EGGXPERT's footprint of hidden treasure
Given protection in beginning of life from an embryo, eggshell membrane has been explored as a remedy for wound healing and skin caring since ancient time of China. Not only being recorded in the great work on Chinese herbal medicine – Compendium of Materia Medica (本草纲目), this ancient wisdom is widely employed in modern skin repairing treatment by modern research. It has been scientifically proved that eggshell membrane owes a balanced and comprehensive ingredients composition for skin hydration, skin elasticity, formation and repairing of connective tissues.
After noticing the insufficient eggshell membrane waste management problem in the Netherlands and Europe, Ms. Chang Liu teamed up with Dr. Rong Wang and proposed the business idea on revealing eggshell membrane’s hidden treasure with their scientific knowledges, which received extensive strong interests and support from parties of poultry farmers, incubators, business experts, grant providers and manufactures. Motivated by our vision and interests, two female entrepreneurs bravely founded EGGXPERT B.V. with solid support from Start-up Incubator in the Netherlands in warm wither of 2017.
