LENI - MAKE Beauty

As we look forward, we believe we have a responsibility to reach for a more sustainable future.

MAKE products are formulated using botanical and botanically-derived ingredients and tested synthetic ingredients. In an effort to consider the environmental impact of ingredient sourcing and the safety and efficacy of our products, where possible, we utilize a biotech approach to formulation that we call Lab Engineered Natural Ingredients or “L.E.N.I”.

Lab Engineered Natural Ingredient

Biotech active ingredients are synthesized by genetically engineered microbes- like yeast, enzymes, and bacteria for example, in regulated laboratory settings. There are several advantages to the utilization of biotechnology ingredients:

+ L.E.N.I. technology goes beyond being identical to natural botanical counterparts, and can potentially exceed them in quality and performance.

+ Lab engineered ingredients have the potential to improve potency, boost bioavailability, reduce irritation, and produce additional beneficial molecules compared to traditional natural materials.

+ L.E.N.I. technology doesn't have the carbon footprint associated with plant-derived ingredients. Since these ingredients are produced in a lab, they avoid the massive drain on our limited resources. Endangered or short supply ingredients can be lab-created without impacting the world’s biodiversity.
