CELLUGY: A nature-inspired alternative to microplastics

Unleashing the potential of biofabricated cellulose

What if we learned from nature to phase out microplastics found in cosmetics? What biological strategies protect against UV, and maintain moisture & nutrients? Can we achieve desired qualities with abundant, safe, and renewable materials?  Meet CELLUGY®, one of the 2023 finalists for the Ray of Hope Prize®.

Watch this short film that the Biomimicry Institute produced about the technology and inspiration behind CELLUGY's bacterial cellulose technology.
