It’s already in your car. How about a little on your face?

Not content to try and revolutionize the fuel market, Silicon Valley biotech company Solazyme is targeting skincare products. By re-engineering algae, Solazyme has been able to create a cleaner fuel. It’s a cool idea, embraced by some car and airline makers.

Now, Solazyme wants to get a little more glamorous.

It’s expanding a deal to sell cosmetics with skincare and makeup hotshot Sephora, and yes, the products will be algae-based. Solazyme has been working on cosmetic products for a couple of years.
