Open Innovation Challenge
Citróleo, a Brazilian multinational of natural oils, presents its global challenge of open innovation: “Nature by itself: Innovating by valuing Brazilian biodiversity”, which aims to explore the obstacles and opportunities present in the vegetation of cosmetic formulas in a sustainable way throughout the world.
The challenge is part of the so-called “Clean Beauty” concept due to increasing concerns about the dangerousness of ingredients to human health, mainly of petrochemical origin. This leads to innovations about the inclusion of alternative, natural and sustainable products in new cosmetic formulations.
