BIO-COLL@GEN
(RE)ACTIVATING THE BODY’S NATURAL COLLAGEN PRODUCTION

Using a deep understanding of molecular biology and fermentation processes, we engineer yeast strains to produce Bio-Coll@gen™, which has been shown to stimulate collagen types I and III production in human skin cells. Collagen I and III are the main structural proteins found in the skin and other connective tissues. Type I collagen creates the matrix of the skin while type III collagen modulates skin elasticity and, therefore, they have a key role in the skin aging process and skin appearance. Collagen III proteins are notoriously difficult to extract and very costly. By growing these proteins from yeast, we bypass the conventional animal-based extraction methods and provide the cosmetics industry with a more sustainable and efficacious building block for beauty products.

Clean Beauty

Bio-Coll@gen™ promotes the skin’s natural ability to produce more type III collagen, offering anti-aging benefits and eliminating the need for potentially harmful products. This is both an ecological and molecular leap forward for the entire beauty industry.

Natural

Bio-Coll@gen™ is a protein that is identical in sequence to human type III collagen, which is most prevalent in youthful skin, and when skin ages, collagen decreases. This protein stimulates the body’s own collagen production for both collagen I & III, eliminating the need for animal-derived or synthetic collagen and other additives.

ETHICAL,
ANIMAL-FREE, VEGAN

More than half of beauty consumers seek products that are sustainable and animal-free. Of the 15 most sought-after beauty ingredients, collagen is the only one still sourced from animals such as cows, pigs, poultry, and fish. Modern Meadow Bio-Coll@gen™ eliminates the need for animal-sourcing of collagen while promising better results.

Safe, Sustainable

As global demand for collagen grows, so does its environmental impact. Bovine collagen, the most common source available in the industry, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and risks xenogenic disease transfer, as well as allergic immune reactions. Bio-Coll@gen™ offers the beauty industry a long-overdue alternative to petrochemical, synthetic, or animal-derived inputs.

Simple, Traceable

Our Bio-Coll@gen™ is produced with the same fermentation processes used to produce beer and wine. It’s a simple, traceable production process using sustainable feedstock with no odor or color. Our close relationship with development partners and production facilities allows brands partnering with Modern Meadow to feel confident knowing our products are 100% traceable from "Lab-to-Brand”. It’s also easy to formulate and ideal for all skin types.
