BIOMATERIALS

REIMAGINING INSECT BIOTECHNOLOGY

Insectta's extracts high-quality chitosan and melanin, with our proprietary insect biomaterial extraction technology. We unlock high-value materials never before extracted from insects for applications in healthcare, cosmetics, organic electronics, and more

CHITOSAN

SUSTAINABL· PURE · TRACEABLE

Chitosan is a biomaterial with anti-microbial, moisturising, and anti-inflammatory properties. Widely used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, anti-microbials, and agritech, we bring a circular and clean chitosan to the market

 

Insectta's black soldier fly chitosan is superior to traditional crustacean chitosan for its sustainability, traceability, and undetectable toxic heavy metals.

MELANIN

BIOCOMPATIBLE · WATER-SOLUBLE · CONDUCTIVE

Melanin is a dark pigment that colours our skin, hair, and eyes. Melanin conducts electricity, heals nerves and bones, serves as a cancer therapy, and so much more.

Insectta is the first company to extract a pure,100% water-soluble melanin in unprecedented quantities. We set the stage to supply this advanced material to the biomedical and organic electronics industries on a scale never seen before.

FEED ADDITIVES

GUT HEALTH · YIELD · IMMUNITY

COMING SOON

Our proprietary biomaterial extraction process allows us to recapture mineral and protein byproducts that would otherwise be washed away as waste. 

We support the circular economy by allowing these products to serve the animal feed industry as high-value supplements to improve yield, boost immunity, and support gut health.
