4Health: Synergy of 4 Sources of Natural Raw Material

Botany, Microbiology, Microalgae and Green Chemistry

The Synergy of 4 Sources of Natural Raw Material

Our products are the result of the synergies between 4 natural areas. We turn to nature to select the raw materials that best respond to the needs we cover with our group of companies.

The 4Health technology optimizes the value that we obtain from each of the areas by enhancing their effectiveness and thus increasing their efficacy. This efficacy represents an added value, which compared to the competition, offers natural solutions and an alternative to the productivity achieved with chemical residues.

We love listening to nature. We want to recover the balance that has been lost by the use of synthetic chemistry, which has harmed the environment, soils, crops, and consumer health.

A more sustainable and balanced environment guarantees the availability of natural resources and their renewal.



We have a unique view of botany in the sector. Our focus is to get highly efficient and homogenous alternatives to chemicals while minimizing the variation in the level of response of our products. The key to success is the methodology employed in the selection of raw materials, their traceability, extraction, and combination to find synergies with other natural areas.

    Optimization and Scaling



Our perspective on microalgae is also unique; we are pioneers in using them as an ingredient in products. As in microbiology, we identify microalgae and cyanobacteria as potential producers of molecules of interest. They are an active source of natural phytohormones, which have stimulating effects on crops and contribute to the resistance against biotic or abiotic stress. By using them as ingredients, we also consider their protective effects for use in the manufacturing of biopesticides. We treat them as microorganisms, seeking to optimize their beneficial properties by guiding their fermentation and potentiating them through synergies with the other 3 natural areas.

Green Chemistry

We are all chemistry. We understand chemistry as a natural technology that enhances the formulations we produce, through the synergies of the previous 3 natural areas, to obtain greater efficacy in the treatment of plants, animals, and humans. Our objective is to promote the effects of a solution naturally, without modifications caused by synthetic chemistry.
