Gadusol Laboratories

Gadusol Laboratories is a biotech startup company based in Corvallis, Oregon in the R&D phase using proprietary Oregon State University synthetic biology methodology to produce natural sunscreen compounds found in marine life. Fish and plant life have been protecting themselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays for eons of time, and although scientists have been aware of these UV-absorbing compounds, there has never been a way to produce the compounds for human use, until now. These compounds will be natural, innovative sunscreen ingredients that are sustainably sourced, environmentally safe, provide supplemental skin/health benefits, and offer effective protection against both UV-A and UV-B rays.

Gadusol Laboratories is an Oregon BEST company ( and a National Science Foundation SBIR grantee.
