Research & Development


Research: from ethnobotanical usage of the resource present in our environment.

Development of products and services protecting humans and nature.

Market Innovation through the utilization of technological and traditional components


ENDEMIC BIOTECH is aware of the importance of innovation and R&D activities in order to maintain the company competitiveness and environmental sustainability.  Associated with the company "Quimicas de Vinalopo", we take part in various R&D project through technological support contract between University (Miguel Hernandez University, Elche and Polytechnic University, Valencia). These projects are focus on creation of range of ecological products based on surfactants coming from renewable resources.
 Nowadays the research of bioactive principles concentrated in plant species becomes a very active field of science.  These researches contribute not only to decrease the release of potentially toxic substances and xenobiotic in our environment, but also to decrease the risk of appearance of microbial strains which are resistant to synthetic antibiotics. Here theses researches offer a therapeutic alternative.
