Normally, we would start this preamble by telling you what we believe.

Who we are.
What we do.

How we’re not just another biotech company.

We would begin every sentence with “we.” As if we were writing The Constitution. The Declaration of Independent Innovation.

But you’re too smart for that. You know convention is boring. And conformity is the antithesis of advancement. The status quo is crippling for a free thinker.

So we will not offer patronizing clichés about reinventing the future or how we’re one step ahead. We’ll skip the corporate lingo, eco-friendly lip service and BS advancements. There will be no “putting a pin in it.” No “circling back.”

There is only commitment to progress.

Our Mission

To set a new standard in beauty through our dynamic intrapreneurial model and to create purposeful brands that push humanity forward.

Our DNA is to do things differently. Break new ground. 

Turn the cosmetic active ingredient manufacturing process on its head.

We unlock a new generation of cosmetic bioactive ingredients using the most advanced biomanufacturing approaches to power global beauty and personal care.

Our proprietary active ingredients exist in nature, but only in trace amounts. Science allows us to understand how nature makes these ingredients so that we can translate it to an industrially scalable system.

Only Debut’s technology is able to create these novel, high-performing cosmetic bioactive ingredients that are unattainable by any other means, giving us exclusive access to a universe of untapped potential.

Our extensive IP portfolio consists of over 7,000 active ingredients that bring superior performance and differentiation to brands.

We partner with some of the world’s largest beauty brands to incorporate our active ingredients in their formulations, delivering heightened performance and new functionality to a broad range of products and categories. In the process, our ingredient innovation helps our partners achieve their ambitious sustainability goals.

Debut is the only biotech company with fully vertical integration capabilities incorporating ingredient discovery, cell-free, biofermentation, formulation, finished clinically-backed scalable ingredients and brand creation, all delivered at unprecedented speed.

Our proprietary Bio2Consumer™ platform also includes a database of over 3.8 million pre-clinical data points to find and discover new ingredients.

True to our name, this is just the beginning.

We are driven to bring to life that which does not currently exist in beauty.

Everything that we do is aimed at creating the highest performing, safest and most sustainable novel ingredients, products and brands that will accelerate the transformation of the beauty industry as we know it.
