Biotechnology

Did you know…

Biotechnology and Life Sciences are contributing to the modernisation of European industry. They are used in a variety of industrial sectors such as healthcare and pharmaceuticals, animal health, textiles, chemicals, plastic, paper, fuel, food, and food processing.

Taking advantage of biotechnology helps the EU economy grow and provides new jobs, while also supporting sustainable development, public health, and environmental protection.

Biotechnology’s contribution to the EU economy

The main applications of biotechnology in the EU economy can be classified into three broad groups:

In healthcare and pharmaceutical applications, biotechnology has led to the discovery and development of advanced medicines, therapies, diagnostics, and vaccines. For example, biotechnological breakthroughs have created new medicines for patients suffering from growth diseases, metabolic diseases, multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.

In agriculture, livestock, veterinary products, and aquaculture, biotechnology has improved animal feed, produced vaccines for livestock, and improved diagnostics for detecting diseases such as BSE, foot and mouth disease, and salmonella. It has also enabled the use of enzymes for more efficient food processing and improved the breeding of plants to obtain desired characteristics.

In industrial processes and manufacturing, biotechnology has led to the use of enzymes in the production of detergents, pulp and paper, textiles, and biomass. By using fermentation and enzyme biocatalysis instead of traditional chemical synthesis, higher process efficiency can be obtained, decreasing energy and water consumption. This leads to a reduction in toxic waste.

Nueva normalidad para los cosméticos

The 'new normal' for cosmetics

With the progressive return to normality, one fact has been verified: people wear much less makeup in general. But it seems that there is one group of products within the sector that is getting a lot of benefits. And the winner products in the 'new normal' are Eye Cosmetics:  latest sales reports confirm that sales of mascara, eye shadows, pencils and concealers have doubled. And it looks like eyes, since they are going to be the only visible part of our face, will become a lot more important for cosmetics users.

We have to notice that now entering a perfumery or a cosmetic point of sale to try fragrances, makeup ranges or new treatments is going to be a new experience in which technology is going to play a fundamental role.

The most personalized services will prevail in the new cosmetics, using both artificial intelligence technology and technology that allows our experts to get closer to our online consumer. In addition, it is likely that we will not try the makeup of cosmetic firms as we have done until now - on the surface of a hand, using a touch of the brush straight on the face, without any previous sterilization...

We are entering a new normal for everyone, also for cosmetics.
