L’Oréal, the global beauty giant, has recently made a notable investment in Timeline, a Swiss biotech company specializing in longevity. This strategic move from L’Oréal showcases its interest in exploring the potential of longevity within the beauty industry. Through its venture capital fund, Bold, L’Oréal has acquired a minority stake in Timeline, signaling a commitment to diving deeper into this field.

Timeline was established in 2007 as a spin-off from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), by founders Chris Rinsch and Patrick Aebischer. The company’s primary focus lies in developing innovative solutions in longevity for the food, beauty, and health sectors.

A key innovation from Timeline is the molecule named “Mitopure.” This molecule is designed specifically to regenerate and rejuvenate mitochondria, which are responsible for generating energy within cells. With age, mitochondria tend to malfunction, and by incorporating Mitopure into dietary supplements and skincare products, Timeline aims to address the aging process at a cellular level.

While the exact details of L’Oréal’s investment in Timeline remain undisclosed, the funding provided will facilitate further progress in Timeline’s technology, expansion of operations, and a possible collaboration with L’Oréal on future projects. This partnership aligns perfectly with L’Oréal’s vision of incorporating longevity into their beauty products and ensuring skin health and beauty through the prevention, correction, and reversal of the aging process.

The pursuit of longevity has become a prominent trend in the beauty and wellness industry, with other major players like Estée Lauder recognizing its potential and subsequently launching initiatives focused on longevity. Estée Lauder’s Skin Longevity platform, for example, emphasizes product innovation, a collective of longevity experts, and financial support for research conducted at the Stanford Center on Longevity.

L’Oréal’s investment in Timeline comes at a time of significant growth for the company. In the first nine months of 2023, L’Oréal reported a remarkable revenue increase of 9.4%, totaling €30.57 billion. This strategic move indisputably solidifies L’Oréal’s position as a leader in the beauty industry, while also showcasing its dedication to exploring cutting-edge technologies and innovations.

With the backing of L’Oréal, Timeline is positioned to make significant strides in the field of longevity. By harnessing the power of Mitopure and incorporating it into beauty and health products, Timeline has the potential to revolutionize the way we approach aging and well-being. As the pursuit of longevity continues to gain momentum, it will be captivating to witness the impact of this partnership on the beauty industry and the development of novel, innovative products promoting skin health and beauty.
