About us

Greenpharma S.A.S. is a supplier of R&D solutions in terms of products and services. Our core expertise is based on the knowledge of natural substances and on a multidisciplinary technical platform to leverage this knowledge in active molecule or ingredient discovery for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and agro-food industries.

Nature is a large reservoir of inspirations. This is reflected in the biodiversity, a source of chemical diversity. Our libraries derived from natural wealth want to capture these sources of innovations. This ambition is supported by a worldwide network for sourcing raw materials and for biological assays. We give access to our cutting-edge platform through our services in extraction, purification, chemical analysis, organic chemistry and chemoinformatics.

Based on our long experience in natural products, many companies trust our added-value for their R&D. Our partners range from biotechs, big pharmas, active ingredient suppliers, major cosmetic and chemical companies, the food industry to international level academic groups…

Please see Products & Services pages for more details or contact us to discuss of your specific research projects.

For our French partners, we are certified “Crédit Impôt Recherche” from the French Ministry of Research – interesting for tax aspects.

The team:

Philippe BERNARD, PhD

CEO, Founder of Greenpharma S.A.S.
Philippe obtained his phD in Biochemistry in 1998 at the University of Orleans (France). He has more than 15 years of experience in natural product studies. Prior to create Greenpharma, he worked for Aventis as a postdoc under the auspice of Professor Marcel HIBERT from the Faculty of Pharmacy of Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg (France), where he could complete its knowledge in pharmacology. His unique experiences in the field of biochemistry, computational chemistry and plant pharmacology leaded to the creation of Greenpharma in December 2000. The reverse pharmacognosy strategy, one component of Greenpharma, results from his expertise in different complementary fields.
