Laboratoires Expanscience

Expanscience strengthens its responsible sourcing policy with its acquisition of a Peruvian company

Expanscience, a French independently-owned pharmaceutical and dermo-cosmetics laboratory, is acquiring the Peruvian firm Deshidratados Tropicales, which specializes in sourcing and processing plant raw materials. With this acquisition, Expanscience provides for a more secure and more traceable supply of avocado and maca, two plant raw materials that play a strategic role in three of its business lines: Dermo-Cosmetics (Mustela), Rheumatology (Piasclédine 300) and Cosmetic Active Ingredients (Macaline, Skinergium, Avocado Perseose). Through its direct presence in Peru, Expanscience will enhance its CSR policy by providing for the development of plant supply chains that are friendly to both the environment and the Peruvian communities where avocado and maca are cultivated.

2015 Annual report

Over the life of a company, some years have an especially decisive impact. At Laboratoires Expanscience, 2015 was undoubtedly one of those years. It’s been decisive for the success of our products worldwide, for the production records set by our manufacturing site, and above all for the milestones we have reached, the transformations we have successfully navigated and the ambitions we have set for ourselves. In 2015, for the first time, our international sales exceeded our sales in France. Moreover, in 2015 we adopted a new business model in France for Piasclédine 300, our drug for the treatment of osteoarthritis. And in 2015 we drafted a five-year plan of commitments with regard to Corporate Social Responsibility, with the aim of pledging new commitments between now and 2020.
