Foosh Circular Beauty

Biodegradable and upcycled cosmetics from grapes

During the wine-making, the grape pomace is produced, a by-product consisting of the skins and seeds of the pressed grape. Usually, this material is not valorised. Nevertheless, this solid material accumulates large part of the polyphenol antioxidants that confer the curative and regenerative properties of the grape. From this grape pomace, we extract its active components to revalorise their properties in our high-quality cosmetics. In addition, to close the circle of our product, we have innovated in a completely biodegradable packaging made from the wood industry wastes.


Company/Institution
Foosh Beauty
Foosh Beauty is a start-up project that has born directly from the idea of creating revalorised cosmetics from upcycled grapes. We are four young friends that were aware of the amount of wasted grapes in the wine industry and come together to reimagine possible solutions through science and entrepreneurship. Our experience in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors made us realize the need to rethink a cosmetic industry dominated by marketing and green-washing campaigns. We want to bring innovation, transparency, sustainability, and circularity to the world of cosmetics.
