Got an idea but don’t know what your next step should be? Give us a call!

Our VenomSELECT™ service is a comprehensive offering – from concept to active ingredient, and development of your chosen active ingredient – with a unique marketing angle that has been proven to sell. You can start with a requirement – or even simply an idea – and we’ll take care of the rest:

  • Provide the product concept.
  • Build the right marketing story to fit the product.
  • Identify animal peptides with potential cosmetic actions and molecular targets for the desired effects via our Venomtech Biomimicry platform.
  • Design and test novel synthetic peptides inspired by a range of animal and plant species.
  • Register the product for you.
  • Support your product launch and demonstrate the cutting-edge science involved.

Our experts can help you deliver new, first-in-class active ingredients, taking advantage of biomimicry and including a wide range of antibacterial and antifungal active peptides from venoms that are not only functional and effective, but also fully biodegradable – so they’re eco-conscious too!

We have a strong background in neuroscience, which provides the specialised expertise needed to modulate GPCRs and ion channels for a wide range of cosmetic claims, including antiwrinkle, rejuvenation and sensitive skin. This is complemented by our in-depth understanding of venom biochemistry and pharmacology, allowing us to identify novel active peptides with applications for acne, hair loss and modifying skin tone.

To help you decide on your next VenomSELECT™ product, we have created a cosmetics claims catalogue containing an assortment of ideas that can be used as a starting point in your next product. In addition to this bespoke service, we also offer many predesigned cosmetic peptides, ready to be formulated as your new active ingredient.

With help every step of the way, you’re in good hands.
