Biossance lifts lid on ‘clean’ beauty formulas with new series of The Clean Academy

This season the brand will host conversations with ILIA, Youth To The People and Follain to lead discussions on beauty ingredients lists

Skin care brand Biossance is lifting the lid on ingredients in consumers’ everyday beauty products with a new series of The Clean Academy.

This season, the brand has hosted conversations with beauty brands that identify as ‘clean’ including ILIA, Youth To The People, Follain, Āether Beauty and Weleda to lead discussions on ingredients lists in cleansers, moisturisers and sunscreens.

Biossance debuted the platform in October 2019, hosted initially by Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness, alongside Teresa Lo, Biossance’s Senior Marketing Director, and Biossance Chemist Ramya Viswanathan.

"We are very excited to usher in the next season of engaging episodes, each one diving deeper into the often murky waters of ingredients," said Catherine Gore Biossance’s President.

"Together with our partners, The Clean Academy aims to educate and empower consumers, helping them better understand their beauty products so they never have to sacrifice sustainability for efficacy."

Consumers can watch the episodes via cleanacademy.com and Biossance’s YouTube channel.

The founders of Youth To The People, Greg Gonzalez and Joe Cloyes, said they were “thrilled” to be part of the new season.

“Together with like-minded brands, we’re challenging the industry to create change, faster.

“With a focus on education around the ‘clean’ movement, we are confident that we’re impacting change.”
