LipoTrue presents its fifth technology platform for the development and production of innovative new cosmetic actives: Greenbeat™.
In addition to the well known existing LipoTrue technology platforms
–Wild plants as biofactories
–In silico and biomimetic design of new peptides
–Big data analysis
The new technology (or rather Greenology) platform Greenbeat™ is based on meristem cell technology. Meristem cells are constantly self-replicating, totipotent cells that are able to differentiate into every cell type of the original plant, thus also able to produce every metabolite, every plant active the „mother plant“ can produce. The core of the technology is a single plant explant that is cultivated in a suitable culture medium to induce a callus formation. Under suitable culture conditions, this callus will be a never-ending supply of plant cells, that can be divided into a part that is used to maintain the culture and a part that is processed into extracts rich in biological actives. As the whole culture is based on a single plant sample, the method is suitable to yield industrial amounts of plant actives even from very rare plants. Other advantages are neglectable area consumption (no competition to food production), optimized water and energy consumption, very little waste production, no pesticides, total traceability, thus a highly sustainable production of specific, high-quality plant actives. The resulting actives are eco friendly, natural, non-GMO, Halal, in compliance with Nagoya and IECIC China list. And the main advantage of this new Greenology is, that responsible sourcing of the whole plant biodiversity of our planet for new exciting actives with novel properties and activities is now possible.
