Reinventing nature

The Nature is rich in invention, we only reveal them, reinvent them.

Greenpharma is your R&D solutions provider, and offers you a wide range of products, services and active ingredients.

Our core business is based on the knowledge of natural substances and relies on a multidisciplinary technical platform, which allows this understanding of active molecules and the discovery of ingredients for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic or agri-food industries.

Strengthen your R&D with our many services

Drug discovery

QSAR or QSPR respectively Quantitative Structure Activity or Property Relationship are powerful techniques consisting in using available structural data (translated into molecular descriptors) to derive a mathematical model. This model relates changes in the structure with an activity or a property.

QSAR techniques are successfully used in pharmacy for lead optimisation. QSPR can be applied to build models to estimate properties such as water solubility, logP, toxicity or organoleptic properties based on molecules with known properties.

Thanks to our global network of raw material suppliers, Greenpharma can help you identify the best sources for the development of your ingredients, taking into account costs, molecular content, sustainable development …

For example, you want a particular plant with a compound identified or containing a family of compounds. We ask the same plant from our partners and we analyze the content of interest molecules. Indeed, a plant that grows in several environments can produce different compounds at different levels.

A report is then provided for you to make a decision.

This original research strategy aims to accelerate the discovery of molecules and their development, with the aim of reducing design time and R&D costs. This strategy consists in applying four concepts that have previously proved their effectiveness.

Greenpharma has validated these concepts through patents.

  • Primadulcine: a treat for your skin to relieve stress

    Greenpharma launch a new active ingredient from primrose, the flower of spring and Nature revival. The extract significantly reduces the skin aging signs linked with chronicle stress induced by cortisol. What it does on the molecular level, is reflected in the cells and finally is visible on the skin:

    • direct inhibition of the cortisone-to-cortisol converting enzyme, the 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1
    • decrease of the cortisol level in keratinocytes and increase of hyaluronic acid in fibroblasts
    • increase of collagen III and elastin in skin explants

    Please feel free to contact us to get more information and to inquire a sample !

  • Hinoline C, our formula protector won the 2022 innovation trophy by Cosmebio

    Hinoline C, our preservative-like active ingredient wins the 2022 innovation trophy by Cosmebio.

    It was honored by a jury including 22 formulators among 17 other ingredients.

    It can be used alone or as a preservative booster. Furthermore, we have demonstrated significant anti-acne properties in a clinical study vs placebo.

    Hinoline C can be used as an anti-aging agent as it stimulates the expression of collagen 3 and the synthesis of hyaluronic acid.

    Biomimetic approach to the role of digeneaside in algae and its transposition to cosmetics

    Autophagy and mitophagy are two natural biological mechanisms that are clearly involved in aging.
    Autophagy is a mechanism that protects organs from chronic degeneration and extends lifespan in contributing to proteostasis and mitochondrial homeostasis [1]. Autophagic flow decreases with age in many organs [2] while its upward regulation is implicated in the extension of life through mitochondrial adaptation to stress [3]. Moreover, mitochondrial function plays a major role in numerous cellular pathways from ATP production to nuclear gene expression and epigenetic alterations. This mitochondrial function declines with age.
    Recent articles [4,5] highlight the importance of mitophagy and autophagy in the cutaneaous cellular aging by endogenous (age-related) and exogenous (environmental stress) processes.
    Digeneaside is a chemical compound naturally present in red algae such as Polysiphonia lanosa L. also known as « Pompon des ascophylles ». This compound acts as an osmo-regulator enabling the algae to manage the stress caused by salinity variation induced by its environment.
    Like the algae in its environment and by biomimicry, we demonstrate a beneficial effect of digeneaside, or an algae extract containing it, on skin cells.
    Indeed, the application of digeneaside on Normal Human Keratinocytes (NHK) and Fibroblasts (NHF) in various biological models showed that:

    • digeneaside protects lysosomal and mitochondrial network in NHK and NHF
    • digeneaside stimulates mitophagy and autophagy activities in skin cells, thus preserving cells and tissues longevity
    • digeneaside restores the UV-induced decrease in ATP production
    • digeneaside has beneficial effect on certain components of the extra cellular matrix such as hyaluronic acid

    Like its natural role in algae (detoxifying saline osmolyte), digeneaside helps detoxify skin cells against external aggressions and allows to improve skin condition.
    This is a good example of “pharmaco-mimicry”.
