Deep Dive On Why Biomimetic Works Better For Your Skin

If you didn't know exactly what Biomimetic skincare is and why it is more effective, we're taking you on a deep dive by the hands of our science experts to shed some light on the matter.

By Susie Willis


Skin is one of the most sophisticated bio-materials, thousands of genes play a role in skin development, maintenance, and function which is why we research and develop at the molecular level. We believe nature is the ultimate engineer. Harnessing the power of nature and understanding the biology of the skin allows us to formulate products with solutions that achieve a new level of efficacy and sustainability. As a biotech-powered skincare brand, we engineer innovative, biology-first skincare with formulas that are skin optimised and proven to transform and renew from the inside out. 

Biomimetics is the practice of learning from and mimicking nature, embracing not only the functionality and natural structure of skin's building blocks, but also drawing inspiration from diverse organisms such as plants. Our skin-system is recognized as natural by the skin, seamlessly integrating and restoring strength with the purpose to achieve cellular longevity and overall healthy skin.

With a focus on harnessing the wisdom of nature, Romilly Wilde's commitment to innovation in skincare goes hand in hand with our dedication to biomimetic principles. By tapping into the potent capabilities of natural ingredients, strive to formulate products that not only address skincare concerns but also honour the intricate balance of the skin's biology. This approach highlights the significance of utilising fundamental elements like amino acids which are essential for nurturing skin's resilience and vitality. 

Amino acids are fundamental building blocks of proteins which play a crucial role in skin structure and function. These compounds are essential for maintaining hydration, elasticity, and overall skin health. These small molecules can penetrate deep into the skin, delivering targeted benefits. They are invaluable for their potent skin rejuvenating properties and ability to replenish and support the skin's natural barrier function, promoting a youthful and radiant complexion. 

We incorporate a synergy of amino acids within our skin-system to effectively address a wide range of concerns. Two key ingredients found in our biomimetic skincare formulations are Ectoin and L-arginine.


Ectoin, present in our Advanced Supercell Serum is a natural amino acid derivative from extremophilic microorganisms that thrive in harsh environments. Ectoin acts as a powerful protective agent, shielding the skin from environmental stressors such as UV, pollution, and oxidative damage. By forming a molecular shield around skin cells, Ectoin helps to prevent moisture loss and inflammation by supporting the skin barrier function, preserving the skin's youthfulness, resilience and strength.


Similarly, L-arginine present in our Multi-Vitamin Hydra Boost is an amino acid naturally present in the body. It delivers antioxidant properties and plays a role in repairing visible skin damage. Additionally, arginine’s hydration benefits have been highly researched and been shown to help to keep skin hydrated, plump and supple. 

Both Ectoin and L-arginine are highly compatible with the skin due to their natural origin and biomimetic properties. By mimicking the skin's own biology, these ingredients can effectively interact with skin cells, delivering targeted benefits without causing irritation or sensitivity. As a result our formulas with Ectoin and L-arginin offer gentle yet potent solutions for a range of concerns. 

Incorporating these advanced ingredients into biomimetic skincare formulations allows for synergistic interactions that optimise the skin's natural processes, promoting long-term health and vitality.
