Amyris And Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Rose Inc. Brand Launches Its First Collection Of Beauty Products

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Amyris, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMRS), a leading synthetic biotechnology company active in the Clean Health, Beauty and Wellness markets through its consumer brands and a top supplier of sustainable and natural ingredients, today announced the launch of Rose Inc., a clean color cosmetics brand. Today's launch is the second of three highly anticipated brand launches Amyris is introducing to the market this summer.

Amyris and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Rose Inc. brand is launching its first collection, the Modern Essentials collection. The brand will build on the success of Ms. Huntington-Whiteley's digital community, Rose Inc. which brings together beauty professionals and conscious beauty enthusiasts.

Rose Inc.'s products are multi-faceted: effortless and effective, clean and clinically proven, sensual and sustainable. Its non-comedogenic formulas are developed with proprietary bioengineered and sustainably sourced ingredients, including Squalane, Amyris' pure, sustainable and plant-derived moisturizer that adds weightless hydration, and Hemisqualane, Amyris' sustainable and naturally derived alternative to fluid silicones and cyclomethicone. Committed to vegan and cruelty-free products, the Modern Essentials collection includes the Softlight Luminous Hydrating Concealer, Lip Sculpt Enriched Amplifying Color, Brow Renew Enriched Shaping Gel, Blush Divine Radiant Lip & Cheek Color, Radiant Reveal Brightening Serum and Skin Resolution Clarifying Toner.

"After working closely with high-profile makeup artists for over a decade, we launched Rose Inc. as a way to indulge my quest for the best ingredients, formulas and packaging available — and I found them in working with Amyris," said Huntington-Whiteley, Founder and Chief Creative Officer. "I couldn't find other brands that unite them all in one collection. From efficacy to ethics, Rose Inc. represents everything that's important to me in color cosmetics and skincare."

Amyris has been at the forefront of leveraging its Lab-to-MarketTM biotechnology platform and ingredients portfolio into building trustworthy clean beauty consumer brands. "Applying Amyris' technology and unique ingredients to color was a next logical step," said Caroline Hadfield, Rose Inc.'s CEO. "It was evident early on that Rosie, Amyris and I share a vision to set the new standard for ethical, best performing and sustainable color cosmetics and skincare, and we've been able to bring that to life in the Amyris laboratories. We have high expectations for the Rose Inc brand and we're off to one of the best starts of any Amyris clean beauty brand."

Registration for exclusive purchasing in the United States is now open on, where the collection will be available to registered members from August 24 to August 26.

Beginning August 27, Rose Inc will be available globally, in the United States: Sephora,, (8/27), Canada: Sephora, (8/27), United Kingdom: Space NK, (8/27), and Australia: Mecca, (9/28)
