Reese Witherspoon … as if we needed another reason to love her! A body of work that you could happily binge on for weeks, a total women-supporting-women attitude and a massive sense of fun aside, now the multi-award winning actor, producer and entrepreneur is collaborating with beauty brand Biossance in an effort to boost the clean beauty movement!
For those unfamiliar with Biossance, it’s essentially a brand born from a science lab in Berkeley, California, whose parent company Amyris originally set out to develop patented technology to create an accessible cure for malaria. Today, over 120 million royalty-free treatments have been successfully given thanks to this technology.
Not content to rest on its laurels, Amryis was inspired to continue using its innovative biotechnology to make a positive impact on the world. And so, turned to clean skincare, researching the ingredients we put on their faces and bodies every day.
From this research, Bioessence was created, an effective and safe skincare collection that treads lightly on our planet and respects the animals we share it with.

“I have always been conscious of what’s being put on my skin, and after all the time I’ve spent on-sets throughout my career, I’ve learned so much,” says Reese. “As my knowledge has grown so has my desire to use clean and consciously created products.
