High Beauty, Lygos partner on cosmetics with rare cannabinoids
Specialty ingredients company Lygos is working with cannabis sativa-powered beauty brand High Beauty in a new co-development and commercial partnership. High Beauty and Lygos CBx will develop co-branded cosmetics formulated with naturally derived rare cannabinoids, including cannabigerol, or CBG.
The first products to launch from this collaboration are the High & Bye Refining Oil and High & Bye Clearing Gel, which include Lygos-CBG, meant to help target blemish-prone skin.
“High is expertly formulated with cannabis sativa seed oil in combination with bioflavonoids and terpenes to provide all the nutrients needed for healthy, beautiful skin,” said Melissa Jochim, founder and formulator of High Beauty. “We are now able to enhance our new High & Bye collection with Lygos’ pure Lygos-CBG.”
Lygos CBx uses a novel production pathway to extract unique and valuable compounds that are otherwise difficult to isolate from the plant, according to Lygos. Its THC-free line of cannabinoids are focused on purity, performance and sustainability.
“Lygos’ proprietary technology platform delivers market-leading quality, purity and formulation-precision at a significant cost and time advantage relative to ingredients derived from the cannabis plant,” said Eric Steen, CEO of Lygos. “This partnership with the High Beauty team is a huge step forward in the beauty and cosmetic market for the Lygos CBx business. We are now providing kilograms of sustainable products that are naturally inspired and go beyond the plant.”
