a family passion
The passion for nature, skin and environmental conscientiousness is part of our family’s DNA. With over 35 years of experience in life sciences, Xavier Briand brings his extensive operational experience as well as in-depth knowledge of natural bioactive substances and cosmetic industry. During his career, he held top management positions in Research Centre and International Group. Indeed, after his PhD in Plant Physiology and fine chemistry, he took part in the creation of an Algae Technical Research Centre and participated as expert of European Economic Community (EEC) in the valorization of seaweed for six years. Then, he joined an International Group to create the Biotechmarine company specialized in marine active ingredients. He is a pioneer in the creation of bio-inspired ingredients and has launched more than 60 innovations in the fields of skin and plant science.
From an early age, her daughter share the same passion for nature and skin. Growing up, she naturally multiplied experiences in the fields of cosmetics, luxury and international management. She graduated with a double master from Grenoble Business School (Master in Management and Master specialized in the Management of luxury brands, fashion and design). She had the chance to collaborate with International Groups such as LVMH (Dior), L'Oréal and Clarins. As a second generation of experts, she founded ODYCEA in 2014.
Plants have developed an impressive arsenal of bio-active substances and intelligent behaviors to cope with the challenges of singular and extreme environments. ODYCEA decrypts this complex and sophisticated botanical intelligence. The selection of these high-performance and precious substances powers our actives to reveal beautiful and healthy skin.
ODYCEA draws upon the latest technological advances in molecular biology, genomics and proteomics. We also partners with leading laboratories in the field of dermatological research whose expertise is unrivaled in the industry. We use 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 scoring as appropriate.
Our main research areas include: well aging, multi-light protection, the influence of environmental stresses, cutaneous structure, abnormalities in barrier function, sebaceous hypersecretion, inflammation, neurobiology and pigmentation.
Our goal is to actively participate in building an ethical, sustainable, and responsible vision of beauty providing: a sourcing that respects the environment and all parties involved, a sourcing essentially certified organic, a full traceability, the application of the green chemistry principles, COSMOS and China compliance, a Natural Origin Index of 1 (ISO 16128-1 and ISO 16128-2).Watch the video
