Discover how to translate sustainability, safety and ethics into innovation and leading marketing assets with Sederma

 Inspired by traditional Korean food and the increasing demand for healthier food, fermented drinks using the beneficial effects of microorganisms have become very popular and a lot of Kombucha bars are currently opening in Europe. The use of fermented drinks is not that new, the oldest and best-known fermentation process being the conversion of sugar to alcohol by yeasts to produce beer! But today, microorganism bio-fermented products are at the heart of the demand for healthy and eco-conscious products that is leading all the industries, including the cosmetic market.


So let’s talk about microorganism culture, also called blue (marine microorganisms) or white (other microorganisms) biotechnology. The term biotechnology refers to the techniques that enable the use of living organisms to produce molecules of interest. Microorganisms are a concentration of life presented in unicellular organisms: bacteria, yeasts and microalgae; and also pluricellular organisms like fungi. It means that they are organisms invisible to the naked eye, that can survive independently, feed and multiply.


Biotechnology is a smart and ultra-clean process to produce molecules of interest for the cosmetic industry.

 Sederma is a world leader in microorganism culture for cosmetic active ingredient production, with 30 years of experience. We launched our first active ingredient issued from microorganism culture in 1988! And we now have a range of products issued from blue and white biotechnologies that can answer almost all the consumer’s needs!
