Superior products by nature

Insempra is a biology-powered company enabling businesses to make superior products with nature. We combine bioscience and technology to grow matter for new and better products.

We are committed to driving the regenerative revolution to manufacture at scale in collaboration with nature.

About us

We grow lipids, fibers and functional ingredients

With our precision fermentation technology we use different chassis to grow customized matter that fits specific needs. Various microorganisms such as yeast and bacteria serve as our biological factories. We tap into the ancient technology that brought us beer and cheese to make superior products for everyday use.


We grow oils locally, for cosmetic and food applications, replacing agriculturally and petrochemically sourced lipids, eliminating their negative impacts like deforestation.

Insempra Fibers


Everyday materials such as polymers and textiles are based on petrochemicals. Our technology offers a biobased alternative.

Functional Ingredients

Scent, flavor, color, and other properties are what make our favorite food and personal care products particularly special. Increasingly, these ingredients come from exploitative processes. Our biological solution brings nature back to our senses.

Our approach

We are market-driven and technology-agnostic. We always start by looking at the product and the needs behind it, posing questions like: What are the challenges and opportunities? How can we make the product better for people and the planet at the same time?
