Project Details

Speciality Crops

The project aims to help Cornish businesses research the added value for extracts of seaweeds, seawater and coastal plants towards skin care product development. We will work with local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to analyse the functional compositions of their current products and propose new formulations using the established skin simulation systems and testing platforms established at Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry. The project will also work to identify new plants which have properties that Cornish SMEs can integrate into their products. We expect the project will accelerate business growth and develop new market and commercial opportunities.
