Innovation4D connects the venture capital community with the SME’s working in the Xerox Research Centre of Canada’s Innovation Hub. This premier event features guest speakers, a tour of a state-of-the-art pilot plant, pitch sessions, and networking opportunities.
Since 2013, the Xerox Research Centre of Canada has been nurturing an innovation hub in Mississauga, Ontario. With the help of its hub partners – RIC Centre and GreenCentre Canada – together they have developed an ecosystem focused on advanced materials, advanced manufacturing, and Cleantech.
The City of Mississauga is a proud sponsor of the Innovation 4D, and would like to showcase the six innovative companies that are participating in the program.
Anomera is a company that displays great innovation and business growth across the greater Toronto region. Anomera is currently located inside the Xerox Research Centre and is the featured company this week.
Anomera is an Advanced Materials Sciences company that uses sustainable manufacturing to convert Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) pulp into sulfate-free cellulose ingredients for everyday living. Its current focus is on Natural Cosmetics by replacing harmful plastic microbreads.
The foundation of Anomora’s ingredients is DextraCel™ – the company’s innovative specialty carboxylated nanocrystalline cellulose. Anomera uses “Cradle-to-Cradle” design in its patent-pending processes. The company is unique in how it has developed cosmetic ingredients to impart a natural appearance to the skin, adapt to different skin types, and craft sensory attributes – all from cellulose. Customization of its ingredients brings new features to cosmetic products, differentiating them from competitors.
From natural sources, Anomera has created its ChromaPur™ product line for cosmetics: ChromaPur Neige, ChromaPur SPF, ChromaPur USF and OT – snow white powders that can be formulated for skin protection and coverage, enhanced optical effects, and adaption to skin types. ChromaPur is a new class of cellulose microbeads that is designed to meet the demand for high performance natural alternatives to banned microplastics. Anomera’s cellulose microbeads offer new benefits to clients of Cosmetics and Skin Care.
Anomera also offers a special line of multi-functional coloured cellulose microbeads called ChromAllur™. These metal-free organic pigments – designed specifically for cosmetics – retain the smooth feel of the ChromaPur white powders, while offering vibrant color that cannot be obtained with traditional, metal-based pigments.
