Cosmetics and Natural Products Section

One-stop Centre for Natural Products R&D

Cosmetics and Natural Products Section acts as a one-stop centre for research and development in natural products. We focus on developing and acquiring new active ingredients from natural resources that contain potent therapeutic activities which can be materialised into cosmeceutical or nutraceutical applications.

The technical expertise and facilities available are fully equipped to meet customer and legal requirements including ASEAN Cosmetics Directive, National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and HALAL requirements.

Natural Products Extraction (Upstream)

Rooted in the traditional preparation of plant extracts, our sophisticated modern extraction technologies selectively extract biologically active compounds while retaining their potency. We carefully perform safety evaluation prior to product development to ensure the extracts are safe for consumers. General overview of the upstream procedure:

  • Raw materials sourcing and screening
  • Extraction and standardisation
  • Bioactivity screening
  • Safety evaluation
