Insects are a very promising raw material for food, cosmetics and both the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical markets. Thanks to research into the unique chemical and biological characteristics of insects, many start-ups and research centres are proposing new products that use molecules and active ingredients extracted from insects.
Naturins, an Italian start-up, has grasped the potential of this significant source of new molecules by exploiting the antioxidant power of extracts and their anti-aging effects for the development of creams and oils for cosmetics. Other products this innovative start-up is producing include nutraceuticals with a high protein and amino acid content and functional products rich in omega 3 and omega 6 with anti-hypertensive action.
The BioArt Gallery presents the most promising feedstock and its related bioeconomy applications in everyday life with 60 stunning pictures. It offers an innovative approach of showcasing to the public some examples of bio-based products and applications currently available in the market through several examples: cosmetics, nutraceutics, tissues, toys and sport, disposable tableware, cleaning products, gadgets, and much more.
