Glycoscience, biotechnology for a better world

A new biomimetic platform technology for the
development of topical products using sugars



A totally new concept in the process of releasing compounds for topical application on human skin based on natural processes.

Using enzymatic, cell-free synthetic biological techniques, different types of sugars are attached to natural molecules to form more stable glycoconjugates.

On contact with the skin, the products are metabolised and the natural molecule is released again, offering a method that is stable, efficient and long-lasting.

A new and broadly applicable platform technology that enhances the performance of topical products

Our first product:
A new generation of mosquito repellents

With three European patents filed and others in the drafting process, Glycoscience has obtained impressive in vitro test results for its first products, including what will be a first-in-class in the field of topical repellents.

Our product is a completely safe mosquito repellent that lasts over 24 hours, can be used by young children as well as pregnant women, and offers a more natural alternative to current products at an equivalent cost.

The first product
