Activen is a swiss biotech company that has pioneered a new class of actives for the dermo-cosmetic industry.
Activen scouts the genomic sequences of living organisms to find promising actives. Our research has helped us identify an untapped source of natural molecules that are particularly well suited for dermo-cosmetic applications: miniproteins™. Activen is a pioneer in this field and has developed a unique database of more than 100'000 miniproteins™ to date. With less than 1% of these miniproteins™ having known functions, a multitude of powerful and innovative applications have yet to be discovered.
Activen has two active ingredients on the cosmetic ingredient market.
