Our Story. 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 consume and use on their bodies every day. We asked how we could do better. Drawing on our rich history of science and sustainability, we developed a zero-calorie sweetener made from sugarcane, we create skincare products that are incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment and we make sustainable ingredients that supply the Health & Wellness, Clean Beauty and Flavors & Fragrances industries.
