"We store cosmetics and detergents longer than food, and they are directly in contact with our skin. How we store them really matters, even if they might be eco-friendly," said Bae Won-gyu, the CEO of BAE Lab who has been working on developing eco-friendly containers.
BAE Lab received the support from Soongsil University Startup Support Group to exhibit at GITEX 2019 from Oct. 6 to 10 to introduce its shampoo and body wash brand Dr. BAE Organo-Therapy.
This eco-friendly container is made of material that is free of environmental hormones by removing harmful substances by semiconductor technology. It is harmless to the human body and is light and durable.
BAE Lab also introduced Organo-Therapy, an eco-friendly shampoo and body wash brand made by the related technologies to solve the problems of premature aging, polycystic ovary syndrome and PMS caused by harmful ingredients contained in the shampoo.
Bae said, "We have witnessed that the Dubai market is highly interested in eco-friendly products. We can see a lot of eco-friendly products that are good for our bodies, but not the containers. We are planning to expand our product lineup with eco-friendly cosmetics, dishwashing liquid, and fabric softeners made with our technology with 0% chemicals."
He also added, "Since my undergraduate studies in Stanford and ph.D studies in SNU medical engineering, I have built plenty of experience by participating in various medical research projects in dermatology. I have always felt the need to promote my technology beyond just R&D activities and seminars, so I began to develop the products on my own."
