R&D Activ'Inside
"At Activ'Inside, innovation is a shared concern. It turns into a success when our inventions meet the expectations of our customers and final consumers. Thus, every departments of our company, from R&D, marketing, regulatory, sourcing, production, to sales unit, must be involved in a push approach (innovation resulting from internal proposals) or in a pull approach (market-driven). Our vision of innovation also takes place in strong academics and industrial partnerships as Open Innovation is in our DNA. We collaborate with around 20 universities and research institutes on three continents. As a result, we will invest 25% of our turnover in research, development, and innovation, for the next 5 years. "

Sourcing & Quality

FSSC 22000
All in one technical file

David, Stéphane, and I created Activ’Inside more than 10 years ago with the goal of developing and differentiating active ingredients with proven effectiveness.

Memophenol™ was born after five years of international research program, from epidemiological study to two clinical studies on complementary targets. Activ’Inside has built on this success and was developed with the help of a highly qualified team. Other successful products are available on the market including Safr’Inside™ and Skinax².

Over the years, we have acquired a unique knowledge of saffron and grape nutrients for over 20 health applications. To complete this, we provide a range of botanical extracts to help you in your nutraceutical formulations.
