Our company

At NANOFITOTEC we work on projects involving quality control of plant raw materials, optimization of processes for obtaining standardized extracts and the development of phytotherapics, phytocosmetics and nutraceuticals using new technologies (nanotechnology) to improve the bioavailability of the responsible active principles of pharmacological activity in living beings.

The tools that NANOFITOTEC uses to bring to the market a product of quality and guarantee are:

  • Design of experiments, DOE:
    For the optimization phase in obtaining the plant extracts.

  • Nanotechnology:
    For the optimization of the bioavailability of the active principles in people.

Our mission

Provide scientific advisory services and technical assistance for the production of innovative phytotherapics, phytocosmetics and nutraceuticals of high added value based on standardized and optimized extracts of plant species that contribute to the conservation and recovery of the population's health.

Our vision

To be the main suppliers of scientific advice and technical assistance of the Public and Private sector for the production of phytotherapics, phytocosmetics and nutraceuticals.

1. Passion for innovation.
2. Business Ethics.
3. Professional and personal growth.
4. Social and environmental responsibility.
5. Humility in our relationships.
6. Honesty.
7. Solidarity.

Our history

It was born in 2012 as a "Spin-off" company of the University of São Paulo-Brazil, aimed at innovation in phytotherapics.

It was founded and incubated during the period 2012-2015 in the Center of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Technology (CIETEC) - USP.

In 2013 it extends its field of action to the development of phytocosmetics and nutraceuticals due to the growing need of the national industries of the sector, to develop quality products based on plant species.

Through the use of NANOTECHNOLOGY and through financial support from the private company LC Brito Consultoria (seed capital and coaching) and public bodies such as the Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo (FAPESP) and the Brazilian Research and Innovation Company Industrial (Embrapii) have been developed 3 Flag products of which currently own registered patents.

In the middle of 2015 it develops an institutional agreement with the Company of Development of the Polo of High Technology of Campinas (CIATEC), in which collaborative research works are developed.

At the end of 2016 NANOFITOTEC decides to enter Peru in the face of the growing development of the natural products industry, showing itself as a consistent alternative of scientific and technological criteria useful to direct the work with medicinal plants of the Public and Private sector.
