The Science of Good Sense

At Sensegen, we have a sixth sense about the future of Flavors and Fragrances for Taste, Smell, & Beauty.


And to meet the moment, we’re pioneering 100% plant-based, planet-and-people-positive biotech to create ingredients that are healthier, more pleasurable, more sustainable and more accessible for everyone. With them, we are painting a brighter, cleaner future for your consumer products. To us, that makes Perfect Sense.

We call it The Palette for the Planet™.

The Sensual Science

What’s all the buzz about biotech?

It’s only the hottest – or shall we say the coolest – tool on the planet for designing new or renovating products. Sensible. Safe. Sustainable. Scalable. Biology is at the core of everything we do. Just like nature, we start with living organisms and enzymes. In nature, it’s how plants do chemistry - biosynthesis. At Sensegen, we use biosynthesis to unlock a plant’s full potential to create our ingredients. In this sense, we are replicating nature without compromising on taste or smell, while shrinking environmental impact. Then, we create winning Flavors and Fragrances for your consumers.

Using Biotech, Molecular Precision and know-how, we can reproduce the most complex and subtle scent notes without sacrificing acres of farmland or thousands of precious petals – many of which are in short supply due to over-indulgence, crop failures, natural disasters and an unstable climate. Discover the cleanest, most natural and sustainable aromas for fine fragrance, personal care, fabric, and home care products.

Beauty side home


Clean Beauty is not just a matter of using quality, ethically sourced raw materials and providing ingredient transparency. It’s also about health, safety, fewer allergens and microplastics, greater biodegradability, and avoiding the unnecessary. People want to know what’s in their products – and why. And that’s the beauty of our Molecular Precision Technology. We select only the best – and avoid the rest.
