Through science and technology, ABT uncover new and powerful natural ingredients that innovate and disrupt the skincare industry, enabling the creation of more effective and sustainable beauty products.
ABT, established in 2000, discovered special proteins in the hatching fluid of salmon, previously considered a waste product, that had a proven positive effect on the skin. Thus, a cosmetic ingredient was born – Aquabeautine XL™. On the basis of this exciting development, ABT got listed on the stock exchange in 2008, followed by the commercial breakthrough with Aquabeautine XL™ in 2012.
In 2020, ABT took a new strategic direction when the company bought Moana Skincare, a New Zealand based certified skincare provider. Later that same year, ABT agreed on a joint venture with Canadian skincare provider DCP Dermoscience. Today, ABT delivers both natural ingredients and fully developed natural skincare products.
The big shift in the skincare industry is in the direction of sustainability and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance). ABT has been part of the natural skincare sector since 2000. The establishment of ABT was a result of a focus on sustainability and ESG before ESG became a concept. Sustainable skincare aims for the men and women who would like to make a concerted effort to reduce their impact on the earth.
Innovating and disrupting the skincare industry is in our DNA, enabling the creation of more effective and sustainable beauty products.
