Careers at Biossance

An Amyris company

Work with Us

We’re the leader of clean, sustainable beauty.

Drawing on our rich history of science, Biossance is pioneering sustainable beauty through biotechnology. We formulate clean and nontoxic, sustainable skincare using the highest standards in our industry, that is incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment or animals. 

Our standards for clean beauty are high, and our standards for ourselves are even higher: only the most trustworthy and powerful ingredients are used in our products. We’re committed to transparency and proudly blacklist over 2,000+ toxic ingredients. Today, we are creating 100% plant-based squalane skincare line made from better, purer ingredients that are good for the planet. 

What is Squalane?

We sustainably produce squalane, the mega-moisturizing molecule that is the foundation for every product we create. The human body produces its own version, but the amount made and retained in the skin decreases over time. Our squalane is derived in an eco-friendly way, coming from 100% plant-based, renewable sugarcane, bio-fermented to be highly stable and sustainable while it weightlessly locks in moisture.

Our Roots

It all began inside our Berkeley labs in 2003, where through biology and modern technology a plant-derived cure for malaria was created. Since then, over 120 million royalty-free treatments have been given, saving lives and communities. Inspired to keep positively changing the world through biotech, we turned to the ingredients people use on their bodies every day. And we asked how we could do better. Drawing on our rich history of science and sustainability, we create skincare products that are incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment.
