Celebrating 5 Years of Innovative Beauty

Happy birthday to us—we’re turning five! We can’t believe how much we’ve accomplished (with the help of our amazing community) in these short years as a beauty brand. Not only have we developed an entire range of sustainable, science-based skincare that’s leading and innovating the industry of clean beauty, but we’ve also won the awards and received the community praise to back it all up. From our sustainable 100% Squalane Oil multitasker that started it all, to the new Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum (our most innovative product yet), we now have a collection of cult-worthy formulas for every skin type and every skin concern all while remaining true to our commitment to sustainability. In short, we’ve come a long way as brand—and we’ve only just begun.

To celebrate our five incredible years together as a passionate skincare brand and community, we’ve put together a breakdown of some of our most notable moments and a sneak peek of the best that’s yet to come.

Formulas Worth the Hype

Our products are bestsellers for a reason: Our scientists have done the work, the research, and the testing in our very own Berkley lab to create formulas packed with ingredients that are effective and gentle on the skin and the planet. With 64 awards from the biggest beauty magazines and organizations and 18.5K 5-star reviews from our skincare-passionate community, we have the numbers and accolades to back up all the hype our products rightfully receive in the last five years. Some of our most proud recognitions include Marine Algae Eye Cream and Rose Vegan Lip Balm for Allure’s Best of Beauty Award, Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen for Self’s Healthy Beauty Awards, Elderberry Jelly Cleanser for Glamour Beauty’s Best Cleanser Award, and Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum for Glamour Beauty’s Best Exfoliator. And most recently, our bestselling 100% Squalane Oil and Omega Repair Cream received the seal of approval from the National Eczema Association—further solidifying the versatility and effectiveness of our clean ingredient-packed formulas. Our products are clinically proven and universally loved by all skin types—it’s no wonder why a Biossance product is sold every 15 seconds.

Growing Community of Skincare Lovers

Because our products are tested and proven to be as effective as we say they are, we’ve managed to grow a loyal community that not only shares our love for our clean formulas, but also our passion for ocean conservation and creating a more sustainable planet. Our community is now 810K and growing, doing sustainability work alongside us (like adopting 8.5K sharks) to keep our oceans clean. Because we share this common goal, our community is constantly inspiring us as a brand to evolve through education and awareness. We will continue to relaunch and develop new products with our shared passion at the forefront: formulas that keep our skin and planet happy and clean. Our passionate community is also responsible for our place in 12 retailers across 14 countries—making our innovative skincare and sustainability mission known and loved across the globe.

Industry-Lead Science & Sustainability

In our five years as a clean beauty brand, we’ve stayed true to our passion for clean ingredients and sustainability. Every product we sell undergoes nine layers of clinical testing and is EWG-Verified to assure that it’s gentle and effective while remaining free of chemicals of concern. On top of that, our scientists are constantly innovating formulas that are proven to perform without sacrificing our mission as a brand. For example, our new Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum, one of our most innovative formulas to date, features an innovative moisture complex for instant and long-lasting hydration. The just-launched anti-aging serum is packed with powerful ingredients—including copper peptide, paracress extract, and rapid plumping complex—that remain gentle on the environment while being effective at revealing bouncy, hydrated, and plump skin. We also launched our Caffeine Toning Body Cream—packed with caffeine sourced from green coffee beans and squalane derived from sustainable sugarcane—to deeply moisturize while visibly firming and toning the skin.

So, what’s next for Biossance? Be on the lookout for new launches of your soon-to-be favorite products, more value-packed sets of the formulas you know and love, and even more passion and innovation for a more sustainable planet through the best clean beauty out there. We can’t wait for you to see all that we have in store.
