CEO of Geltor sees plenty of opportunities for its new vegan collagen and is planning to use Korea as a springboard to expand further into Asia-Pacific.

The California-based biotech company was at in-cosmetics Korea in Seoul to showcase HumaColl21, what it claims is the first biodesigned human collagen for the skin care market.

It is the second product from Geltor after Collume, which was previously known as N-Collage.

Geltor co-founder and CEO, Alex Lorestani, told CosmeticsDesign-​Asia that after an “exciting”​ start in Korea, the company is looking forward to expanding further into the APAC region, such as Japan and China.

“We've made hundreds of proteins in our home in California… We are really looking forward to bringing more protein products to the skin care market. Two is just the beginning. We are having some early conversations with our partners in Korea this week at in-cosmetics Korea about the new ingredients coming out of our portfolio,” ​said Lorestani.
