As scientists first, we have always been curious about the unharnessed potential of botanicals. This curiosity drives us to search the world, discovering novel and natural alternatives to toxic chemicals, with the mission of finding better and safer solutions for skin health.
Everything that we do is based on rigorous academic research, and we believe that science has the power to transform our beauty dreams and aspirations into reality. Rather than simply publishing papers in scientific journals, we take it one step further, harnessing the value of our academic research in the development of amazing technologies. These in turn power our simple, yet effective skincare products.
It's a long journey from scientific discovery to a product on the shelf, but our curiosity and scientific integrity keep us motivated to continue our path of innovation and boundless discovery.
While science informs our perspective at Acaderma, our passion for the planet and people are at the heart of our business. We are currently working together with an NGO in Africa to reimbue traditional plants (like kinkeliba, an antioxidant-rich shrub grown in the Sahara) with new purpose and economic value, as well as establish more sustainable farming practices. By infusing these powerful-yet-untapped ingredients into our products, we are able to provide local women with a new set of skills and a stable income.
