Natural Chemistry

By Jenni Mann

How do you put a Nobel Prize-winning scientist and a skincare product in the same business? This isn’t a knock-knock joke. Noble Panacea knows how. With their revolutionary Organic Molecular Vessel (OMV) technology, they are creating skincare like never before; mixing science and nature for the perfect balance. This is all about the border where nature meets science, learn more about it here in Natural Chemistry.

Skincare that’s organic, free from harmful products like parabens and SLS’s (a skin irritant that is used in many skincare products), backed by science and works wonders – the ideal brand. Noble Panacea is showing us that you can have ageless, luxurious skin, and you don’t have to worry about your moral conscience or what’s going into the product. The brand is cruelty-free and delivers unparalleled results with its revolutionary technology. This is the pinnacle of power for smartly cared-for maturing skin.

 “We don’t talk about anti-aging, we talk about ageless solutions or well-aging, and we don’t have too many steps, but you do see results.” – CEO Celine Talabaza

The original founder, Sir Fraser Stoddart, can certainly be trusted with the task of caring for our skin, as he won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his decades of research and lifetime contribution to organic chemistry. Noble Panacea applies Sir Fraser’s revolutionary organic molecular technology which is rooted in his Nobel Prize Winning work. 

An unlikely candidate for the role of beauty entrepreneur, Sir Fraser discovered what he named Organic Molecular Vessels (OMV’s) and incorporated them into Noble Panacea’s products. OMV’s have a time-released delivery method engineered from natural starches and protects active ingredients like retinol and peptides at molecular level to preserve their potency until they can be released at the moment of need. Noble Panacea’s CEO Celine Talabaza put it simply for us and equates them to little houses with windows that open at the perfect point.

So why the name Panacea? A panacea is a word meaning a remedy for multiple difficulties or diseases, and comes from the name of the Greek goddess of universal remedies, Panacea.

This panacea surely has a lot of time and care poured into it, with each product being manufactured in small batches that take three weeks to be made. Of course, with this much effort, scientific knowledge, and good ingredients mixed into the products, you can expect it to be nothing short of luxurious.

In today’s ecological crisis, it’s important we are all as focused on sustainability as we can be. Noble Panacea is definitely a friend of that message, and cites sustainability as one of its central principles of beliefs. So, how do they put it into practice? Well, the OMV production involves crystallization of carbohydrate and salt in a closed-loop, which is a renewable process that doesn’t yield waste. Always paying attention to detail, Noble Panacea’s packaging is equally environmentally conscious, with its octagonal recyclable containers being composed of a starch substance. 

Each formulation is filled into a recyclable single-use Active Daily Dose system which preserves the potency of the product, protects it from contamination and helps the user to know the exact right amount to use for the best results.

Just because it’s single-use doesn’t mean it has to be bad for the environment. Noble Panacea has a deep respect for the natural world and follows the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry and is committed to sustainability throughout the making and distributing process. Each packet is aluminum-free, and Noble Panacea sends them with directions on sending the empties back to them to be recycled with TerraCycle. Refills will be available within the next year too, as they continue their commitment to preserving nature.

The brand also continues Sir Fraser’s legacy of mentoring by partnering with Girl Up, a global movement to empower girls’ development through education.
