Guaranteeing raw materials of consistent quality

Our homeopathic medicines make the most of the therapeutic properties of thousands of substances of various origins: plant, mineral/chemical and animal (e.g. venom). For their collection or cultivation, we call upon farmers, producers and professional pickers, giving preference to short channels. All cultivated plants we use are naturally GM-free. Therefore, to ensure the perfect traceability of each raw material, we determine specifications for collection sites and conditions, and our partners are regularly audited.

Biodiversity-friendly collections

According to the good plant stock collection practices defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO), our specifications for collections require:
- fostering the sustainability of plant resources
- optimising the traceability of plant substances
- and preserving the environment and biotopes.
They also apply to the cultivation of species that do not exist in the wild or species endangered by the collection due to the quantities used.

Manufacturing process under stris surveillance

Upon arrival on our sites, all raw materials undergo rigorous quality controls. These organoleptic, botanical and physical-chemical controls are performed by qualified professionals. This guarantees the use of stocks, water and air of the utmost quality and perfectly traceable. Throughout the manufacturing process, our chemistry, bacteriology and botany laboratories perform approximately 30,000 checks per year. To do this, we rely on our 120 pharmacists in France and on our own analysis laboratories.
