Natural cosmetics R&D


Our strategy is focused on innovation with a strong policy of investment in R&D to meet the needs for new natural cosmetics. Through our know-how, we develop new R&D projects to meet your requirements as closely as possible. On average, we devote 40% of our time to R&D projects. Elysia Bioscience has its own fully equiped laboratory.

R&D in energy metabolism

Our team develops in vitro models to meet your needs.

We are equipped with a multi-parametric analysis platform, allowing us to analyse, among other things, the effect of active ingredients on energy metabolism. Indeed, the plate reader (fluorescence, absorbance, luminescence) is coupled to a 96-well microscope. We can carry out a panel of tests including the evaluation of cellular vitality by ATP assays coupled to cellular cytotoxicity by LDH quantification. In order to provide a visual demonstration of these results, cells can be labelled for visualisation by high-resolution microscopy. The mitochondrial network is a reflection of cellular well-being. Thanks to our technological tools, the mitochondrial network can be visualised for a qualitative evaluation of the effects of an active ingredient on cellular energy production.

R&D in functional proteomics

At Elysia Bioscience, we develop “omics” type analyses, such as fonctional proteomic analyses. Proteomic analyses are capable of screening an entire set of proteins (otherwise known as the proteome) of cells or tissues. It is a powerful tool for discovery and product developement, as it can measure several thousand proteins at once. It provides rich information about claims, mode of action, efficacy and safety of an active ingredient or a mixture of actives.

Proteomics analysis is performed in a functional way. Indeed, the classification of proteins is made according to their function and role in biological processes, such as growth, energy production, the redox system and so on…

We also help you to understand these results, which can appear complex at first sight. The results are discussed with you, and organised and presented according to your particular needs; this can be in the form of graphs and explanatory tables. The most important elements are highlighted.
