La nostra storia
La nostra storia

People, passion and research are the cornerstones of our history

This is a unique and unrepeatable Italian entrepreneurship story.
It is the story of a friendship, an intuition and a group of pharmacists who decided to devote their lives to turning their noble profession into a community.

And the result is 40 years of cosmetic, dermatological, nutraceutical and make-up products which are effective, safe and affordable.
