Information The company had £150,000 of its SEIS allowance remaining at the start of this raise. This will be allocated to investors on a first come first served basis. Any investments made after that limit has been exceeded will not be SEIS eligible but will potentially be eligible for EIS. The potential tax relief of any investment will be confirmed by email to investors, after they have submitted their applications to invest, and will depend on an investor's individual circumstances.

Idea

Welcome to Optiat, a nature-friendly beauty company. We take ingredients that would otherwise be discarded and transform them into natural skincare products.

Our first product provides a sustainable solution to ocean-killing microbeads by collecting used coffee grounds from London's cafes and transforming them into exfoliating body scrub.

Our products are handmade in the UK using only plant-based ingredients. We believe in respecting the world around us, never testing on animals.

The natural and organic beauty market, currently worth $11bn, is forecast to reach $22bn by 2024. Within this, skincare is expected to achieve 31% market share worth $6.8bn.

With UK listings in Whole Foods, Planet Organic, Fenwicks Bond Street, Topshop, As Nature Intended, we are distributed in 7 countries across Europe and have featured in the Daily Mail, the Sun, Grazia, Vogue, Stylist, and Elle.

In April 2017, we were awarded the Best Pitch award at InCos Global by Johnson&Johnson Innovation at their Flash Cosmetics Pitch, an event looking for early-stage startups with game-changing, transformative, cosmetic science or beauty technology innovations.

More recently, we won the inaugural Pitch + Plant Competition at Vevolution Festival 2017, a 'vegan Dragon's Den', the UK's very first plant-based investment pitching event. We won £1,500 and mentorship from BRAN Investments.
