Bio-active substances for skincare, haircare and make-up care
ODYCEA is a French supplier of active ingredients led by nature explorers. We draw our inspiration from the heart of plant intelligence by unlocking the secrets of living organisms and of this mysterious nature at the roots of life. The natural substances identified have new and innovative properties or original mechanisms of action. Their effectiveness is scientifically proven. This innovation is intended for the Research and Development departments of french and international cosmetic laboratories.
The shape memory technology with gentle peeling effect
Jade Alga™ is derived from the green and organic seaweed: Ulva lactuca. It brings a unique innovation in the cosmetic industry thanks to its "Shape Memory Technology" with enzymatic and chemical (BHA) peeling.
The master of the blue light kingdom
Marine Bamboo™ is derived from the brown and organic seaweed: Himanthalia elongata. It provides pro aging and global light protection (UV, Blue light, IRA). It firms and tones skin thanks to its targeted action on Elastin, MMP1 and the contractile forces of fibroblasts.
The regenerative power of the ocean
Borealg TG is derived from a brown and organic seaweed: Laminaria hyperborea. It re-actives the process of regeneration and reduces redness thanks to a synergistic action on mitochondrial activity, Leptin receptor, Fatty-Acid-Binding Protein 3 (FABP3) as well as Cyclin D1 (CCN D1).
Through close partnerships with public research organizations and leading specialists, Odycea aims to identify biologically active fractions or substances in plants and to harness their power using green chemistry extraction processes.
Odycea explores skin intelligence to identify new mechanisms of action and new skin targets. We partners with leading french and international laboratories in the field of dermatology research whose expertise is unrivaled in the industry.
Odycea uses the latest innovations in hi-tech equipment, particularly in the fields of imaging, biometrics and skin bio-engineering to validate the efficacy of our actives, including clinical efficacy.
As symbol of Odycea’s scientific excellence, patents are designed to protect its iconic innovations such as Marine Bamboo, Pearl Alga, Jade Alga, Pink Nectar and Plankton Glass Flower.

As a young man with a passion for the intelligence of algae and plants, Xavier Briand was a pioneer in the development of high-tech active ingredients for cosmetics. After a double PhD in fine chemistry and plant physiology, and at only 24 years old, he participated in the creation of the Center for the Study and Development of Algae (CEVA) in Pleubian (Côtes d’Armor). He was in charge of all the research programs for 5 years. At the age of 29, convinced by the future of marine active ingredients for cosmetics, he joined the Roullier Group and created the subsidiary Biotechmarines. He was CEO for 25 years before its acquisition by the Air Liquide Group in 2013.
It is with deep respect and great admiration for his work that I was determined to follow in his footsteps and perpetuate his unique expertise.
After obtaining a double master’s degree at Grenoble Business School (Master in Management and Master specialized in the Management of luxury brands, fashion and design), collaborating with International Groups such as LVMH, L’Oréal and Clarins, I decided to launch my own activity specialized in innovative bioactive substances for cosmetics. This is how Odycea was born.
