In 2010, Philippe Bedos, Karl Lintner and Céline Damez created SYNTIVIA as an answer to the new challenges faced by the cosmetic industry in terms of regulatory and scientific requirements.
Right from the start, SYNTIVIA’s founders strived to offer the best life science technologies to help the cosmetic industry rise to the challenge of its quickly evolving and ever-changing market.
With its wide range of life science equipment, the Pierre Potier Center at the Oncopole Campus in Toulouse, appeared to be the obvious choice of location, as it also hosts the best academic research teams around.
Our first cosmetic research project, conducted in collaboration with the Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse, looked into the potential of wood chemistry and led to the discovery of several new and innovating active molecules. In the meantime, we have participated in many other successful research projects that led to patented innovations.
