it is easy to make an announcement, it is harder to make it a reality
It was only a couple of months ago that we announced our pivot; from an up-and-coming brand to an innovation lab. We named this new endeavor the Beebe Lab – which is short for BEta-testing Endeavors for BEauty. This name captures our main mission to find new applications for our clean and effective ingredients and send them directly to YOU (the consumer) for feedback. This feedback is in turn used to hone in on the optimal formulation and ignite the path to commercialization through brand partners.
Our Beebe Lab is a reality and our first trial is out of the gate
Admittedly it is easy to make an announcement, it is harder to make it a reality. But in a short amount of time, the Eighteen B team has done just that. Our Beebe Lab is a reality and our first trial is out of the gate. Our adorable Foaming Gel Cleanser kits (pictured above) have been shipped to our lovely Beebe Testers and the product evaluation has begun!
Each of the kits contained three slightly different cleansers and our testers will help us hone in on the optimal formulation. The star ingredient is the B-SILK PROTEIN. One of vegan silk’s inherent properties is that it is highly adsorbent. By adding our B-SILK PROTEIN in a cleansing formulation, the silk does the heavy lifting (literally!) – lifting dirt and impurities from the skin as it is massaged into the skin. Because of this, we are able to lower the concentration of surfactants in the formula, making it more gentle on the skin barrier without compromising the effectiveness of the product. Science for the win!
We are excited for this whole new application of our B-SILK PROTEIN.
The B-SILK PROTEIN you know and love that is in our moisturizers and serum, acts like an extension of your skin barrier. It defends against environmental aggressors while locking in hydration. Who would have thought that B-SILK PROTEIN could do more than one thing?…well, we did. This is why we love B-SILK PROTEIN, it is incredibly versatile while also being sustainably produced and vegan.
