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.
Neuro-soother and anti-dark spot shield
Spring Snow™ is derived from the white flowers of wild prunus Prunus domestica and targets the “skin-brain” axis. It acts as neuro-soother and anti-dark spot shield.
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.
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.
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.

As a young man driven by a profound passion for the intricacies of algae and plants, Xavier Briand emerged as a trailblazer in the realm of cutting-edge active ingredients for the cosmetics industry. Armed with a dual PhD in fine chemistry and plant physiology, Xavier’s journey led him to play a pivotal role in establishing the Center for the Study and Development of Algae (CEVA) in Pleubian, Côtes d’Armor. Remarkably, he assumed the helm of all research programs at a mere 24 years of age, showcasing an extraordinary commitment to the field.
By the age of 29, deeply convinced of the immense potential of marine active ingredients in the cosmetics arena, Xavier ventured into the Roullier Group, where he established the subsidiary Biotechmarines. Serving as its CEO for an impressive 25 years, he steered the company’s course until its acquisition by the Air Liquide Group in 2013.
In heartfelt tribute to her father’s remarkable legacy, Fidji Briand embarked on a mission to follow in his footsteps and perpetuate his unparalleled expertise. Armed with a dual master’s degree from Grenoble Business School, encompassing a Master’s in Management and specialized expertise in the management of luxury brands, fashion, and design, Fidji’s professional journey unfolded with collaborations alongside international giants like LVMH, L’Oréal, and Clarins.
Driven by a fervent commitment to innovation in bioactive substances for cosmetics, she embarked on her entrepreneurial path, birthing the visionary venture known as Odycea.
