Seqens Cosmetics strengthens the traceability of its organic active ingredients by authenticating plant species using DNA tests

H&PC Today

Since May 2019, all organic actives produced by Seqens Cosmetics will be traced on the blockchain (, which makes it possible to guarantee COSMOS compliance in real time, from the plant raw material to the finished product.

In addition to this full transparency approach, Seqens Cosmetics has decided to use DNA Gensee to guarantee the authenticity of the plant species used in their organic active ingredients by using DNA tests.

“We will start by ensuring the authenticity of the organic buckwheat contained in Cell’intactTM; our ambition is to gradually extend DNA testing to all plant species used in the manufacture of our organic active ingredients, in order to assure our customers of the authenticity of our raw materials”, says Marie-Alex Premier, Vice-President of the Cosmetics Division.

“The genetic analyses carried out by DNA Gensee will enable Seqens to guarantee to its customers the authenticity of their botanical raw materials. This is an extra step towards the transparency demanded by the cosmetic market”. Nicole Giraud President, DNA Gensee.
