Cosmeceuticals

Unlock the true bioactive potential of your product

Our experts help you validate and discover health benefits fast, using a proven, and ethical in vivo model

We help our partners in the cosmeceutical industry differentiate the bioactive potential of their new ingredients, botanicals, skin prebiotics and applications. We validate your products rapidly with world-leading CRO expertise, unique technology and an ethical, 3R compliant alternative to testing in sentient mammals.

C. elegans is a proven whole model organism for assessing the impact of ingredients on aging, longevity, epidermal integrity and health effects1-4. As invertebrates, C. elegans offer a sustainable option for testing (taking care of rodents consumes much more energy, water and resources).

Furthermore, our model offers key advantages over the use of individual cell lines — like dermal fibroblasts, or even RHE (reconstructed human epidermis) that cannot predict the safety, bioactivity and effects on other biological pathways. C. elegans is an established model for ageing studies, that cannot be replicated in vitro.

Our experts help you validate and discover health benefits fast, using a proven, and ethical in vivo model

Our unique automated WormGazerTM technology provides rich in vivo data for relevant and consistent results to characterise your product and its benefits, so you can patent early.

Our interdisciplinary team bring 80+ years joint C. elegans experience, and we work together to bring you the most relevant assays for cosmeceutical applications, including a range of transgenic models.

Ethical in vivo model to discover health benefits and patent early

✓ Sustainable, ethical alternative to testing in sentient mammals

✓ Unique technology and expertise to discover in vivo bioactive potential for IP

✓ Whole model organism data to predict safety and full biological effects

✓ Transgenic models and specialised assays for cosmeceutical applications

“We were looking to use the nematode C. elegans to test our newest longevity supplement formulation and reached out to Magnitude Biosciences above their competitors because their credibility and scientific rigor really stood out. We were extremely impressed with their work for us and how well they understood our objectives.”

Dr. Dan Gubler, Chief Scientific Officer, Brilliant. Health and Wellness company for patented and clinically-proven nutritional supplements.
