The Group develops and produces innovative active ingredients for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and functional food; these ingredients are obtained from complex plants, algae, micro-algae and microorganism mechanisms from all over the world.

With over 100 employees, the group has an annual turnover of almost 20 million euros, 80% of which in the cosmetics markets, in particular with some of the industry’s global leaders. Half of the sales are made out of France, thanks to subsidiaries in the United States, Germany and Brazil, and to thirty distributors worldwide.
