How to Biodesign #26: Natural cosmetics

Traditional cosmetics can be harmful for nature and your skin. Natural cosmetics are an alternative that uses ingredients available in nature. But it can even go further then that. Did you know there are cosmetics that include skin-specific micro-organisms to contribute to the natural microclimate of our hair and skin? How do we design a production & usage system for these bio cosmetics?

How to Biodesign series

Climate crisis asks for regenerative design. With the meetup series How to Biodesign, BlueCity Lab provides a platform for and by bioneers (pioneers in biodesign). Together with various hosts we explore the opportunities from a systemic approach to raw material flows, making smart use of the latest knowledge and expertise about circular design, but also from biotechnology and biochemistry.

The monthly meetups facilitate interaction between bioneers who are already working and those who want to get started with biodesign and biofabrication, provide a platform for sharing stories and experiences and actively share knowledge, know-how and insights from the meetups to a broader audience.

About BlueCity Lab

With our focus shifting towards a circular economy, it is time to explore the endless possibilities of regenerative design. At BlueCity Lab, we believe that true circularity starts with regenerative design: designs that lead to a vibrant, biodiverse city in which ecological, social and economic values work together in a positive way. The former swimming pool Tropicana is a circular exemplary city in which entrepreneurs use residual flows from the city to create new products and services. In November 2020, BlueCity Lab opened the first circular built biolabs in the world for working with fungi, bacteria and biochemicals. The spaces are available for bioneers working on regenerative solutions.

Word of thanks

The How to Biodesign meetups are made possible with the support of  the creative industries fund NL/Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
