Aqdot is a Cambridge-based supramolecular chemistry company with a focus and expertise in developing, licensing and selling novel proprietary products.
In April 2019 Aqdot completed a Series B funding round of £6 million, supported by existing investors Parkwalk Advisors and IP Group. The investment accelerates commercialisation of Aq™Bit, the company’s proprietary platform chemistry, unique in its ability to capture, hold, and release materials as needed.
Initially focusing in the high value sectors of air quality, personal care and life sciences, the Aqdot Solutions part of the business works in partnership with companies to develop, license and supply novel products.
In parallel the Aqdot Products part of the company has recently launched its own brands AqStar™ M1 and Oderase®.
Sold through a distributor network, AqStar M1 is a naturally-derived emulsifier that provides formulation flexibility and distinctive aesthetics, enabling high-performing cosmetics to be formulated using naturally-derived ingredients.
Recently launched through Ocado, Oderase is the first and only fragrance-free odour erasing bathroom spray in the UK market.
