For many companies, a key challenge with using plant-based products is guaranteeing and scaling a high-quality supply chain. Seasonal variations, environmental changes, political or trade uncertainties, unsustainable harvesting methods and increased competition can all threaten reliable, high-quality and consistent supply for many high-value cosmetic ingredients.
Thanks to advanced bioengineering, it is now possible to overcome many of these problems by biomanufacturing the compounds. Bondi Bio is a Solar Biomanufacturing business. We bioengineer photosynthetic cyanobacteria to produce high-value target compounds from light, CO2 and water. Our production methods can substantially reduce environmental impacts by requiring less arable land and water to quickly and reliably produce traditional plant-based natural products.
Bondi’s platform technology is designed to maximise our ability to utilize advanced bioengineering methods to create key compounds. Using a modular and structured design process, we optimise our base “chassis” strains to suit the requirements of your target compound.
With a focus on the broad and diverse compound classes of Terpenes and Carotenoids, Bondi has access to over 70,000 compounds including many expensive and difficult to source cosmetic ingredients.
