Biossance has announced Jonathan Van Ness as the brand's first celebrity ambassador.
Van Ness is a television personality, podcaster, comedian and beauty expert to the stars. He will also play a large role in a new Biossance education initiative later this summer.
Biossance uses the latest in biotechnology to create safe, sustainable, and luxurious formulas -- plus, it is a leading clean beauty brand that bans over 2,000 potentially harmful and toxic ingredients. The brand's star ingredient is 100% plant-derived squalane, sourced from sugarcane – a weightless, non-comedogenic oil that replenishes and locks in essential moisture for the skin.
Van Wess says, "I love incorporating skincare that helps me feel and look my best, while also coming from ethical and sustainably sourced places. Since the start of my career in the beauty industry, I have been inspired by companies that blend nature and science to create skincare that helps improve the health of skin and people's knowledge of what the ingredients really do. I'm so excited to partner with Biossance because of their commitment to clean beauty and to continue educating consumers on their skin. I can't wait to learn and grow with Biossance."
Catherine Gore, President of Biossance, says, "Jonathan was the obvious choice for Biossance – he is personable, has an approachable style to beauty expertise, and has a true passion for sustainability. As a clean beauty brand that believes efficacy and results come first, we are thrilled to welcome Jonathan to the Biossance family. His desire to expand the world's clean beauty knowledge with us makes him a seamless fit with the brand's vision."
