores across London, Manchester and Birmingham, as well as online

The Brand Is Committed To Change 

Determined to lead the way on both efficacy and sustainable practices, Biossance continues to push forward with innovation to maintain its high-standard and brand ethos. “We are deeply rooted in science and have set out to prove that with clean skincare, you truly can get the most efficacious, clinically-proven formulas without compromising the health of our bodies or the planet. With sustainability at the heart of everything we do, we have pledged to be zero waste by 2025,” says Biossance President Catherine Gore. It’s this commitment that’s led the brand to partner with Selfridges, supporting the retailer's Project Earth Movement – an initiative which aims to promote sustainability and change the way we shop for good.
