If there's a biological problem, there's a biological solution



Our Mission & Technology

For far too long, we have been using chemicals to solve biological issues. As a result, human health is suffering and the oceans are deteriorating.

Curie Co is a life science company that engineers enzymes and biomaterials to replace harmful and banned chemicals.

Our proprietary technology uses recycled materials that originate in the ocean, because the ocean already knows how to break them down. So when you wash our products down the drain, waterways stay clean. That’s OceanSafe™.

Our Urgency: A Timeline

Our proprietary enzyme engineering tools make ingredients that are OceanSafe™. The FDA has recently banned classes of chemicals found in everyday products (think: soap, shampoo, lotion, etc.) because they’re polluting our waters and jeopardizing our health.

Curie Co’s recycled marine biomaterials will replace these harmful chemicals in common consumer products—and more.


Congress enacted into law a ban on non-biodegradable microbeads due to their devastating effect on our oceans.


The FDA eliminated 19 chemicals found in consumer soaps by banning antibacterial soaps.


The FDA further banned 23 chemicals in clinical soaps, such as surgical scrubs.


Personal Care Products Act was assigned to committee in Congress to give the FDA jurisdiction over the personal care industry.


Curie Co’s Solution

Curie Co’s propriety OceanSafe™ technology uses enzyme engineering and recycled marine biomaterials to completely replace these FDA-banned chemicals. Our 100% sustainable and safe ingredients can be washed down the drain with no threat to our waterways. Even better—they’re affordable enough for drugstore brands and products.


Uses for Curie Co Bioplastic

Our safer, responsible antimicrobials are competitively priced with chemicals, and it takes less of our ingredients to do the same amount of work as the chemicals we’re replacing.



As found in shampoos, soaps, face washes, lotions, sunscreens, cosmetics, and 100s of other personal care products.



Exfoliants (found in toothpastes, acne washes, shaving creams, and 100s of other personal care products), bandages, packaging, and more.


First aid

Ointments, wound care, and disease prevention that are naturally antimicrobial to keep infection at bay. Bonus: Our materials are affordable enough that they won’t burden the massive healthcare industry.





Consumers are becoming increasingly ingredient-conscious and label-literate. More than ever, shoppers are checking their personal care products for lists of chemicals (or lack thereof), testing ethics, and sustainability.
