BioSafe Technologies, Inc was incorporated in 2000 to further develop, clinically test and create a distribution of nontoxic pesticide formulations for eliminating parasites and other blood sucking insects such as mites and lice affecting humans and animals. The active ingredients were discovered by its founder, Lynn James-Meyer during field testing in Brazil in the early 1990s. The formulations were brought to the US and obtained worldwide patents and further tested for safety and efficiency. All function as cleansers and do not contain poisonous insecticides.
Since 2003 BioSafe based the majority of its business as an exporter supplying overseas distributors. It contracted with several filling facilities in the Dallas, Texas area for bulk packaging of its headlice shampoo in 1000 liter totes. These are exported to various locations in Europe for further private labeling and distribution by several large pharmaceutical companies. Product is sold in Europe and other countries in children’s specialized lines of products.
BioSafe has successfully worked with the US EXIM Bank Export Program to support the growth of the company since 2009. A testament to the success of that partnership was Lynn’s selection as Global Exporter of the Year in 2016 by the Dallas Branch of the Global Chamber where she serves on the Board Advisory Committee. As a woman owned company, she also received various awards for Women in Business in 2017.
