EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Amyris, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMRS), a leading synthetic biotechnology company active in the Clean Health and Beauty markets through its consumer brands and a top supplier of sustainable and natural ingredients, today announced that it has obtained commitments for over 10,000 new doors at retail stores such as Sephora North America, CVS, KeHe North America, Loblaws Super Saver, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Walmart Canada and Wegmans to sell Amyris clean beauty consumer products. Sales at these retailers are expected to start over the next two quarters.

A consumer super cycle is accelerating demand for natural, sustainably sourced, products. Amyris's clean beauty brands are well positioned to respond to this significant consumer movement with a leading portfolio of beauty and personal care products.

Amyris is in a unique position among both biotechnology peers and personal care and beauty companies of being able to combine the power of its proprietary Lab-to-Market biotechnology platform with formulating and marketing a leading portfolio of natural, sustainably sourced, consumer brands consisting of Biossance®, Pipette®, Rose Inc., JVN, Terasana, and Costa Brazil.

"The quality, performance and positioning of Amyris's consumer brands has resulted in significant demand from retailers in North America focused on offering the best performing and most sustainable products in the health and beauty markets to consumers," said John Melo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amyris. "Our biotechnology platform has a proven track record of manufacturing and commercializing sustainably produced ingredients and consumer products in greater numbers than any peer in the sector. Our consumer portfolio is designed for the consumer pull for clean, sustainable products to deliver great performance for their daily needs. Our store presence continues to expand, and we are now experiencing better than pre-COVID sales growth with our retail store partners while continuing our direct-to-consumer growth."
