Letter from the CEO
From the Desk of Mike Hamilton, Aug 2021, Renmatix
Renmatix delivers Plant Ingredient Innovation by coupling our proprietary and award-winning water technology with plants. Mother Nature makes the plant cell wall rich with an abundance of cellulose and lignin. Using our Plantrose™ technology, we release the plant cell wall into new and unique ingredients, with immense functionality. These ingredients can be used in a variety of consumer wellness applications. And we do this only using water. Responsible use and care of Mother Nature’s bounty is in the DNA of our technology and company culture. We use water in its supercritical state, managing pressure, temperature and time, to make unique particles that form the basis of our ingredients and products. Equally, our technology is people, animal and environmentally friendly.
Today, we manufacture and sell beauty and personal care products under our AllWell beauty brand. Our first product is the AllWell Botanical Face & Body Mask™, with exciting complimentary products in the pipeline. Our unique particles contribute to the wellness of our mask customers, with multiple clinically proven results and carefully chosen formulation ingredients to meet the highest clean standard in the industry. There are many planned product introductions for the coming months to offer our customers a wider collection of beauty products from the AllWell family.
We also manufacture and sell a food ingredient— Nouravant™ --that is being used to extend freshness in a range of baked goods, and can also be used as an egg replacement product. Because our food ingredient provides antioxidants and fiber, while performing tasks traditionally left to chemicals, we are again supporting the wellness of our ultimate customers. We see opportunity across many other consumer wellness applications for our innovative and sustainable materials, in addition to making industries healthier.
More and more, the world demands we not only reuse more plant waste, but that we Upcycle it into more valuable ingredients and products. That is what Renmatix is doing. We are an Upcycle Pioneer in Beauty products, using red maple residues to build out our AllWell products. Our customers take comfort in knowing their consumer products were made with sustainability and the planet’s wellness at the heart of Renmatix.
It took us the better part of a decade to get the Plantrose Technology Platform optimized and capable of making a variety of specialty plant grades. From our past we also explored the utility for our Plantrose technology in the Fuels and Materials markets, and believe we will be able to leverage those learnings at a later date. Along the way we built a strong Intellectual Property portfolio.
Supported by our lead investor, John Doerr, we are excited about our impact on the future and delivering sustainably attractive options for consumers. We have big dreams for how to use Mother Nature’s plants to make more special ingredients and products for the world.
