Why We Exist

 

THERE IS A HUNGER FOR MATERIALS INNOVATION THAT CONSCIOUSLY PUTS PEOPLE AND PLANET FIRST.

There has been a revolution in bio-based materials innovation in the last 20 years and a realization that it is time to move beyond the incumbents of petroleum and commodity agricultural ingredients. However, only a few of these materials have crossed the gap from science to product application.  As a consequence, the “palette” of materials product designers have at their disposal remains limited today.

We plan to redefine and expand the "palette" for material science.  By using the best of new materials that were part of the first wave of bio-based ingredients innovation and focusing on creating targeted new materials, we intend to take applications development directly to people. 

We believe in open-minded innovation. From concept to consumer, we listen to impassioned pioneers every step of the way so we can make better products that solve real world problems. By engaging directly with product users, partnering with socially responsible corporations, and commercializing end-use consumer products, we will design superior products with better materials to meet real needs and solve pressing issues.

We are driven by curiosity and ambition. We design with intention.

We have a vision around a more efficient and less costly way to deliver better performing and sustainably produced products.
